Homebrewing Blog and Resource

The hobby of homebrewing beer


Here’s a site/service that may be helpful for you.  It’s called Beertest and Matt will analyze your beer for a number of different things:

  • Percent alcohol (ABV)
  • Bitterness (IBUs)
  • Fermentation by-products (diacetyl or fusel alcohols)
  • Color (SRM)
  • pH testing

Many of these tests would be interesting to me.  I might want to check out how my alcohol is really in my Imperial stout or how much fusel alcohols did I produce because my fermentation was too warm.

Check it his site here:  www.beertest.weebly.com

I have yet to use the service but I may want to send a sample of a barley wine over to him to check out a few things.

  1. What no IBUs? Thats the real selling point for most brewers if he’s going to compete with Whitelabs testing service. And what about microbe contamination counts. Whitelabs does that too I believe.

  2. He does bitterness testing – I updated the post. I don’t see microbe contamination counts as a service.
