Category Management Studies

Steeping is the initial step in the malting process, and its primary goal is to let the seeds absorb enough moisture by weight to sprout effectively. Wet steeping and air rests are the two stages of steeping. The kernels are soaked in cool hard water for a brief period, just long enough for the seeds to sprout. The moisture content of the barley is examined to ensure that it has taken in roughly 42-46 percent of its weight in moisture, after which the water is drained, and the grains are set to rest. In Germination the seeds are spread out on malting beds and germinate when the steeping process is completed.

The degree to which grains are sprouted is referred to as modification. As a result, the purpose of this step is to ensure consistency in improvement. A specific temperature and maintaining the moisture level govern the rate of germination. It takes around 3-5 days for the seeds to germinate. The grains are checked regularly to verify that all of the sources are sprouting and changing simultaneously. After being thoroughly altered, the seeds are promptly dried to slow down the sprouting process even more. The last step of drying and kilning gives the malt its desired character and flavour.
