8.10.3 - Free amino nitrogen in wort by automated discrete analysis (IM)

EBC Method 8.10.3 Free Amino Nitrogen in Wort by Automated Discrete Analysis (IM) – 2021 allows for the determination of the free amino nitrogen content in wort using photometric measurement of OPA (oPhthaldialdehyde) and NAC (N-acetyl cysteine). The method is performed manually or automatically at a 340 nm wavelength at 37 °C temperature.

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.

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

9.8 - Bitterness of Beer (IM)

The determination of the bitter substances in beer, which are mainly iso-α-acids.
This Method was updated in 2020. The update covers the “Precision Chapter”. It now contains two tables. In addition to the table on conventionally-hopped beers, it also reflects the results of a second collaborative trial on dry-hopped beers carried out in 2019 covering higher BU levels.

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
