    Abstract
    In order to produce consistent fermentation performance and beer quality, it is essential that yeast stocks are managed in such a way that variability in physiological condition is minimal. Providing that this is accomplished and there is adequate control of other important variables such as wort composition and oxygen concentration, fermentation performance is governed, in a large part by the yeast pitching rate. It follows that procedures that lead to precise and repeatable control of yeast pitching rate will result in consistent fermentation performance.The Yeast Monitor (Aber Instruments Ltd, UK), incorporated into an automatic yeast dosing system , is the only current workable means of consistently and accurately controlling pitching rate in-line automatically. Breweries that have replaced the manual laboratory methods for measuring the live yeast cell concentration with automatic pitching rate systems based on the Yeast Monitor have benefited from much more consistent fermentations. This might be reported as more consistent fermentation rates and times or fewer corrective actions such as beer blending. It follows that any improvements in the consistency of fermentation will result in an improvement in quality of the final beer.In this poster we report the findings of using the Yeast Monitor at SAB Ltd in South Africa. RDF (real degree of fermentation) and ferment rates before and after the installation of the Yeast Monitor were used as a measure of success of the installation.

  • Consistent Fermentations - Monitoring and controlling the live yeast cell concentration with the yeast monitor

    Abstract
    The Aber Yeast Monitor is a now a very well established instrument for on-line monitoring and controlling the live yeast cell concentration in brewery processes and the same capacitance technology is also widely used in bio-pharmaceutical applications with yeast, bacteria, animal and plant cells. The Yeast Monitor is typically incorporated into an automatic yeast dosing system for precise control of yeast pitching rates at the start of fermentation. All other ingredients that go into the brewing process are carefully measured to obtain as much control of the fermentation as possible. The use of an Aber Yeast Monitor now allows the same degree of control for the last equally important ingredient, namely the yeast.
