Brewers often call malt the soul of beer. Fourth in the Brewing Elements series, Malt: A Practical Guide from Field to Brewhouse delves into the intricacies of this key ingredient used in virtually all beers. This book provides a comprehensive overview of malt, with primary focus on barley, from the field through the malting process. With primers on history, agricultural development and physiology of the barley kernel, John Mallett (Bell’s Brewery, Inc.) leads us through the enzymatic conversion that takes place during the malting process. A detailed discussion of enzymes, the Maillard reaction, and specialty malts follows. Quality and analysis, malt selection, and storage and handling are explained. This book is of value to all brewers, of all experience levels, who wish to learn more about the role of malt as the backbone of beer.

Malts and Malting

Author: D.E. Briggs
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 0412298007
Release Date: 1998-09-30
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This book gives a comprehensive overview of malts and malt competitors, how they are made and evaluated. Summary-outlines of the malting process and malt-using processes are followed by consideration of the structures, germinative physiology and biochemistry of cereal grains. Particular attention is paid to barley, but the malting of other cereal is described. The successive stages of malting are then considered. Topics covered include the selection and purchase of grain, its evaluation and how it is handled and stored. The types of equipment used by maltsters are described and experimental malting techniques outlined. A section devoted to the production and characteristics of materials that compete with malts, including industrial enzymes, sugar preparations and mash-tun adjuncts. The principles of malt evaluation are explained, and the effect of altering malting conditions summarized. This book should be of direct value to maltsters, brewers, distillers, foodstuff manufacturers and other malt users as well as being of more general interest to food scientists and technologists in academic research institutions.

Genetics and Improvement of Barley Malt Quality

ISBN: 3642012795
Release Date: 2010-07-05
Genre: Science

Genetics and Improvement of Barley Malt Quality presents up-to-date developments in barley production and breeding. The book is divided into nine chapters, including barley production and consumption, germplasm and utilization, chemical composition, protein and protein components, carbohydrates and sugars, starch degrading enzymes, endosperm cell walls and malting quality, genomics and malting quality improvement, and marker-assisted selection for malting quality. The information will be especially useful to barley breeders, malsters, brewers, biochemists, barley quality specialists, molecular geneticists, and biotechnologists. This book may also serve as reference text for post-graduate students and barley researchers. The authors for each chapter are the experts and frontier researchers in the specific areas. Professor Guoping Zhang is a barley breeder and crop physiologist in Department of Agronomy, Zhejiang University of China. Dr. Chengdao Li is a senior molecular geneticist and barley breeder in Department of Agriculture & Food, Western Australia. He is also an adjunct professor in Murdoch University of Australia and Zhejiang University of China.

Barley malt and ale in the neolithic

Author: Merryn Dineley
Publisher: British Archaeological Reports
ISBN: UOM:39015053022672
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Cooking

Merryn Dineley's thesis is based on the premise that the 'biochemical laws that govern the processes of malting, mashing and fermentation remain unchanged throughout the millennia'. He therefore uses the results of scientific experimentation to search for evidence of ale and brewing amongst Neolithic residues. Following a discussing of the actual brewing process and later Viking and medieval embellishments, the study discusses the evidence for barley in Egypt and the Near East, the first evidence of grain in neolithic Europe and ceramic, environmental and structural clues for brewing in Neolithic Orkney and Grooved Ware sites in Britain.

Knowledge Attitudes and Malt Liquor Beer Drinking Behavior Among African American Men in South Central Los Angeles

Author: Didra Brown Taylor
Publisher: Universal-Publishers
ISBN: 9781581120905
Release Date: 2000-08-03
Genre: Medical

Alcohol use continues to be one of the most serious and complex social and health-related problems affecting the African American community today. A review of the literature suggested that African American drink less but suffer from more negative consequences of drinking. Although African Americans are only 14% of the population, they are reported to consume 30% of malt liquor beers. Most surveys which seek to measure alcohol consumption patterns for African American men refer to questions related to mainstream alcohol types. For African American men, the literature has not addressed these phenomena nor adequately provided a culturally specific theoretical framework by which to start addressing these issues. The present study uses an Africentric perspective based on the Association of Black Psychologist Behavioral Change Model (Nobels, et.al. 1998) to provide the conceptual framework for understanding the influence that age, level of education, and employment status have on African American men's knowledge, attitudes and malt liquor beer drinking behavior.
