Fermentation Symposium—Part II Screening of the Brewing Performance of New Yeast Strains.
Sigsgaard, P. and Rasmussen, J.N.
The possibilities in modern genetics for the
construction of novel yeast strains have accentuated the need for fast
screening methods to evaluate the brewing performance of these strains.
Automated equipment with a total capacity of 60 2-L EBC-tube fermenters
has been developed. The equipment is described and some results from the
testing of new yeast strains are shown. The great capacity of the
equipment allows simultaneous testing of a large number of yeast
