Craft brewers enhance brewing process and product taste using the Cellometer X1 and X2 instruments

Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado has introduced a Cellometer to their brewing process, improving their procedures, as well as the product’s taste and quality. The Cellometer is employed as a quality control check over the yeast cells inside the facility’s fermenters. Making sure the yeast cells fermenting the beer are healthy and enzymatically active ensures a high quality product, with fewer mutated and/or dying cells that can negatively affect the beer’s flavor. Adam, the owner  of Avery Brewing Co. says that the Cellometer has “changed the way we made beer and it also changed the way our beer tastes”.   Watch this episode of [...]

Measuring Physiological and Metabolic Characteristics of Yeast Health for Beer Fermentation Samples using the Cellometer Vision

It's White Paper Wednesday! Read our featured white paper: Measuring Physiological and Metabolic Characteristics of Yeast Health for Beer Fermentation Samples using the Cellometer Vision Characteristics such as the viability, vitality, glycogen, neutral lipid, and trehalose content of yeast samples must be measured to better understand changes in physiological and metabolic status during fermentation [4-9]. Monitoring changes of these parameters during fermentation can improve current production processes, and a subset of these parameters (glycogen, neutral lipid, and trehalose content) has been shown to play an important role in predicting yeast viability both during and after fermentation [10, 11].
