Barley based beverages are produced in large quantities, employing highly energy consuming methods, for example in the malting and brewhouse facilities for kiln drying and wort boiling operations, respectively. The present invention relates to energy saving methods for preparing barley based beverages, as well as to barley plants useful in such methods. In particular, the invention describes barley plants with combined traits of null-lipoxygenase-1 (null-LOX-1), null-lipoxygenase-2 (null-LOX-2) and null-S-adenosylmethionine:methionine S-methyltransferase in one plant, which is particularly useful for energy saving methods to prepare barley based beverages, such as beer.


A beverage font (10) for a beverage dispensing system. The beverage font (10) comprising a mixing conduit (24) having a first inlet 24A) for receiving a pressurized beverage defining a first alcoholic percentage and a second inlet for receiving an additive defining a second alcoholic percentage. The mixing conduit (24) further having an outlet (18) for supplying a mixed alcoholic beverage product constituting a mixture of the beverage and the additive. The font (10) further comprising a control unit (38) or receiving a parameter representing a specific alcoholic percentage or a specific concentration of the additive relative to the mixed alcoholic beverage. The control unit (38) being capable of causing the additive to flow from the second inlet to the mixing conduit (24) for generating a flow of the mixed alcoholic beverage defining the specific alcoholic percentage or the specific concentration of the additive relative to the mixed alcoholic beverage through the outlet.


The present invention relates to an insulating housing (12) for a FOB detection unit (14). The insulating housing (12) defining an internal cavity (28) for fitting the FOB detection unit (14). The insulating housing (12) defining a rear housing part (12) and a front housing part (12). The rear housing part (12) and the front housing part (12)being separable along an outer perimeter (12) of the insulating housing (12) for exposing the internal cavity (28) and accessing the FOB detection unit (14). The insulating housing (12) further comprising a set of recesses (26, 26, 26) extending between the outer perimeter (12) and the internal cavity (28) for accommodating a beverage inlet line (16) in fluid communication with the FOB detection unit (14), a beverage outlet line (16) in fluid communication with the FOB detection unit (14), and a cooling fluid line (24, 24) extending through the insulating housing (12) adjacent the beverage inlet line (16), the beverage outlet line (16) and the FOB detection unit (14) for cooling the same.

A method of filling a canister containing activated carbon having a first temperature with a propellant gas, wherein the method includes (a) providing a volume of liquefied propellant gas at a second temperature and a first elevated pressure that prevents it from evaporating; (b) evacuating the canister to create a vacuum within the canister, thereby cooling the activated carbon to a third temperature lower than the second temperature; (c) injecting the volume of liquefied propellant gas into the canister at a second elevated pressure that prevents it from evaporating; and (d) allowing the liquefied propellant gas to evaporate, consuming energy as evaporation heat, the energy being generated due to the propellant gas being adsorbed by the activated carbon, thereby reducing the heating of the activated carbon.


A self regulating and constant pressure maintaining product dispenser assembly comprises a dispensing device and a product container defining an inner space comprising a product space being filled with a fluid product constituting a carbonated beverage, and a pressure space being filled with a propellant gas having an initial pressure of preferably 0.5-1.8 bar above the atmospheric pressure when subjected to a specific temperature range of preferably 3 C.-50 C. The pressure space further comprises an amount of an adsorption material having adsorbed an amount of the propellant gas, which is sufficient for allowing the pressure space to increase in volume and to substitute the product space. The particular amount of adsorption material is inherently capable of substantially maintaining the initial pressure in the pressure space by releasing the propellant gas into the pressure space and adsorbing the propellant gas from the pressure space.

A bottle, container, or beverage glass for containing a hops-based beverage that includes a concentration between 10 pg/l and 10 mg/l of Riboflavin is at least partially transparent or translucent to visible light, and has an optical filter characteristic preventing or reducing light transmission at the wavelength intervals 220-230 nm, 250-270 nm, 350-370 nm and 440-450 nm to a level preventing generation of more than a tasteable concentration of MBT in the beverage through photochemical reactions and photochemically initiated auto-catalytic reactions involving the Riboflavin. The tasteable concentration is between 1 ng/l and 35 ng/l, preferably between 5 ng/l and 25 ng/l, and more preferably 10 ng/l.

A method of preventing the generation of more than a tasteable concentration of MBT in a hops-based beverage having a concentration between 10 g/l and 10 mg/l of Riboflavin includes holding the beverage in a container that is at least partially transparent or translucent to visible light and that has an optical filter characteristic reducing transmission to the beverage therein of all wavelengths of light between 200 nm and 510 nm, wherein the transmission reduction is sufficient to prevent the generation of a concentration of more than 35 ng/l of MBT in the beverage through photochemical reactions and photochemically initiated auto-catalytic reactions involving the Riboflavin. The container includes a wall defining an inner surface and an outer surface, and the transmission reduction is achieved by providing a film or coating having the optical filter characteristic on either the inner surface or the outer surface of the wall.


A method and a system for process parameter control of a liquid composition in a reverse electro-enhanced dialysis (REED) system comprising at least two Reverse Electro-Enhanced Dialysis (REED) membrane stacks, wherein the direction of the electric field within any one membrane stack is reversed at asynchronical intervals of time relative to the current reversals for any other membrane stack.

A beverage dispensing system comprises a housing defining a horizontal base and an enclosure extending upwardly from the base, The beverage dispensing system further comprises a tapping rod including a tapping device. The tapping rod is pivotably attached to the enclosure of the housing and is pivotable between a beverage dispensing position and a non-beverage dispensing position. Still further, the beverage dispensing system comprises a container holder for accommodating a collapsible beverage container. The container holder defines an opening, a rear wall opposite the opening and a side wall interconnecting the opening and the rear wall. The container holder is pivotably attached to the housing and defines a first position in which the opening is covered and closed by the enclosure of the housing, and a second position in which the opening is exposed relative to the enclosure of the housing.
