FlavorActiV™ Enthusiast Kit



FlavorActiV™ has specialized in supplying Beer Flavour Standards since 1996 and is the world’s only provider of pharmaceutical quality produced and controlled GMP Flavour Standards for use in beer, wine, cider, carbonated soft drinks, waters and many other beverages to help train professional sensory panels.

FlavorActiV™ GMP Beer Flavour Standards allow you to train your sensory panels in a range of flavours that can naturally or artificially occur in beer, helping you to reduce the risk that a poor quality product will reach the market. GMP quality means a consistent, stable and safe product – every time.

The Enthusiast Brewer Sensory kit is ideal for experienced home brewers, microbreweries and brewing enthusiasts and contains 10 different capsules of the most common occurring off-flavours and taints found in beer. Along with our GMP Flavour Standards this sensory training kit also provides information about the importance and origins of the flavour to help further your brewing knowledge.
