LA MALTA, THE KEY INGREDIENT FOR BEER ELABORATION
GRAIN MALTING ACCELERATES THE NATURAL GERMINATION PROCESS
When brewing beer, we need to malt, which is extracting the sugars from the barley and other cereals to become alcohol. We introduce the barley seeds in cold water tanks and leave them for continuous oxygenation with saturated air in water, to keep the humidity for two or three days. The malting is the essential ingredient on the beer production! The goal from the malted grain is to accelerate the natural germination progress, giving the barley the perfect humidity, temperature, and oxygenation conditions. The goal of producing enzymes is to make the chemical changes that we need for the production of the future beer.
Some malts are known by the name of the beer style, for example, Pilsen malt, Pale Ale malt, Vienna malt, Munich malt, etc. Others are known by the aromatic malt characteristics: Aromatic, Chocolate, Toasted…
The malted process has three steps: soaking, germination and drying. With this process we activate the enzymes (amylases) of the cereal that makes the natural process (saccharification) of starch in fermentable sugars (maltose), during the maceration phase.
