Summary
Wort analysis may be required, or desired, with a variety of worts produced under different conditions. All worts have one thing in common–they are not completely stable and are subject to microbial, physical, and chemical deterioration. Accordingly, cooling rates, clarification procedures, and handling of wort samples must be standardized before comparison of analytical results can be made. This method is used to obtain representative wort samples and to prepare them for chemical and physical analyses.
