Summary
Small-scale wort fermentation (15-mL volumes) can be used to assess malt for premature yeast flocculation behavior and to compare the fermentability of yeast strains. This method may also be applied to malt treatments (or problem versus control malts) by performing the method simultaneously on all treatments. The method also includes a system for assessing (or comparing) malt performance quantitatively.
