Using Spectrophotometry to Improve Your Brewing Process

Craft Brewers Conference 2013
Location: Washington, D.C.
Speakers: Rick Blankemeier

This seminar helps small, expanding breweries diagnose brewing issues with a spectrophotometer and discusses how to correct those issues and grow into the process when capacity increases. The seminar includes methods for determining IBUs, oxidative precursors, FAN, polyphenols (tannins) and beta-glucans in your beer using spectrophotometry, and how to use that data to establish standards for your current process to carry over to an expanded process. There will be cost-benefit analysis included to justify a spectrophotometer purchase as well.
