Scientific Digest


20 years ago, the International Hop Standards Committee (IHSC) was founded to take care of the production, release and maintenance of HPLC calibration standards for use in the quantitative determination of various bitter components in hops, hop products and in beer. The new standard for humulinones was prepared with the help of John Paul Maye, Bob Smith and Jeremy Leker. The validation procedure included a collaborative HPLC study in which the prospective new standard was crosschecked against a high purity, DCHA-humulinones standard. So go ahead and find your humulinones.

Brewery news Sri Lanka: Lion Brewery urges government to come up with fool proof mechanism against tax revenue leakages
Sri Lanka’s largest brewer has urged the government to come up with a fool proof mechanism to eliminate the tax revenue leakages stemming from non-declaration of full production volumes by spirits makers, the Daily Mirror reported on February 14.

“As is common knowledge, a number of players within the spirits industry don’t declare their full production, thereby avoiding the payment of due taxes. We are made to understand that the resulting tax leakage is of a significant value.

Thus, a system to prevent such leakage is imperative and has our full and unstinted support. We trust the Excise Department will—in consultation with the alcobev industry— find a foolproof mechanism to eliminate this leakage,” Lion Brewery (Ceylon) PLC (LION) said releasing its third quarter results on February 13.

“It is imperative that the mechanism so decided upon is indeed fool proof, is easy to implement and is not outdated in terms of technology.

It is also imperative that the mechanism is cost neutral to manufacturers and is funded entirely out of the anticipated gain in government revenue,” the company added.

Meanwhile, Lion Brewery said the government revenue from the beer industry had grown by Rs.7 billion to Rs.25 billion in the first nine months ...More info on site

Brewery news Luxembourg: Brasserie Nationale sees increase in both production and sales of beer in 2018
The Brasserie Nationale, Luxembourg’s largest beer maker, saw an increase in both its production and sales of beer in 2018, RTL Today reported on February 14.

In total, the brewery brewed around 15,500,000 litres of peer (155,000 hectolitres), which marks an increase of over 700,000 litres. To look at it another way, the brewery produced an additional 3 million half-pints of beer compared to 2017.

This also was reflected in the brewery's turnover, which, having increased by 4%, lay at €10.7 million.

It is likely, the brewery benefited from the long period of hot and dry weather over the summer, as its profits before tax rose by 2.5% to €4 million.

Given Luxembourgish residents' beer habits, it is hardly a surprise that the Brasserie Nationale performed well.

BarleyBarley News Barley

Barley news Australia: Barley big winner in Western Australia’s grain harvest last year
Barley was the big winner in Western Australia’s grain harvest with an increased production of just over 5.1 million tonnes, up 35.1 per cent on 2017, the Farm Weekly reported on February 14.

In releasing its final crop report for the 2018 harvest on February 8, the Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) said WA’s final grain yield for the 2018 season was 17.9 mln tonnes.

This includes the 16.4 mln tonnes delivered through the CBH network plus on-farm seed and feed requirements and grain traded outside of CBH.

GIWA confirmed that it was WA’s second biggest harvest ever and the most valuable at just under A$7 billion.

The end result is somewhat a surprise for the State.

Earlier predictions of 14 mln tonnes following the dry spring and several severe frost events were eclipsed by a nearly 4 mln tonnes turnaround over most parts of WA, due to the late soft finish and mild temperatures during grain fill prior to harvest.

Total tonnage for the Kwinana port zone was up 2.2 mln toonnes from 2017 and Geraldton port zone was 2 mln tonnes up from 2017.

The Esperance and Albany port zones were both down from 2017 with a decrease of 0.5 mln tonnes ...More info on site
