Isothermal and short mashing with or without pH adjustment and use of exogenous enzymes compared to infusion mashing


ABSTRACT In 16 case studies the traditional infusion mashing method was compared with isothermal mashing at 60-65°C combined with short mashing at half of the normal mashing time. Also, the effect of mash pH adjustment (5.4-5.6) and application of exogenous enzymes (proteases, glucanases, amylases, and amyloglucosidases) was studied. The results indicated that isothermal short mashing is a potential economic mashing process. Adjustment of the mash pH had a positive effect on the mashing performance. The use of exogenous enzymes in infusion mashings gave an increase in the amino acid concentration but this is not essential for the later fermentation process since basic wort free amino nitrogen (FAN) levels are already high enough.
