Stability, Quality, Oxidation, Dusting, Sensory, Polyphenols
Did you know that beer has "memory"? Oxidation cannot be reduced. It can only be prevented. And efforts to minimize oxidation must happen from the very beginning of the entire beer production process. This lecture explains the important quality aspects that can impact the product, not only in its initial sensory characteristics, but also in the stability of those same characteristics through its shelf life.
