Fermentation Analysis of Top-Fermenting Yeast – Inadome, Hironori

Presentation Abstract Top-fermenting yeast have a wide variety of fermentation properties, which strongly influence the flavor and taste of beer produced. We have investigated the fermentation properties of more than 200 strains of top-fermenting yeast by lab-scale fermentation analysis. The yeast strains were grouped by multivariate statistical analysis into clusters based on several [...]

Petite Mutations and their Impact of Beer Flavours – Josey, Maria and Speers, Alex

Presentation Abstract The occurrence of mitochondrial mutations in brewing yeast (i.e., petites) has been noted since before the mid-1900's. Relatively recent work has reported on the occurrence of these mutants in large-scale cylindrical-conical fermenters. It has been generally accepted that elevated temperatures and ethanol levels in the centre of the fermenter cone contribute [...]
