    Calcium

    $22.00

    Description
    This test measures the total concentration of calcium, a naturally occuring mineral. Calcium present in water used to decrease alcoholic strength may be a cause of precipitates in spirits. Calcium is also found in fruits such as grapes as well as wine. The calcium present is due to uptake from the soil and is used as a nutrient during fermentation. High concentrations of calcium can result in calcium tartrate instability. Calcium is naturally present in water. It may dissolve from rocks such as limestone, marble, calcite, dolomite, gypsum, fluorite and apatite. Calcium is a determinant of water hardness, because it can be found in water as Ca2+ ions. Magnesium is the other hardness determinant. In some cases, additional calcium ions may need to be added to adjust water chemistry for brewing beer.

    Cobalt

    $75.00

    Description
    This test measures the total concentration of Cobalt, a naturally occurring mineral that is part of vitamin B12. Low levels of Cobalt have been shown to increase fermentation performance. At high levels, Cobalt is considered a contaminant and investigation may be needed in order to prevent undesirable levels. Cobalt concentration may increase due to bentonite used as a technological aid for clarification purposes as well as the attack of alloys during filtration. Cobalt can also show increased levels based on geographic region and industry.

    Copper (Residual)

    $26.00

    Description
    This test measures the amount of Residual Copper which can be introduced through the addition of copper sulfate or through contact with copper metal. Copper is also a natural occurring mineral commonly found in water. Excessive amounts of copper is considered harmful and may require steps to deal with the problem.

  • Microscopic Examination

    Microscopic Examination

    $24.00

    Description
    Our Microscopic Examination uses Phase Contrast Microscopy methodology, which converts phase shifts in light passing through a transparent specimen to brightness changes in the image, revealing many cellular structures that are not visible otherwise. A Microscopic Examination is a great way to help determine the presence of obvious unwanted microorganisms. Based on the results, we will assist with possible solutions for elimination. A Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Panel may also be needed for a more precise identification and cell quantity.

    An examination includes high resolution imagery and video up to 1000x magnification as well as our recommendations.

    Includes

    Potassium

    $22.00

    Description
    Potassium is found in fruits and fermented products. Natural potassium can increases as fruit matures. Potassium is also found in certain chemical additions, such as potassium metabisulfite. Final concentrations depend on addition rates of potassium containing compounds, as well as the amount of extraction from fruit through pressing and maceration. Potassium is a principal ion found in brewing water and can effect flavor profile. It is also an important mineral for yeast growth and is shown to have a relationship with pH and acidity.

    Description
    Sodium is found in fruits due to uptake from the soil, water, and other environmental impacts. Sodium may also be contributed through the use of certain sodium containing chemical additions. Sodium is also a principal ion in brewing water that can enhance perceived flavor. With the dependence on other ions (chloride and sulfate), sodium can enhance sweetness or can create an unpleasant harshness.
