Malt is the soul of beer.
Malting is the process of sprouting and drying down seeds.
Malting is made up of 3 main steps:
Seeds are soaked in conditioned water, waking them up as if it’s spring.
Seeds sprout over several days in a conditioned space, unlocking their energy reserves in preparation for growth.
Before seeds use their newly available energy, they are carefully dried down to stop seed growth, while preserving enzymes.
