Summary
Evaluation of barley extract by digesting ground barley with a mixture of enzymes somewhat simulating those that may be formed, or released, during malting may provide supplemental information of predictive value in malting. While results do not correlate very closely with extract yields determined on malt made from the same barley, they are useful for comparing barleys of different lots or varieties. This method determines barley extract, as-is basis, %, and dry basis, %.
