Summary
Sodium can influence the flavor of the beer at higher concentrations depending on the style. Measurement can verify whether sodium-based cleaning solutions have adulterated wort or beer in the process, whereas pH may not show a shift. This method determines sodium concentration (mg/L) by atomic absorption spectrophotometry.
