  • Foaming issue w/spirits

    Hi,

    We are a soda company and have canned soda successfully with our system. We are now attempting to add spirits to our soda and are having issues with foaming. We are canning from a bright tank so all of the product is mixed together ahead of time just like our soda was.

    Is there any reason that the spirit itself would make a product more likely to foam when packaging?

    Ethanol is slightly more viscous than water, rather to my surprise, so this may account for it, though I must admit to being surprised at this apparent level of difference in effect. Various lab research have shown that low levels of ethanol in beer increase the head retention, i,e, foam stability, but high levels reduce it. No idea what the transition alcohol content is though as it wasn't shown in the abstracts.

      At what temperature does the foaming occur?
      Any proteins in the beverage?
