Default IBU & Hop Analysis in a lab

Does anyone have a method for testing IBUSs in a finished beer?

I found this. I would've liked to perform the first method listed but we don't have the UV equipment.

We do have an HPLC in the lab but I'm not extremely familiar with it, plus I want to test it in the finished beer not just the Alpha and Beta acids in the hops.

Any ideas?


Primary: RIS, Flanders Red, Berliner Weisse

On Tap: Brown Ale, American Stout, Pumpkin Porter, Pale Ale, Uncle Muscle's IPA, Rowsdower Canadian Dry Stout

Bottled: Berliner Weisse
