By Dennis E. Briggs, Chris A. Boulton, Peter A. Brookes, Roger Stevens

Brewing is likely one of the oldest and most intricate applied sciences in meals and beverage processing. Its good fortune depends upon mixing a valid knowing of the technology concerned with an both transparent snatch of the practicalities of construction. Brewing: technological know-how and perform presents a finished and authoritative consultant to either elements of the subject.

After an preliminary review of the brewing technique, the publication reports malts, adjuncts, and enzymes. Chapters clarify water, effluents, and wastes; aspect the technology and expertise of mashing, together with grist coaching; speak about hops and are via chapters on wort boiling, explanation, and aeration. extra chapters current info on yeast biology, metabolism, and development; fermentation, fermentation applied sciences, and beer maturation; and local African beers. After a dialogue of brewhouses, the authors ponder a couple of protection and caliber matters, together with beer microbiology and the chemical and actual homes of beer, which give a contribution to features corresponding to style. a last team of chapters hide packaging, garage, distribution, and the retail dealing with of beer.

Based at the authors' unequalled event within the box, Brewing: technology and perform might be a customary paintings for the undefined.

Example text

When the malt has been dried the modified material is easily crushed and `friable', and is easily roller-milled, in contrast to the tough barley. The stages of physical modification are the progressive degradation of the cell walls of the starchy endosperm, which involves the breakdown of the troublesome -glucans and pentosans, followed by the partial degradation of the protein within the cells and the partial or locally complete breakdown of some of the starch granules, the small granules being attacked preferentially.

For eight hours, until the grain has been dried sufficiently. e. to hasten postharvest maturation). In flow-through dryers the grain passes downwards under gravity in a stream that is regulated by valves. The grain passes through a series of zones in which it meets air at different temperatures and is successively warmed, dried and cooled. If there is to be a period of warm storage the cooling may be limited or omitted, so that the grain reaching store is at 30À40 ëC (86À104 ëF), rather than 15 ëC (59 ëF) or less, which is desirable for long-term storage.

The living tissues respire and carbon dioxide and water are generated resulting in a loss of dry matter. The energy liberated supports growth and is liberated as heat. Many hydrolytic enzymes, which are needed when malt is mashed, appear or increase in amount. Some of these catalyse the physical modification of the starchy endosperm. In the initial stages of germination these hydrolases are released from the scutellum. However, after a short lag the embryo releases gibberellin hormones (GA1 and GA3, gibberellic acid).
