Barley News

USA: Malting barley requires special care when drying

Malting barley germination will be lost if adequate airflow is not provided to barley being dried by natural air or low-temperature drying so that it is dried within the allowable storage time, according to Ken Hellevang, North Dakota State University Extension Service agricultural engineer and grain-drying expert cited by Farm & Ranch Guide.

Minimum recommended airflow rates and drying times to dry the barley within the allowable storage time are 1.25 cubic feet per minute per bushel (cfm/bu) to dry 18 percent moisture barley in about 20 days and 0.75 cfm/bu to dry up to 17 percent moisture barley in about 31 days, based on typical August weather conditions.

“Drying occurs in a zone that moves from the bottom of the bin to the top if the air is pushed up through the barley,” Hellevang says. “Grain at the top will stay near the initial moisture content until the drying zone reaches the top of the grain, so adequate airflow to dry the barley within its allowable storage time is critical.”

Both the time required to complete drying and the allowable storage time will be longer at cooler temperatures because the cooler air holds less moisture. Drying grain at 60 degrees will take ...More Info

Scientific Digest

Improving Drinkability Using Multivariate Analysis

Hans Christian ALLER, Jeppe KIELDSEN and Carsten Wijngaard JORGENSEN

This article has been published courtesy of the European Brewery Convention (EBC). Abstract:
Experience shows that in day-to-day brewery operation, improvements in fresh flavour and flavour stability are often the result of several minor process adjustments. Due to the large number of variables involved in producing beer it can be difficult to demonstrate the influence of individual adjustments in full-scale production, and it can be difficult to conclude what are the most relevant factors that cause variation in beer quality. A powerful method to overcome this problem is to use Multivariate Statistical Analysis (MVA) to analyse data with the purpose of taking qualified decisions regarding modifications in process and raw material specifications. In the method described, data from full scale trial and control beers are evaluated by multivariate analysis with the aim of finding the key process changes influencing flavour stability. Our results show an improvement in fresh and aged beer flavour and a reduction in concentration of several staling descriptors e.g. Trans-2-Nonenal (T2N). The outcome of such flavour improvement projects using MVA will to our experience enhance the potential for a stronger position in the market due to improved flavour stability and thereby drinkability. We propose that the method described is used as an active tool to support marketing in promoting premium brands. The following material is based on data from 9 flavour improvement projects carried out by ALECTIA Brew over the past 6 years. Load full article from site www.cerevisia.eu
