We studied a chemical sensor utilizing Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) in order to control the brewing process of sake. The SPR sensor detects the change of ingredients in the fermentation process such as a refractive index. Using SPR sensor to measure the refractive index at different four points of sample, we could obtain specific transient response curves depending on the brewing stage.
