The impact of a conductive material as powdered activated carbon (PAC) on the biochemical methane potential of whisky pot ale (PA) and brewery spent yeast (SY) was investigated. The test was carried out with three different types of anaerobic inocula: manure inoculum (MI), sewage sludge (SS) and granular sludge (GR). Brewery spent yeast produced partial (in sewage and granular sludge) and total (in manure inoculum) methanogenesis inhibition due to the toxicity of some of its constituents (hops extract). The inhibition was overcome by the supplementation of PAC, that improved significantly the anaerobic digestion process for SY, allowing to reach biochemical methane potential values between 657-699 L CH4 kg-1 VS and it reduced redox potential from 369 to 398 mV. The activated carbon did not improve the methane yields from whisky PA since microorganisms did not have difficulties to process this substrate; in fact, the redox potential slightly increased from 355 to 330 mV.
