Scientific Digest


We learned from the NEIPA study that hops do contribute to haze, although in relatively low amounts. Other US Researchers have found that the extract of spent hops can be used to considerably decrease beer haze (if not intended as in most beer styles) and also helps to prolong physical stability if dosed basically as a fining agent in the final beer before filtration. Yes hops, you make it all possible!

Brewery news Ireland: Price of alcohol could rise significantly in case of no deal Brexit
The price of alcohol could rise "significantly" for Irish and British customers if the EU-UK Brexit backstop deal fails to make it through a Westminster vote and a no deal crisis occurs, BreakingNews.ie reported on December 3.

On Tuesday, December 4 the Alcohol Beverage Federation of Ireland is expected to warn "immediate" tariffs on beer, cider, glass bottles and other items will be introduced at the end of March if the deal collapses, in addition to customs check delay "additional costs" and extra VAT expenses.

In an opening statement to the Oireachtas agriculture committee, the ABFI will say that according to the Central Statistics Office the alcohol trade between Britain and Ireland was worth €364 mln last year.

However, if a no-deal situation occurs, it will warn all of these exports will be unable to avoid strict tariffs on products being sent from both countries - a situation the group said will "damage" the sector and hit customs in the pocket.

"The ABFI would urge all parties to seek to ensure that a withdrawal agreement is concluded and that a no-deal Brexit is avoided. A no-deal Brexit would be seriously damaging to the Irish and UK economy, including the all-island drinks industry. The potential ...More info on site

Barley news UK: Winter crop area seen higher this year
The provisional results of the AHDB Early Bird Survey of cropping intentions for harvest 2019 suggest an increase in the winter crop area, reversing the recent trend toward spring planting. This follows favourable drilling conditions this autumn for most of the UK and comparatively higher prices for combinable crops following the difficult summer this year, AHDB reported on December 3.

The survey was conducted in the first two weeks of November and this year covered almost 570 thousand ha of GB arable area.

The area of UK wheat is anticipated to rise by 4% to 1.86 mln ha in 2019, which would be over 66 thousand ha higher than provisional Defra data for 2018 and almost 28 thousand ha higher than the five year average (2014-2018). Winter barley is also forecast to see an increase in area in 2019 rising to 444 thousand ha, a 13% rise from the provisional 2018 area.

The increased forecast for wheat and winter barley likely come partly at the expense of spring barley, which is projected to decline in area by 3% to 735 thousand ha in 2019. This season is likely seeing a reversal of decisions made last year, when the wet autumnal weather in 2017 ...More info on site

Barley news Canada & China: China’s thirst for high-end beers fuels Canadian barley surge
At a laboratory in downtown Winnipeg, Peter Watts samples a golden pale ale, admiring the silky foam top and smooth, slightly grain-tinged taste. A new variety of barley grown in Canada’s Prairies helped flavor this beer, and brewers anticipate that the kernels will one day end up in shipments to meet China’s increasing thirst for premium ales and lagers, Bloomberg reported on December 4.

“We saw a real uptick in the last couple of years” in China’s demand, said Watts, managing director of the Canadian Malting Barley Technical Centre, a non-profit research facility funded by some of the nation’s malting companies, exporters, brewers and farmers. “We think that’s because they’re producing more premium beer.”

As brewers target discerning drinkers, the center is helping to fuel research of new malt-barley varieties that produce a richer mouthfeel, color and flavor than lower-quality grain.

Canada, the second-largest malt-barley exporter to China, is trying to gain a bigger slice of the burgeoning market from Australia, the top shipper.

China is the world’s largest beer market, and consumers are increasingly shifting to premium and foreign brews from mass-market brands amid rising incomes. The market share of premium lager in the five years ended 2017 more than doubled, according to ...More info on site
