Scientific Digest


The CO2 extract of hops is a well established hop product, where extraction takes place under supercritical conditions. It contains all hop compounds with brewing value, is easy to use and to store and the shelf life is exceptional. These Japanese Researchers looked into using CO2 extraction for other botanicals that can be used in brewing. Using gentle conditions (temperatures of 40 degrees Celcius), they performed supercritical CO2 extraction of lemon peel and coriander seeds. Changing the pressure of the CO2 resulted in different yields in hydrocarbons and oxygenated sesquiterpenes. These extracts were used in the conditioning phase of the brewing process and yielded better flavour results than using the corresponding raw material in the whirlpool. This demonstrates that CO2 extraction is a powerful technology to make flavour compounds from different kinds of aromatic raw materials more accessible.

News Articles

Barley news Canada & USA: Barley harvest completed with decent results in the US and weather damaged quality in Canada
Barley harvesting has finished in the U.S., and is coming to an end just now in the Canadian Prairies, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported earlier this month.

Weather finally cleared up to allow combining in Canada, but the damages done by incessant rain and snow storms, incl. frost temperatures, are bad. Discoloured grains, pre-germination, sprouting and even total losses are the result.

The Canadian malt industries need 1 mln tonnes, exporters have sold 5-600 thousand tonnes to China; selection of malting barley will be a major task for the industries and trade.

The U.S. reports a decent crop after all. A few hundred thousand tonnes of barley were downgraded in North Dakota; and in the end Montana and Idaho lost about 10% of their crops to winter weather.

Brewery news USA, IA: Lua Brewing Company opens its doors in Des Moines
A new restaurant and craft brewery featuring a shared-plate menu and specializing in German hefeweizen and pilsners opened on November 26 in Des Moines' Sherman Hill neighborhood, DesMoinesRegister.com reported.

Lua Brewing Company, 1525 High St., is next door to A Dong and a block south of Hoyt Sherman Place.

The brewery features a full line of handcrafted beers and creative brewpub fare in a modern and cozy environment.

"We want a welcoming, fun place to hang out with friends where we can push the envelope with good food and good beer," co-owner Scott Selix said.

Selix and wife Whitney, both 32, opened the brewery with friend Zack Dunbar, 29, and two silent investors.

The 6,200-square-foot space seats 120 people inside and an additional 100 people on a pet-friendly outdoor patio with views of the downtown skyline and a fire pit.

The concept was designed by Slingshot Architecture while general contracting was handled by Beal Derkenne, both located in East Village.

The family-friendly dining and beer-tasting room includes a 16-person harvest table made from reclaimed Iowa barn wood and built by Rustic Roots Wood Company in Solon.

An Iowa-centric mural near the bar was painted by local artist Mollie Wallace.

The owners said they fell ...More info on site

Brewery news USA, TX: Blue Star Brewing Company opening second location in San Antonio
The Blue Star Brewing Company is opening a second location at San Antonio’s North Star Mall, the San Antonio Express-News reported on November 26.

Owners Joey Villarreal and his wife, Magdalena, said there will be a soft opening for the new space on Friday, November 29.

"We are really excited to be a part of North Star Mall and have the opportunity to share our food and beers to everyone on the North Side," said Laura De Leon, executive assistant for Blue Star Brewing.

Blue Star Brewing, located on the South Side, has been open since 1996, offering patrons dozens of craft beers and bar food. The couple also owns Joey's on the St. Mary's Strip and Joe's Blues on the South Side.

The establishment said North Star Mall reached out to the South Side brewery looking for a way to offer craft beer to its patrons. De Leon said they were looking for a place to expand near the AT&T Center or the airport but decided North Star would be a perfect fit.

De Leon said the new location will have its full alcohol menu, including the addition of frozen margaritas, espresso and other drinks, adding that the food menu is "very San Antonian."

Brewery news USA, TX: Back Unturned Brewing joins San Antonio’s brewing community
A new brew pub has opened its doors in San Antonio. Called Back Unturned Brewing, the fresh arrival is located at 516 Brooklyn Ave., KSAT San Antonio reported on November 27.

Back Unturned Brewing offers craft beer that's made in small batches, with selections like Chocolate Coconut, Killer Kolsch and Haze Down Under being past creations. For food, look for pizzas, salads and desserts on the menu.

With a five-star rating out of four reviews on Yelp so far, Back Unturned Brewing seems to be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Yelper Deann D. wrote, "The staff is super friendly and service was on point. Had the Saison and my hubby had the Pale Ale. Both were great!"

Interested? Stop by to welcome the new business to the neighborhood. Back Unturned Brewing is open from 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on Tuesday-Thursday and Sunday and 11 a.m.–noon on Friday and Saturday. (It's closed on Monday.)

