Scientific Digest


It is an interesting observation that dry hopped beers often have less stable beer foam. Why is this? Comprehensive testing by a research team has found that with dry hopping, the amount of iso-alpha acids slightly decreases in the beer due to precipitation. Increases in humulinones and alpha acids were observed but both are rather foam positive so they are likely not the cause. Beta acids are foam negative, but due to low concentration in beer, they are also not guilty. But two parameters were found to be of importance: 1) Temperature - the foam stability is very sensitive to temperature change, and 2) Hop lipids - they are known to be gushing surpressing, so it is no surprise they are foam negative. Problems with foam stability? Contact Barth-Haas to discuss!

Malt news Australia: Coopers’ Brewery signs contract for refrigeration plant at its Regency Park malting plant
Beers will be on ice next year at a new A$63 million malting plant in Adelaide’s northern suburbs, The Advertiser reported on December 25.

Local refrigeration firm Cold Logic has won a A$3.5 million contract to supply and install a refrigeration plant at Coopers Brewery’s new Regency Park malting plant.

The plant is the largest single spend in Coopers’ history and is expected to open late in 2017.

Three new compressor packages — designed and assembled at Cold Logic’s Port Adelaide factory — form part of a water chilling system that will circulate five million litres of water daily to regulate the plant temperature.

Three high efficiency screw compressors each weighing three tonnes, will chill the water as the system minimises the energy required to product the malt, a major component in beer production.

Typically, refrigeration makes up 40 to 60 per cent of a brewery’s energy use.

Cold Logic’s Eddie Lane said the two SA companies had collaborated for more than 30 years.

“Cold Logic was instrumental in the design and installation of the refrigeration plant at Coopers’ Regency Park facility when they relocated from Leabrook,” he said.

Coopers managing director, Tim Cooper, said the new plant would produce around 54,000 tonnes of malt annually, with two ...More info on site

Brewery news USA: AB InBev invests in growing its craft beer brands domestically and abroad
Anheuser-Busch InBev is making a number of sizable investments to grow its acquired craft beer brands both domestically and abroad, according to recent reports.

The world’s largest beer company is planning a large-scale international expansion for its biggest craft offering, Goose Island, and making significant investments to scale production capabilities for its Blue Point and Karbach Brewing brands in their respective home markets of New York and Texas.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Goose Island’s global strategy will begin to materialize in 2017, as it begins operating outposts in six countries, including:

•Sao Paulo, Brazil, •Seoul South Korea, •Shanghai, China •Monterrey, Mexico •Toronto, Canada •London, England

“It’s plain and simple — if we don’t do it, somebody else is going to,” Goose Island President Ken Stout told the Tribune.

In addition to increased product availability and the potential to brew large-scale batches of Goose Island beer at AB InBev breweries abroad, physical expansion takes three forms: Goose Island Brewhouses, Vintage Ale Houses and branded Goose Island pubs.

According to the Tribune, brewhouses in Sao Paolo, Seoul and Shanghai were set to open this month. The company’s Vintage Ale House concept also opened this month in London and a branded pub serving Goose Island beer opened in Mexico. Brewhouse openings in Toronto ...More info on site

Brewery news South Korea: Beer output increases continuously since 2010
South Korea’s beer output has increased continuously since 2010, while whiskey output has declined, according to data from the National Tax Service out on December 28.

That suggests Koreans are gradually losing their taste for potent spirits and mindless inebriation and coming round to a milder buzz.

Last year beer output rose 9.2 percent compared to 2011 to 2.21 million kilolitres, but whiskey production dropped 26 percent to 17,000 kilolitres.

Output of soju, makgeolli or rice wine and whiskey all dropped.

One brewery executive said, "Beer imports are up, while competition has increased with Lotte Group entering the beer market in 2014, resulting in a wider range of product choices. The market is growing."

Brewery news Georgia: EBRD agrees to provide EUR18.5 mln of loan for construction of greenfield brewery in Georgia
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has agreed to provide €18.5 mln of loan to Global Beer Georgia (GBG) to construct and operate a greenfield brewery in Georgia, Drinks Business Review reported on December 29.

It will be a syndicated loan package which will include an A loan of €6.2 mln from EBRD’s own account, a B loan of €6.2 mln from Dutch development bank FMO and German development bank DEG will act as a parallel lender offering another €6.2 mln.

GBG is owned by JSC Teliani Valley, a major wine producer in Georgia. The company is also listed on the Georgian Stock Exchange.

The company's new brewery produce both locally developed and international beer brands such as Heineken, Krusovice and Amstel to meet the growing demand for beer in Georgia.

Teliani Valley, which currently imports Heineken and Krusovice to Georgia, plans to produce these brands in the coming years.

It also plans to develop a new, local brand of beer and produce Amstel in coming years.

Apart from the loan, EBRD will also provide grants to GBG to implement energy efficient technologies through its FINTECC program, co-funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).

The grant will be invested in the construction of a CO2 ...More info on site
