Color is an important quality parameter in the beer production. It is usually measured by means of a spectrophotometric method that has been adopted as an international standard by the main brewers associations in the world. The instruments based on this method are always present in the quality laboratory of the industrial breweries, but their cost is often not affordable for the microbreweries that need inexpensive solutions to evaluate the quality parameters of their processes and products. In this work, a low-cost spectrophotometer for the measurement of the color of beer, based on the European Brewery Convention (EBC) international method, is proposed.

Abstract

Color is an important quality parameter in the beer production. It is usually measured by means of a spectrophotometric method that has been adopted as an international standard by the main brewers associations in the world. The instruments based on this method are always present in the quality laboratory of the industrial breweries, but their cost is often not affordable for the microbreweries that need inexpensive solutions to evaluate the quality parameters of their processes and products. In this work, a low-cost spectrophotometer for the measurement of the color of beer, based on the European Brewery Convention (EBC) international method, is proposed.
