This project will apply proteomics analysis to beer and ales. The project will identify the different proteins in beer (glutens, albumins, globulins and enzymes), determine their source (malt, hops or yeast) and measure their levels during the brewing process. The goal is to link the protein population to the quality of the end product beer (its mouthfeel and head formation). We will then deliberately alter the protein population in beer using proteolytic enzymes with the aim of producing a beer with low gluten while retaining good quality attributes.
