LAB EQUIPMENTS

LAB EQUIPMENTS

Lab equipment are the instruments that every brewer want to have to ensure the beer quality from a consistency angle. In the brewery industry lab equipments are used for quality control of beer, the quantitative determination of these below parameters were determined.

  • Wort extract, color, bitterness (BU), pH and dissolved oxygen.
  • Parameters for pitching yeast should be; cell count, dead cell and yeast pitching rate.
  • In Fermentation check extract (%plato), alcohol, top pressure, cell count, dead cell, growth rate, pH
  • Process quality control parameters for beer stabilization should be; CO2 content, temperature, top pressure, DO.
  • Process quality control parameters for filtration & BBT should be; turbidity (haze), dissolved oxygen, CO2 content, original extract or alcohol.
  • Process quality control parameters for packaging should be; CO2, total oxygen content and air in headspace.

One good definition for a quality beer is therefore simply “a beer that consistently meets specification.”
