IBU's (international bitterness units)
The IBU (bitterness) testing and analytical service - a bottle or can jor similar volume of finnished product will be needed for testing.
The IBU (bitterness) testing and analytical services offered are performed using American Society of Beer Chemists (ASBC) adapted methods. We perform this test by carrying out an organic extraction of all bitterness compounds and analyze using an Ultraviolet-Visible (Uv-Vis) Spectrometer. All experiments are performed using any desired commercially available beer as an external control/standard. In addition, all experiments are repeated in triplicate with the average IBU value reported with standard deviation.
1 can or bottle of final product will be needed for testing
