Alcohol is the main legal parameter for bottled wines; the declaration of fake values entails severe penalties for wine producers. For this reason, the analysis of wine must be done in accordance with the official analysis method.
It is very important to check density, specific gravity and alcohol content during wine fermentation, in order to verify its progress and provide notice if it stops prematurely.
Must Production (young wine)
The density of grape juice indicates the amount of sugar contained in the juice before fermentation.
It can determine the expected alcohol content in wines, so it is very important to analyze its density accurately.
In addition to providing analytical support to wineries, these laboratories can release certificates of analysis with legal validity.
As well as wineries, these laboratories have to perform analyses in accordance with the official method in order to be sure of the accuracy of the values they certify.
Distilleries and Spirits
Companies producing spirits, such as distilleries, have products with a high alcohol content.
The ALM-155 is a high performance instrument working in the whole concentration range from 0.00% to 100% alcohol content. Therefore, the instrument is highly suitable for this application.
Monitoring density and specific gravity during the beer production process is very important for the quality of the final product.
ALM-155 can provide alcohol testing after the beer sample has been distilled.
Vinegar is obtained by oxidation of the ethanol content of wine, cider, beer, other fermented alcoholic beverages, or raw materials such as malt, rice and raw and cooked fruit.
Checking the alcohol content during the oxidation process is very important to understand when ethanol has completely turned into acetic acid.
