The Research and Teaching Institute for Brewing in Berlin (VLB Berlin) plans a research project for the development of alternative high gravity beer fermentations. These developments will be conducted within the BioLector Pro, a miniaturized fermentation platform for high-throughput cultivations in batch or fed-batch mode with online monitoring and control. The study will contribute to a more economic brewing process as well as diversified products.
The High Throughput Bioprocess Development Team of the TU Berlin will support this project by designing mechanistic models for a faster and better process understanding and development. In doing so, deeper scientific insights into the yeast metabolism and promising fermentation strategies will be achieved.
