and such.. did some googling but found no useful info..

Many thanks!

No chemicals used here, just 100% all natural as dictated by
Reinheitsgebot.
For more information, take a look at this book -

Well I'm also home brewer and I know how it goes...


Thing is that I'm supposed to assist on filming beer comercial for
television and if  I'll need to pure beer every time they need head, well a
LOT of beer will go down the drain (they repeat shots hundreds of times)...
that is whay I ask about chemicals, I know they exist but do not know which
ones are used in such purpose...

So any help would be appreciated,

Try cara-pils for good head retension.

Good luck,

Re: Beer design??


Who says that head on a beer in a commercial is real?  I know for
cereal commercials they use a mixture of dilluted glue for the milk,
b/c it looks better on film.  And ice cream is made from crisco and
food coloring (otherwise it would melt under the lights).  My guess is
most beer in beer commercials isn't 100% beer.  I would try to find a
book at the library on product photography, or post your question on a
newsgroup for film/photo.

Thnx

Re: Beer design??


There's this stuff that they sell in one of my catalogues that says it
improves head retention..it's in Midwest Brew Supply catalogue. I've
never used it. It comes in liquid form and you just add a drop or two
in the carboy. Also they say sasparilla helps with head retention as
well.
good luck with the commercial

Cara-Pils is a very unique dextrine-style malt that adds body, foam
retention
and beer stability without influencing color or flavor. Use
up to 5%, for most 5
gallon batches my recipes call for 1/4 - 1/2
pound.

That info will be found under the heading 'Secret Shit'.  Nobody knows
