Hops and taste stability – selective hop additions for beer preservation (Part 1)

Laboratory tests | It is generally known that hops are able to do much more than provide beer with bitterness, aroma and microbiological stability. To-date, the focus was on yield of bitter substances and hop aroma. However, no systematic research exists about the influence of hop addition and time of addition on oxidative beer stability. A research project at the Department of Brewing Science of the Technical University (TU) Berlin (AiF 17439) was devoted to resolving this issue.
