Title: BEER OR CIDER CONCENTRATE
Abstract:
A method for preparing beer concentrate, comprising the steps of: a) Subjecting beer (1) to a first concentration step comprising nanofiltration (A) or reverse osmosis to obtain a retentate (2) and a fraction comprising alcohol and volatile flavour components (3), wherein the retentate (2) is characterised by the concentration of unfilterable compounds to or higher than 20% (w/w), preferably 30% (w/w), most preferably 40% (w/w), as calculated from density measurement corrected for the alcohol amount; b) Subjecting the fraction comprising alcohol and volatile flavour components to a next concentration step (B) comprising freeze concentration, fractionation, preferably being distillation, or reverse osmosis, to obtain a concentrated fraction comprising alcohol and volatile flavour components (4), and a leftover fraction (5); c) Subjecting the leftover fraction (5) of the next concentration step (B) to a fractionation, preferably being distillation, an adsorption or a freeze concentration to obtain a second fraction comprising alcohol and volatile flavour components and a second leftover fraction..
