Scientific Digest


A couple of recent studies revealed that the increased bitterness in dry hopped beers is greatly influenced by the formation of humulinones (oxidized hop alpha-acids). Using previously established synthesis methods and preparative liquid chromatography, high-purity extracts of humulinones and hulupones were prepared for sensory testing. A trained flavour descriptive panel found humulinones to be 66% as bitter as iso-alpha-acids, and hulupones to be 84% as bitter as iso-alpha-acids. This study also found that the bitterness intensity of humulinones and hulupones are substantially higher than previous estimates of 35% and 50%, respectively. Whereas iso-alpha-acids were confirmed to be more bitter than oxidized alpha-acids and beta-acids, both hulupones and humulinones were bitter enough to potentially have a significant impact in beer, especially in dry hopped beers. The threshold value of humulinones was found to be around 8 mg/L in unhopped beer.

Brewery news Belarus: Beer import down five times in the past two years
Belarus has reduced beer imports five times in the past two years, Chairman of Belgospishcheprom Concern Alexander Zabello said in an interview to Respublika newspaper, BelTA has learned.

“I cannot say that the domestic brewing industry makes no headway. Yes, the sales are shrinking a bit, but we do not have a 10-15% slump as the neighboring countries are registering. Beer exports have reduced five times in the past two years. Dozens of beer varieties that were imported before are now produced in Belarus. The domestic breweries have reached a surplus in foreign trade, selling more beer than buying from abroad,” Alexander Zabello said.

Last year all the Belarusian breweries posted net profit, including even those who operated in the red for a long time: Brestskoye Pivo, Krinitsa, Heineken. “The concern has developed good business-like relations with the market participants. An agreement on cooperation was signed between Belgospishcheprom and the brewing companies. This document does not envisage any strict liabilities. It is about a direct dialogue between the regulator and the market actors. Regular meetings are held to discuss problems and elaborate effective measures to further develop the industry and protect national producers against unfair competition.

Brewery news India: United Breweries betting on its new Kingfisher Storm to wean away consumers from Carlsberg
India’s largest beermaker United Breweries (UB) is betting on its latest strong brew, Kingfisher Storm, to wean away customers from rival Carlsberg that has steadily gained 15% market share over the past five years, the Economic Times reported on April 27.

Storm will directly compete with Carlsberg Elephant, Tuborg Strong, and the recently introduced Tuborg Classic. The product will be rolled out across India in the next 18 months. This is the most aggressive launch by UB in over eight years, said acompany official, requesting anonymity.

“There is a movement toward a smoother drinking experience — typically falling between 5% and 7% alcohol content," he said.

To ride out a prolonged slump in the beer industry that fell 2% in FY17, UB is banking on youngsters to spend more on a strong beer with a smooth taste.

According to experts, India’s beer market has traditionally been driven by strong beer, which accounts for about 80% of the country’s overall sales volume of 300 million cases. This year, the beer industry is expected to expand 5-7%, paced by premium product launches and expansions, according to the country’s top breweries.

Brewery news Ukraine: Persha Pryvatna Brovarnia to start brewing Czech beer Krušovice under license in early June
Persha Pryvatna Brovarnia, an independent brewery based in Lviv, Ukraine, has received a license form Heineken Concern to produce Czech beer Krušovice and will start its production in early June, Interfax-Ukraine reported on April 27.

"This year we received a license from Heineken Concern to produce Krušovice and in a month will start producing this famous Czech beer," the co-owner of Persha Pryvatna Brovarnia Andriy Matsola said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

He said that usually it takes three or five years to receive the beer production license from Heineken. Persha Pryvatna Brovarnia started negotiations with Heineken in 2012 and at the end of 2015 and early 2016 the brewery launched Heineken beer production in Ukraine under the license.

"The vice president of Heineken personally flew [to Ukraine] to inspect. The whole structure was inspected: from the head office, retail staff, atmosphere and policy of the company to tests of production facilities. In 2015, Persha Pryvatna Brovarnia was the fourth company in the world that received this license from Heineken, not being in ownership of the concern," Matsola said.

He said that Heineken does not plant to enter the Ukrainian market.

Persha Pryvatna Brovarnia was created in 2004. It manages two breweries with a total ...More info on site

Barley news France: Barley condition declines sharply in farm office’s weekly report
The condition of French wheat and barley crops declined sharply last week, marking a third successive weekly fall, farm office FranceAgriMer said, suggesting a dry spell was affecting crops in the European Union's biggest cereal producer.

Warm, dry weather in the past month has raised concern about low moisture levels in France after a very dry winter.

In its weekly crop report on April 28, FranceAgriMer estimated that 78 percent of soft wheat crops were in good or excellent condition as of April 24, compared with 85 a week earlier.

Winter barley was rated 71 percent good or excellent, down from 78 percent a week earlier, while spring barley was rated 80 percent good/excellent against 85 percent the prior week.
