Default HPLC analysis

Does anyone have any experience with HPLC analysis? Particularly fermentation and sugar profiles?

I use HPLC a lot, although not specifically for beer fermentations.

What specifically do you want to analyse from the beer? You can analyse for a range of compounds with HPLC. Some things that we do at the lab include sugars, organic acids, hop alpha acids, phenolic compounds, amino acids, etc. For sugars and organic acids we use a Bio-Rad Aminex HPX-87H column and a refractive index detector.
