Why don’t we just ask the hops when they want they want to be in the beer? This is the question US researches posed in a recent study. Choosing two different hop varieties, Simcoe and Hallertau Mittelfrüh – they brewed these beers by using alternative hop regimes. Additionally, the impact of the yeast strains used on treatment was investigated and each treatment compared with an unhopped control. For more information read the full report below.
A research team in Germany have been considering why hops are good to increase flavour stability. The ability of hop constituents to suppress the formation of 3-methylbutanal and 2-furful in wort-like model systems containing maltose, leucine, and Fe2+ was investigated.
