For the past four decades, MEBAK® has dedicated itself to the task of compiling, evaluating, verifying and publishing analysis methods for the brewing industry in the multiple volume collection Brautechnische Analysenmethoden (Brewing Analysis Methods). This has been made available in the form of multiple volumes and guidelines, which are constantly revised, reviewed, updated and amended by our team of experienced experts – as is also the case with Volume IV.

Volume IV was first published as part of Brautechnische Analysenmethoden (Brewing Analysis Methods) in 1987. Since that time, the first three volumes of the collection have been revised (Volume I in 1997, Volume II in 1993, Volume III in 1996).

Expending considerable time and effort, a special subcommittee of MEBAK® has painstakingly researched and documented the current methods for evaluating product containers and packaging materials, which ultimately led to the development of MEBAK® Volume V. This is why the second, revised edition of MEBAK® Volume IV no longer comprises chapters on glass bottles, bottle cases and cans. This volume contains sections on technical processing aids (filtering agents/filtering aids, clarification and stabilization agents, enzymes, tannins, activated charcoal), agents for cleaning and disinfection, conveyor lubricants, devices for the removal and prevention of scale deposits, additives, coolants (brine), ion exchangers, beer and beverage hoses and industrial gases/carbon dioxide, as well as systems for dispensing beverages containing CO2.

The creation of these sections followed the tried and tested method of employing experts for the tasks of authoring the text. The final text then underwent a subsequent editing process, in this case, performed by Prof. Dr. Peter Jäger (Vienna) and Dr. Walter Hagen (TUM-Weihenstephan). We extend our gratitude to them for their considerable effort in this endeavor, and we also like to thank all of our colleagues who contributed to the completion and success of this volume. We hope that it will be of great assistance to many in their day-to-day operations!
