9.2.1 - Alcohol in Beer by Distillation

The determination of the alcohol content of beer using a distillation procedure and measurement of specific gravity of the distillate. Alternative procedures may produce accurate results but the distillation procedure is regarded as the reference method for alcohol.

It is necessary to use EBC Method 9.43.1 and 9.46

9.2.2 - Alcohol in Beer by Catalytic Combustion

The rapid determination of the alcohol content of beer using an instrument relying on catalytic combustion. The description of the method is intended only as a guide since the instrumental procedure differs from model to model.

It is necessary to use EBC Method 9.2.1

9.2.6 - Alcohol in Beer by Near Infrared Spectroscopy

The rapid determination of the alcohol content of beer using an automated instrument relying on near infrared spectroscopy (NIR). The description of the method is intended only as a guide since there are different types of NIR equipment available and the instrumental procedure differs from model to model.

It is necessary to use EBC Method 9.2.1 and 9.43.1 or 9.43.2

9.4 - Original, Real and Apparent Extract and Original Gravity of Beer

The calculation of original, real and apparent extract and original gravity of beer from specific gravity determinations obtained on the beer and on the alcoholic distillate and beer residue after distillation.

It is necessary to use EBC Methods 9.2.1 and 9.43.2 or 9.43.1

9.10.1 - Free Amino Nitrogen in Beer by Spectrophotometry (IM)

The international method for the determination of free amino nitrogen in pale or dark beers. The method gives an estimate of amino acids, ammonia and, in addition, the terminal α-amino nitrogen groups of peptides and proteins. Proline is partially estimated at the wavelength used.

It is necessary to use EBC Method 8.10

9.10.2 - Free amino niytrogen in Beer by discrete analyser (NOPA Method)

The determination of the free amino nitrogen content in beer using photometric measurement of OPA (o-Phthaldialdehyde) and NAC (N-acetyl cysteine). The method is performed manually or automatically at a 340 nm wavelength at 37 °C temperature. In the automated method, the side wavelength of 700 or 750 nm is also measured. The method estimates amino acids by measuring the terminal α-amino nitrogen groups of peptides and proteins. The method is specific for α-amino nitrogen. Proline, ammonia or ammonium are not included.

9.13.1 - Iron in Beer by Spectrophotometry with 2,2-Bipyridyl or 1,10-Phenanthroline

International method for the determination of iron in beer by spectrophotometry. Most of the cations of interest in brewing can be conveniently and quickly measured by atomic absorption spectrophotometry, using methods described in the literature. Descriptors: Iron in mg/litre, Calibration factor derived from the calibration graph, Absorbance at 505 or 520 nm with iron reagent added to the beer, Absorbance at 505 or 520 nm with water added to the beer.
