Similarly, simple scorching or caramelization of sugars does not involve nitrogen-containing compounds, although ammonium salts are catalytic to caramel formation. Thermolysis of sugars involves extensive structural changes with dehydration, ring formation (cyclization), condensation and polymerization, forming many different ring compounds. As a result, highly flavorful and colored products are formed. , maltol, isomaltol and hydroxy-methyl furfural (among many others). The early stages of the Maillard reaction are known.

Disproportionation (also known as Ostwald ripening) is the passage of gas from a small bubble to an adjacent larger one, ultimately resulting in the collapse of the former and the growth to unattractive dimensions of the latter. Foams comprised uniformly of small bubbles are more stable and more appealing. Therefore, the formation of bubbles represents a critical stage for not only the aesthetic appeal, but also longevity of foam. Bubble Formation Beers are supersaturated solutions of carbon dioxide, and yet bubbles do not nucleate spontaneously.

Traditionally, a minimum of 3 days storage at –1◦ C has been advocated, though many brewers store for rather longer than that. It has been shown, however, that the extent of precipitation that can be achieved is actually complete within a comparatively short time at this temperature, indeed in much less than 1 day. Equally, it has been shown that the lower the temperature, the more material is precipitated, so that at –2◦ C, for example, material that is not precipitated at –1◦ C is brought out of solution.
