Rapid Measurement of Alcohol (Ethanol) in Beer and Wine Making by GC/FID
Improvements in manufacturing processes and equipment have allowed beer and wine producers to increase both the quantity and quality of the products. In the consumer products business, it is crucial to maintain good quality control practices. The higher throughput of manufacturing plants requires faster, more sophisticated analytical techniques to do this. Classical physical and sensory tests may have been suitable years ago, but today’s health and government standards usually specify specific tests for the major desired components and the trace contaminants.
