Old recipes, new techniques
Craft distillers love creating new tastes and experiences based on traditional recipes. However, new processes can present unwanted side effects, like floating unknown contaminants and particulates. FTIR spectroscopy is a technique that uses infrared light to collect information from unknown samples. By adding a microspectroscopy accessory, even smaller particles can be analyzed. This application note describes how this analysis is performed in the distillery spirits industry.
