Summary
The degassing of beer is a critical sample-preparation step for many beer analyses. Although multiple options exist for degassing, each has its own advantages and disadvantages, including degassing time, cost, throughput (one sample vs. multiple samples), release of volatiles (can negatively impact volatile measurements), impact on pH, and thoroughness of degassing. Through a student grant funded by the ASBC Technical Committee, a list of degassing techniques has been compiled with advantages and disadvantages for each technique. This information will be extremely valuable for all brewing laboratories.
