4.23 - Method to measure Congress Mash wort turbidity

This procedure is used for the determination of turbidity of congress mash wort. An adapted mashing regime is proposed to ensure complete starch saccharification when it is not complete with standard congress mash. In particular, it could be used to measure wort turbidity of malts with high starch gelatinization temperatures.

4.24 - Gushing potential of barley malt

For the last ten years, an increasing percentage of European barley malt samples have shown a tendency to create “gushing” beer. The gushing factors are believed to involve surface active molecules that form a layer around carbon dioxide bubbles present in beer, preventing these bubbles from re-solubilising and resulting in the over-foaming of the beer when opened. According to studies, this gushing phenomenon may be triggered by Fusarium infection. It appears to be highly complex and might be due to numerous factors. However, the mechanism is not fully explained yet.

The current method was adapted of the Modified Carlsberg Method with the help of the experts of “Barley & Malt” subcommittee experts.

5.1.1 - Inhibitors in Brewery Microbiology

The following list contains details of inhibitors that have been reported to be valuable in the selective growth of brewery organisms. Some ready-to-use media contain inhibitors included by the manufacturer. Others are base media where inhibitors must be added with due regard to heat sensitivity. Workers should pay careful attention to the safety and hazard information supplied by the manufacturer when handling these chemicals.
