Formazin Turbidity Standards

Summary
The clarity of beer, or freedom from turbidity, is an important property. Whether turbidity is present because of processing factors or as a result of aging and/or chilling of the packaged product, a means for its measurement as related to a reproducible reference turbidity is a requisite for consistent measurement and reporting of results. In collaborative studies, formazin turbidity standards have proved to provide such a reference scale. This method permits the reporting of beer turbidity in terms of formazin turbidity units.
