9.47 - Iso-α-acids and reduced iso-α-acids (Rho, Tetra, Hexa) in beer by HPLC

This method specifies a high performance liquid chromatographic technique for the simultaneous determination of iso-α-acids (Iso) and reduced iso-α-acids (Rho, Tetra and Hexa) in beer. Due to coelution of Hexa and Iso peaks, this method is not recommended for the analysis of beers containing mixtures of Hexa and Iso compounds.

9.50 - Bitter compounds in dry-hopped beer by HPLC (IM)

This method specifies a high performance liquid chromatographic technique for the simultaneous determination of iso-α-acids (Iso), humulinones (Hum) and α-acids (Alpha) in beer. It is recommended for dry hopped beers containing humulinones (and α-acids) in addition to iso-α-acids. Due to coelution of humulinones (or α-acids) and reduced iso-α-acids (Rho, Tetra, Hexa, see method EBC 9.47.1), this method is not recommended for the analysis of beers containg reduced iso-α-acids. This method was validated for the determination of humulinones and iso-α-acids in beer. The method is not a validated method for determination of α-acids , but can be used as a guideline method for the determination of α-acids

9.51 - DETERMINATION OF GLUTEN IN BEER USING THE R5 COMPETITIVE ELISA METHOD (IM)

It is imperative that those who are sensitive to gluten can be confident consuming foods that are labelled gluten-free or that are naturally gluten-free. The only process capable of ensuring that a product is 100% gluten-free is to utilize 100% gluten-free grains. For beer that is rendered gluten-free, the competitive R5 ELISA method is capable of detecting hydrolysed prolamins that remain in beer. The prescribed determination of gluten in beer is using RIDASCREEN® Gliadin competitive kit. This method is equivalent to the ASBC Method of Analysis Beer-49. According to the AOECS standard for gluten-free foods, the R5-competitive ELISA should always be applied to fermented and partly hydrolysed products like beer.
