European Brewery Convention

About the European Brewery Convention

Beer has been brewed for thousands of years with a step-by-step evolution in the science and technology leading to what we recognise as beer today. The European Brewery Convention (EBC) has played its part in developing methods for modern quality control procedures in brewing, malting and hop laboratories throughout the world. All technical aspects of beer brewing knowledge and scientific research in brewing science have been corner stones of the activities of the EBC.

  • Commitment to knowledge creation and exchange in the fields of brewing, malting and fermentation science.
  • Dissemination of brewing knowledge and research via EBC events such as the biennial EBC congresses and symposia.
  • To maintain the output of the Analysis Committee for new and revised laboratory methods.
  • To support individual technical projects involving the brewing sector at EU level.
  • To maintain a European and global network of brewers, brewing technologists and brewing scientists and fostering cordial relationships with the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC), the Master Brewers Association of the Americas (MBAA), the Brewery Convention of Japan (BCOJ) and the Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD).

EBC Congress 2019

The congress of the European Brewery Convention will take place in Antwerp on 2-6 June 2019. It is one of the most important events in Europe, and globally, for technical brewers, brewing technologists and scientists involved in the fields of brewing, malting, beverage engineering and fermentation.

  • The congress is attended by about 500 professionals.
  • There are more than 60 presentations planned.
  • EBC usually accepts 100+ technical posters.

The last day is reserved for technical tours to breweries, maltings, supplier / brewing engineering companies. In addition to the oral presentations, researchers are invited to submit their latest findings also in the form of scientific posters.

EBC Standard Malt

What is the EBC Standard Malt?

A standard malt is designed to be a representative sample of malt which can be analysed for extract recovery, wort colour, Kolbach index, fermentability and many other typical malt parameters. Key to the standard malt is the homogeneity of the barley lots that have been selected for malting. Additionally, the standard malt should be well within the detection limits of the parameters normally analysed; this means it should neither be too under- not over-modified. In essence, the EBC standard malt seeks to be a normal malt with no or very little variation of the sample across the whole whole batch.
