Beer-44
Dimethyl Sulfide by Chemiluminescence Detection

VIEW METHOD

Summary
Dimethyl sulfide (DMS) is a compound that is typically produced during wort boiling from precursors (e.g., S-methyl methionine) from germination or malting processes. This gas-chromatographic headspace method employs chemiluminescence for the detection of DMS in finished beer.
