Dissolved Oxygen (D.O): no two words strike fear into the heart of the brewers. As you’re probably aware, oxygen ingress into beer is bad news; the more D.O in a beer (counted in parts per billion, or ppb) the quicker it will develop stale, off-flavours that ruin a beer.
But how should brewers approach D.O? Is it simply a number that gets talked about when ordering a packaging line? What should brewers – many of whom simply can’t afford expensive measuring equipment – do to keep their D.O under check?
These are some of the questions we ask Wild Goose Filling Laurent Engel, on this week’s episode of the Hop Forward Podcast.
Over a few beers, Nick and Laurent – Business Development Manager for Wild Goose, based in Denmark – chat all things packaging; getting down to the nitty-gritty of canning and how brewers can package beer that they’d be proud to pour fresh from the packaging line and by the BBE.
