2014 Grains Research Trial Reports

Check back to see the 2014 research reports as they become available to share on this website.


The UVM Cereal Grain Testing Laboratory is now reopened for the season! If you have samples you would like analyzed, please send payment along with a completed Cereal Submission Form that must accompany all request sent in. Click here for the Cereal Submission Form or visit the Lab website for more information. Thank you!


Hops Quality Analysis

We want to thank everyone for supporting the UVM Hop Quality Testing Laboratory! We have received many samples over the last few weeks and have noticed that many are above the recommended 8 – 10% moisture for storage. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to process and analyze hop samples that exceed these moisture levels. Please make sure all samples sent are dried properly and are not more than 8-10% moisture as we will not be able to conduct the testing.

At this time, we have one test available for Brewing Values (BV’s) which determines Alpha acids, Beta acids and Hop Storage Index (HSI). Click here for the Hops Analysis Submission Form to submit a sample.
