Extract Concentration in Wort – The key indicator in beer production
Density can be used to measure the dissolved solids Plato (P°) in the wort extract at the wort kettle. Traditionally this measurement was made using a glass hydrometer. The extract content in the wort at the start of the Fermentation is a metabolic process that consumes sugar in t... More process is an indication of the potential final alcohol content in fermented beer. This measurement in some countries has a financial implication. The taxes paid on the beer produced are based on the wort extract and not the final alcohol content of the beer.
The extract, which is the result of sparging water through the grain bed in the Lautering process, contains the dissolved solids (sugars and higher molecular weight soluble fractions) from the grain that eventually through Fermentation is a metabolic process that consumes sugar in t...

More from Integrated Sensing Systems provides beer makers with the option of performing accurate density measurements in the brewhouse or in the lab. Only a few milliliters of wort or beer are required for making the measurement. There is no need for rinsing the A density meter, also known as a densometer, is a device t... More when measuring multiple beer samples. Yeast and dissolved CO2 in the beer will not affect the performance of sensor measurement. At the heart of the MDM150 is a patented, innovative, MEMS vibrating density sensor that is immune to the effect of gas bubbles in the beer. This assures accurate and consistent measurements that are available in seconds.
The MDM150 calculates sugar concentration based on measured density and temperature. Results can be displayed in the preferred units such as °Plato. Results are stored in a standard file format that can be exported into applications such as Excel for further analysis.
The MDM150 is a multifunction instrument that:
Measures specific gravity or °Plato of the wort
Provides an accurate density measurement for determining the alcohol concentration in beer using traditional glass distillation
Determines residual sugar concentration in beer using the residue from traditional glass distillation
Measures finished beer density for accurate weight based bottling
Can measure Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a fluid which is... More for additional insight into beer characteristics
