Low temperatures are used to form the base for pale-colored beers, including pale ales and lagers.
When we talk about Malting, It consists of three major steps including steeping, germinating and drying grain to convert it into malt. The malt is used in various forms such as Biscuit Malt, Malt Extract, Biscuit and confectionery grade malt extract and in various recipes such as brewing or whisky making, Among the various steps of converting grain (barley, sorghum, wheat and rye) into malt involves a step, commonly known as KILNING.

Kilning is basically the process which reduces the grain moisture content and stops the germination process i.e., heating of germinated barley to dry it and develop malty, biscuit-like flavours. Kilning is the final stage in the traditional malting process, and comes after steeping and germination. The process of kilning is fairly simple, but its chemistry is complex

The process of Kilning invariably takes place in two or three stages. In the initial stages, most of the surface moisture of the germinated grain is driven off and in the final stages, the malt is “cured.” The major goal of these stages is to reduce the grain’s moisture content from about 40% to 50% down to at least 4% to 6%. There is no standard temperature to use and it varies with maltsters. No matter what the temperature is, the end result is - the growth of the sprouts is stopped and What is left is a dried barley grain full of sugar, starch, and diastase.

But if we talk about the typical sequence then it is step one at 50°C to 60°C (122°F to 140°F), step two at 65°C to 75°C (149°F to 167°F), and a curing step at 80°C to 105°C (176°F to 221°F). The point to remember here is that if the grain is heated too moist at too high a temperature, its enzymes would be denatured and thus it would be rendered useless for mashing.

Low temperatures are used to form the base for pale-colored beers, including pale ales and lagers.

Increased temperatures can be used to make amber-colored beers, such as amber ales, Scottish ales, and Oktoberfest.

At even higher temperatures, the malt will create dark brown beers like brown ales.

The highest temperatures are used to make the darkest, almost black, beers. These include porters and stouts.

Kilning is just one of the various stages and factors that go into any beer recipe, including a variety of sugars, adjuncts, and other grains that may be added. Yet, the way the malted barley is produced gets each brew started down its particular path. And We, Mahalaxmi Malt Extract, follows that very path and provides you with the best in class .
