Dimethyl Sulfide Precursor by Headspace Gas Chromatography

VIEW METHOD

Summary
In this method, gas chromatography is used to determine the levels of total and free dimethyl sulfide (DMS) in the headspace of malt extracts. The difference between total and free DMS corresponds to the amount of dimethyl sulfide precursor (DMSP) present in the malt sample.
