We are currently running a promotion for anyone who wants to try our VDK (diacetyl) or titratable acidity (TA) test kits. Any one who is interested can receive a free demo kit of each if you can cover the cost of shipping & handling ($25). We know that once you try them, you'll want to keep using them. Visit our website (beyerschemical.com/promotions) for more details.
We recently used the Beyers Chemical Co. VDK+ Test Kit to survey >30 beers purchased off-the-shelf for VDK levels. We collected VDK data for several different beer types, including ales, lagers, porters, stouts, sours, IPA's, and wheat beers. Respond to this email if you want us to email you the white paper as soon as it is done!
Many kombucha brewers always ask us how their kombucha compares to other kombuchas on the market. We recently re-discovered a study we performed at KombuchaKon in 2019 that explored Brix and titratable acidity levels in over 50 different kombucha samples provided by attendees.
Feel free to download this graphic poster that we made in an attempt to summarize all of the quality check points to be aware of in your process.
Get More Knowledge!
Our knowledge base blog is up-and-running. We have white papers, scientific posters, blog articles, videos, and more. Our goal is to add content weekly, and we hope that it will become a useful resource for you. Additionally, always feel free to reach out if you need help with testing, consultation, or identifying and understanding solutions for problems that come up.
Instrument for Sale
We recently upgraded our GC-FID and are selling the old instrument. It is a HP 5890 Series II GC-FID in good working order. It comes with a computer running the control software. We can also provide regulators and/or training if needed for performing ABV analysis using GC-FID. Email us if you are interested!

New Year Brings New Changes
We hope that everyone's 2021 has been off to a good start. We here at Beyers Brands have been busy creating a one stop shop for all beverage producers. The first piece of exciting news is that we have started to partner with Rocky Mountain Instrumental Laboratories. This will allow us to increase our capabilities as an analytical lab while still maintaining the quality and customer service you have grown to know from BABS. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out.
The New VDK+ Test Kit
We are excited to release our new chemistry for our VDK kits. Our new VDK+ Test Kit has increased sensitivity and higher intensity color changes for an easier determination of diacetyl concentration. The new chemistry has allowed the strip to be able to detect down to 50 ppb diacetyl in beer. Check out our new VDK+ Test Kit at www.beyerschemical.com.
Updated RedCheck Calculator
We have updated our RedCheck calculator. The new features let you choose what acid(s) you wish to report your TA in. You will also be able to email yourself a report with the TA vaults from your samples. For kombucha producers, we have added a scale to show you where your samples TA falls compared to the rest of the industry. To check out the new RedCheck Calculator visit: www.beyerschemical.com/rccalcs.html#/
