The Analysis Committee

 

The work of the EBC Committees and Groups is perhaps best known through the Analysis Committee and ANALYTICA-EBC. Over the years, the Analysis Committee has developed, standardised, critically tested and published more than 170 analytical methods to cover the whole beer production process from its cereal base to final beer. The EBC analytical methods are widely used in brewers' and maltsters' laboratories to control the process and product quality as well as in the international trade to check the quality parameters in commercial transactions. The EBC Analysis Committee also works closely together with the 'American Society of Brewing Chemists' (ASBC) to establish so-called 'International methods' with world-wide recognition of applicability. A partnership declaration between EBC and ASBC has been signed. The integration of the IOB methods of analysis and EBC methods is nearing completion.

Within the EBC Analysis Committee there is a special subcommittee concentrating on microbiological methods. The work has proceeded to preparation of 'recommended methods' and the preparation continues with a target to publish the collection of standardised microbiological methods for brewing shortly.

Malting Barley Network Programme

EBC is currently engaged in investigating a platform for the exchange of malting barley varieties’ quality data obtained from trials. The project is in its infancy and is being developed further to ensure the continuing supply of high quality malting barleys to the brewing industry.

The Brewing Science Group


The EBC Brewing Science Group is a forum for scientists to follow a great deal of the EBC objectives. The Group basically covers all the scientific disciplines involved in the whole brewing process and also product quality, safety and wholesomeness. The Brewing Science Group consists of nearly 50 scientists from universities, research institutes and the brewing industry. The group is organised in subgroups around specific topics and quite often the activities of subgroups have resulted in an EBC Symposium on specific topics like 'Immobilised Yeast Systems', 'Beer Foam Quality' and 'Yeast Physiology', to mention just a few.
