Developing barley crops for improved brewing quality

Code: 9781786766175
Søren Knudsen, Finn Lok and Ilka Braumann, Carlsberg Research Laboratory, Denmark

Chapter synopsis: Barley remains the most important raw material for the brewing industry. Consequently, breeders strive to develop barley varieties for the brewhouse that enable an energy efficient and economical industrial brewing process. However, converting barley into beer is a complex process involving several subsequent steps, both during malting and brewing, each with its very own requirements with respect to the raw material used. This chapter follows the application of barley throughout the brewing process. The chapter describes the different traits relevant during mashing, such as starch quality and heat stability of starch degrading enzymes; during wort boiling, filtration, maturation as well as in the final product, putting special emphasis on barley-derived off-flavours. The chapter discusses applicable breeding strategies. Finally, the chapter looks ahead to future research trends in this area and makes detailed suggestions for further reading in this area.
