Technological possibilities for transferring the colour of dark barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) into mash and wort to produce beers with a reddish hue

Is it possible to produce beer with a red coloured hue from coloured barley? Within this study by Doris Häge and her co-authors the influence of mash pH, wort boiling and hop addition were investigated on an experimental level. While the results of the study do not provide guidance for brewing a red beer, this does not seem impossible. Further research may allow the production of coloured beers within the framework of the purity law. (article)
