Download the article “Analyses for control of the brewing process” to explore the issues related to the chemical analysis, useful to implement a control of the process of producing effective beer to obtain a craft beer without defects while ensuring high production standards.
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 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.

The international reference laboratory Campden BRI, innovation, research and technology centre for the food and drinks industry, carried out a study to evaluate the performance of the CDR BeerLab® for the analysis of yeast vitality and beer VDKs concentration. In summary, the CDR BeerLab® yeast vitality and VDK analyses show a linear correlation with the results obtained by the reference methods and the values obtained were similar (correlation R2 ≥ 0.9).

Case study: It has been thought that late-hopping and dry-hopping do not contribute to IBUs in beer. In Hackney Brewery, contrary to popular belief they have demonstrated a considerable increase in IBU value from both late and dry-hopping.
