This project examined and analyzed beer sample from Wachusett Brewing Company for haze properties and flavor compounds. The goal of experimentation was to evaluate the effect of centrifugation on the flavor of Wachusett beer. Reduction of haze was conducted with centrifugation of beer. The effects on flavor compounds were subsequently analyzed using SEC and GCMS methods. It was found that centrifugation significantly reduces haze without reducing the relative abundance of flavor-contributing compounds.
