Hop ingredients and their effect on gushing (Part 2)

Gushing is a very multifaceted – and still unsolved – problem in the brewing industry. The first part (BRAUWELT International No. 6, 2010, p. 356 ff.) gave a literature survey covering the influence of hops on gushing behaviour of beer. Results of investigations into the influence of hop ingredients on beer gushing were described. It was found that hop ingredients can considerably reduce gushing volume. The results support the supposition that gushing can be reduced by adding hops at a late stage in the brewing process.
