Analysis of beer using gas chromatography is often done for quality control, refinement, research and other such purposes. For instance, gas chromatography has been used to analyze alcohols, diacetyl, esters and aldehydes in beer. In this work, we introduce low-cost, highly efficient methods for the analysis of some types of beer using new cutting-edge gas chromatography technologies.