Brewery news USA, MS: Threefoot Brewing Company in the works in downtown Meridian
A new brewery is in the works in downtown Meridian. Co-owner John Purdy said he started home brewing around 7 years ago and decided he wanted to do it professionally, WTOK reported on November 27.

Purdy says Threefoot Brewing Company was inspired by one of Meridian's most historic buildings.

"Threefoot was the iconic building in Meridian and the two brothers that built that building had a lot of aspirations for what they wanted this community to be,” said Purdy. “That’s really what we wanted to espouse with Threefoot Brewing Company."

Purdy said after closing on the building, located on 23rd Avenue next to city hall, he and his team got right to work.

Investor and chief demolition director, Rebecca Combs-Dulaney, said the brewery will bring a new atmosphere to downtown.

“This is a project that was long and developing,” said Combs-Dulaney. “It’s an exciting process because every day you can see a tangible difference in what you've accomplished."

Purdy's wife and co-owner of Threefoot Brewing, Bridget Purdy, agrees that it is rewarding to watch what started simply as an idea actually come to life.

"It has been an exciting process, one we are very, very happy to see continue,” said Purdy.

Along with beer, the team says Threefoot ...More info on site

Barley news World: Grains and oilseeds consumption increases but stocks are still comfortable
World consumption of grains and oilseeds increases from year to year, stocks are reducing slowly, but supplies are still comfortable, H. M. Gauger GmbH reported at the beginning of November.

Nevertheless this year price levels recovered well from their summer lows, particularly for wheat; Mediterranean/Mideastern countries bought large quantities simultaneously and paid up to USD 25,- per ton more than a month ago.

Prices of corn and barley are around USD 10,- up since end September. Black Sea offers have dried up to an extent, that they are less competitive in world markets and give other origins, especially the EU, a better chance to sell their surpluses.

Bulls point to poor harvesting conditions in the North American plains, and poor crop outlooks in Argentina, South Africa and Australia. Bears expect the price bubble to disappear in view of sufficient supplies and increased offerings.

Politics continue to play a great part in commodity markets: the Chinese/U.S. trade negotiations, which already led to fairly large Chinese soybean purchases, the unsolved trade barriers for Canadian canola and Australian barley to China, the new government in Argentina, which will re-introduce export taxes on grains. And, finally, the Brexit has again been postponed, till 31 ...More info on site

Brewery news Japan & South Korea: Japan’s beer exports to South Korea fall to virtually zero in October
Exports of Japanese beer to South Korea, the domestic industry’s biggest overseas market last year, fell to virtually zero in October as Korean consumers shunned products from their Asian neighbor amid a dispute over wartime history, The Japan Times reported on November 28.

Last month’s figure follows a 99 percent year-on-year plunge in beer exports in September and a 92 percent decline in August, data from Japan’s Finance Ministry showed.

Last year, South Korea was the biggest export destination for Japanese beer-makers, such as Asahi Group Holdings Ltd., Kirin Holdings Co. and Sapporo Holdings Ltd. Japan shipped beer worth ¥800.34 million ($7.3 million) to the country in October last year, according to the data from the Finance Ministry.

Boycotts of Japanese brands by South Korean consumers have hit companies in other sectors, too, including Fast Retailing Co.’s Uniqlo and carmakers, after Tokyo introduced tightened controls on exports to South Korea of certain high-tech products in July, a move Seoul saw as unwarranted and politically motivated.

The two countries reached a last-minute deal last week to rescue an expiring military intelligence-sharing pact, but it remains unclear whether the two can end a fight that has spilled over into trade, tourism and security arrangements. Relations between ...More info on site

Brewery news UK: London craft breweries serving up enjoyable adventure for beer lovers
With more breweries in one city than anywhere else in the region, London is justifiably proud of the beer it crafts, The London Free Press reported on November 28.

Producing much more than a beverage, London’s breweries serve up an enjoyable and informative adventure for people who love a good pint – and those who haven’t discovered their affinity for beer yet.

Tastings, tours and gatherings are on tap for people looking to shake things up when going out for drinks. Local breweries are helping adults embrace the social side of responsible drinking with fun and healthy activities capped off with a beer.

London’s booming beer sector covers every preference, from craft breweries making small-batch, premium beers to Labatt Brewing Company generating beer in staggering volumes.

“Consumers now travel for an experience where they have the freedom to experiment with diverse and unique flavours and London has exactly that to offer in the beer scene. Not only do we host local craft breweries but also iconic brands in the beer realm. This plays a major factor in the uproar of brewery tours and craft beer as a whole,” says Aimy Thai, Tourism London marketing assistant.

“Each brewery in London has their own story to tell, ...More info on site
