It's 5 O'clock Somewhere
Ever wonder how the best before date is determined on the bottle or can of beer that you enjoy?
Brewers determine this date by inducing artificial ageing in a batch of beer. Also known as a forced ageing test, this is accomplished by cycling the packaged beer from low to high temperatures over several cycles. Doing so expedites the maturation of the brew to a cloud point. The brewers analyze the beer and use a calculation to determine the ‘best before’ date.
The Julabo FP38-ME refrigerated / heating circulator has a 40 L bath tank holding 20 bottles up to 0.5 L. The handy rack enables easy bottle placement and removal while a clear plastic lid permits observation of the contents. The unit includes preprogrammed high / low temperature cycles that can be adjusted for temperature and number of cycles and a cycle counter. Programs and cycles can be customized as needed.
The next time you reach for a refreshing bottle of beer remember that a Julabo temperature control system helped ensure the products optimum freshness. Julabo: The Temperature Control Company
