The present invention relates to a method of producing beer having a tailored flavour profile. More particularly, the invention provides a method of producing beer that comprises the successive steps of: a)fermenting a wort containing fermentable sugars with an active yeast to produce a beer containing 1-10 vol.% ethanol and further containing the beer flavour substances diacetyl; acetaldehyde;dimethyl sulfide;ethyl acetate; isoamyl acetate;ethyl valerate;ethyl hexanoate; iso-amyl alcohol and 2-methylbutan-1-ol; b)contacting the fermenting wort or the beer with porous adsorbent particles to selectively adsorb the beer flavour esters ethyl acetate, ethyl hexanoate, ethyl valerate and isoamyl acetate; c)separating the adsorbent particles containing the adsorbed beer flavour esters from the beer to produce a flavour adjusted beer containing 1-10 vol.% ethanol; d) desorbing at least a portion of the beer flavour esters from the separated adsorbent particles; and e)adding at least a fraction of the desorbed beer flavour esters to the flavour adjusted beer or to another beer, wherein the amount of beer flavour esters that is added to the flavour adjusted beer represents 5-95 wt.% of the amount of beer flavour esters that was removed from the beer by the adsorbent particles;


Patent
Carlsberg Breweries A S and Heineken Supply Chain B.V. | Date: 2017-01-23

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.


Patent
Heineken Supply Chain B.V. | Date: 2017-02-15

The invention relates to a nucleic acid molecule encoding a novel selection marker. Said marker is a guanidinobutyrase from Kluyveromyces lactis, which, when expressed in Saccharomyces, allows the growth of the yeast in the presence of guanidinobutyrate as the sole nitrogen source. Said marker can be used in a method for producing a microorganism having an altered genome. The invention further relates to a set of constructs, comprising a first construct comprising a recognition site for an endonuclease, a first region of homology with a target gene of a microorganism, and a first part of a nucleotide sequence encoding the selection marker, and a second construct comprising a second part of the nucleotide sequence encoding the selection marker, a second region of homology with the target gene of the microorganism, and a copy of the endonuclease recognition site. The invention further relates to methods for altering a target gene in a microorganism, to methods for producing a microorganism, and to microorganisms that are produced by the methods of the invention.
