Free Amino Nitrogen in Brewing

Abstract: The role of nitrogenous components in malt and wort during the production of beer has long been recognized. The concentration and range of wort amino acids impact on ethanolic fermentation by yeast and on the production of a range of flavour and aroma compounds in the final beer. This review summarizes research on Free Amino Nitrogen (FAN) within brewing, including various methods of analysis.

“…Tests by Psota et al [48] demonstrated that the FAN content in sweet wort and grains is largely dependent on the year of barley growing (20%), the place of its growing (14%) and its variety (13%). Literature offers different recommended FAN levels for brewing wort [43]. In the case of Lt and Sc fermented samples, the obtained 130 to 140 mg/L is consistent with the minimum recommendations by Stewart et al [49] and Butzke [50] for worts with 10-12 • P extract.…”

“…In the wine industry, together with ammonium salts they are called YAN (yeast assimilable nitrogen). They can be also referred to as PAN (primary amino nitrogen), total usable nitrogen or usable nitrogen [42][43][44]. The FAN content in worts results from the barley malting process [45], mashing temperature profile [46,47] and content of nitrogen compounds in barley.…”

“…Initial wort FAN content and the amino acid and ammonium ion equilibrium in the medium impact the formation of esters, aldehydes, VKD, superior alcohols and acids, as well as sulfur compounds. Even small differences in wort composition can exert signi cant effect on the avor of the resulting beer (Hill and Stewart 2019). According to Taylor et al (2013), andKobashi et al (2008), there is some indication that the differences in the free amino acid pro le of sorghum malt worts compared with barley malt worts could in uence beer avor by affecting yeast metabolism.…”
