From the start, BrewFist has always focused on quality control of the beer production process. Thanks to the use of CDR BeerLab®, the analysis of beer, water and must became quick and easy, so it was possible to introduce the determination of many parameters that made quality control much more widespread.

Watch the video to discover all the benefits that CDR BeerLab® has brought to the BrewFist brewery, hearing it first hand from Pietro Di Pilato, founder of the brewery and Head Brewer, and Matteo Ambrosetti, BrewFist Lab Technician.

Watch the registration of the webinar presented by Simone Bellassai, Division Manager of CDR Foodlab®, about CDR BeerLab® in the program of education of the Master Brewers Association (MBAA) and dive into the technical information on improving the brewing process through the use of the CDR BeerLab® system.

When does the fermentation process end? How much sugar do you need to add in the priming phase? Researchers at the CDR chemical lab “Francesco Bonicolini” conducted a study on brewing with the aim of:
• understanding which is the best method to determine the end of the fermentation process;
• determining the residual sugar concentration in order to avoid problems in the priming phase.
For this purpose we studied the evolution of fermentable sugars as well as the variation of wort density during fermentation.

Department of Agricultural, Food, Environmentaland Animal Sciences of the University of Udine Italy, under the guidance of Dr. Stefano Buiatti, performed:

  • the evaluation of correlation between the results obtained using CDR BeerLab®  and those obtaibed with EBC (European Brewery Convention)  official methods
  • the evaluation of the correlation between the results obtained with the CDR BeerLab® and those obtained with the official methods of analysis on the parameters relating to the quality control of water used in brewing

The methods of CDR BeerLab® for analysis of beer, wort and water provided statistically correlated results (p <0.05) with low standard deviation values indicating good accuracy.

The reuse of yeasts requires particular attention to recovered cell efficiency, in order to ascertain just how much sediment is required to achieve suitable fermentation for the type of beer you are looking to produce.
Determining viability, the number of live cells in yeast sediment available for reuse, is a solution to this problem, but it will be not enough.
It is important to assess recovered yeast in terms of VITALITY.
Vitality analysis indicates yeast cell health, enabling us to ascertain to what extent cells are capable of feeding and reproducing so that alcoholic fermentation can take place.
provides results in acidification power.
Therefore the CDR BeerLab® method for determining is simple to use, provides rapid results, is reliable and usable by any operator directly at the brewery on the production line.
