The effects of spraying acetic acid or solutions of sulphur dioxide and of steeping in solutions of acetic acid have been investigated in micromalting trials. Spraying germinating grain with acid solutions on the fourth day of germination significantly increased both hot and cold water extracts and total soluble nitrogen, while reducing rootlet growth and total malting loss. The percentage fermentability of wort derived from malt sprayed with a solution of acetic acid was less than that of… CONTINUE READING
