Beer Analysis Sample Kit
The Beer Analysis Sample Kit checks for alcohol by volume and IBUs, with users being able to purchase a multitude of other testing options including diacetyl, alcohol, gluten, bacteria and wild yeast. Additional tests for purchase on Yeastman.com include color analysis, SO2, bacteria and wild yeast, and diacetyl.
(New: This sample test kit has been expanded to include additional tests for the same price as of summer 2014, based on customer feedback).
How do these kits work?
Each kit contains a numbered sterile bottle. Fill the bottle with your sample, log on to Yeastman.com to enter your sample info, place the prepaid shipping label on the box and send it back to White Labs. Your results will be emailed to you shortly after its return.
Do I do the testing at home?
All of the testing is done in the analytical laboratory at White Labs. All you need to do is fill up the sample bottle and enter your information online.
What if I want more tests than comes with the kit?
When you log into Yeastman to enter your sample information, you will then have the option to add on additional tests. If something you’re looking for is not listed, you can always give us a call or write us.
This kit comes with directions, a sterile sample bottle and a pre-paid label. You take a sample of your beer and send it to White Labs for analysis at their analytical laboratory.
The only other similar service that I’ve aware of is White Labs “Big QC” Day. With that got you was two beers tested for $139. That was marketed as a $500 service. To be fair it’s been a while since I’ve seen that offered and I don’t know if this is the most recent price. Also that included more tests than this kit does. I think… Diacetyl, alcohol content, calories, color, real and apparent attenuation and microbiological contaminants. Some of those tests are still available with this analysis kit for an additional charge.
