Summary
Analytical data developed on a sample of beer reflect only the sample obtained. Whether the analysis is to be chemical, physical, or microbiological, the sample must be representative of the lot of beer to be examined. Where microbiological examination is to be made, special precautions must be taken to avoid contamination. This method is used to prepare samples for chemical and physical analyses; to collect samples aseptically from lines, tanks, and finished packages; and to decarbonate beer with a rotary shaker.
