About usDear Analytica-EBC User
Last year marked an important change to the way Analytica-EBC presented itself to you, the subscribers and users. For the first time in the history of the European Brewery Convention, this update has started to appear "on-line", as part of the resource data base of EBC. This is the fruit of many months of planning and converting the existing data files into an electronic format. The EBC Analytica Microbiologica is now included and the structure has been changed from chapter 1 to 15 into 6 different sections (Chemical/Physical, Packaging and Packaging Materials, Microbiology, Sensory, Statistics, Archive). Soon, a newsletter will be sent out to the subscribers to inform about revised and new methods and, indeed, to ask for qualified feedback.
This work would not have been possible without the dedicated input by Fachverlag Hans Carl and the advisory role played by the EBC Analysis Committee. Please feel free to get a feel for the new electronic version of Analytica-EBC by browsing through the new system. I am delighted to report to you that the Analysis Committee has recently held an exciting meeting hosted by VLB in Berlin where several new methods and updates were decided upon. My thanks, therefore, go to all members of the EBC Analysis Committee for their hard work in bringing relevant new information and updates to the table.
Automatic updates, without having to worry about whether the method you are using is indeed the most recent one, membership-related issues and a supplier interface are only some of the benefits of the on-line version that I would like to highlight. As always, we are happy to receive your comments from you, the users.
Chairman EBC Analysis Committee
