This is the ASBC preferred International Method for alpha/beta acid analysis. Samples are extracted by solvents, and a portion is analyzed by HPLC (High-Performance Liquid Chromatography). This allows us to separate the acids, use a special qualified standard, and provide the % cohumulone and colupulone content.
In addition, samples are distilled in a 12 liter flask and the apparatus separates and condenses the hops oil. Results are expressed as mL of total essential oil per 100g of hops. (mL/100g).
