The Siebel Institute of Technology continues to operate all web-based courses and programs without any delays or problems. We have temporarily closed campus educational offerings until early August at this time due to the COVID-19 situation.

To support our recent campus WBA students whose education has been impacted, we have immediately offered our well-established web-based educational option to complete this portion of their current studies.

“The final touch”. Learn more about this last ingredient.

Description

One major contributor to the sensory characteristics of the final product (that is, its flavor, sensation, aroma and visual appearance) will significantly depend on the level of carbonation. This lecture begins by defining what carbonation is, and how it is measured. Also, in specific circumstances, not only CO2 but also nitrogen may be used; those gases exhibit major different behaviors. Finally, troubleshooting tips are presented to overcome the challenges of proper carbonation.


Learning Objectives

  • Define what carbonation is and the key variables that determine its level in beer
  • Describe the safety concerns involved in the use of CO2 in the brewery
  • Describe in which ways CO2 and N2 behave differently
  • Explain circumstances where the use of a mixed gas (of CO2 and N2) is desirable
  • Calculate the amount of fermentable extract needed to carbonate beer by means of a secondary fermentation
