2017 Beer Testing Price List

You will notice, that some of the tests include additional results. These additional results are the products of obtaining values needed to obtain the final desired result. For instance, calculating the Caloric Content of a sample requires knowing the sample's Apparent Specific Gravity, Real Specific Gravity, Alcohol Content, Real Extract and Mineral Ash Content. As a result, those values are included in the test's reported values.

During the past year, we have seen dramatic fluctuations of pricing on reagents and materials and have tried to maintain our prices at acceptable levels. Some tests have experienced an increase in price, while we have found ways to decrease the cost of others. We don't take short-cuts that would compromise the quality of our work. All of our procedures adhere to the National and International protocols established by the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) and the European Brewing Convention (EBC). We verify the reliability of our methods by subscribing to the ASBC's "Test Sample Service", in which we provide results of analyses on samples they send us and they send us reports on how our results compared to the results sent in by over twenty National and International labs.

Above all, we pledge to assure you of the highest reliability in our analytical results.
