DOCTORAL THESIS: Detection and characterisation of Fusarium hydrophobins inducing gushing in beer

1.11.2012 13:04


Gushing is a phenomenon in which beer spontaneously, without agitation, vigorously foams out from its container immediately on opening. Gushing has a marked negative effect on the overall image of beer. Two types of gushing can be distinguished based on the origin of gushing-inducing substances: Primary gushing is induced by fungal metabolites and non-malt related gushing, i.e. secondary gushing, is due to faults in the beer production process or to incorrect treatment of packaged beer.
