Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article

Abstract

Grain with a minimum of physical defects is required to produce a uniform malt of acceptable quality. Three defects put malting quality and premiums at risk: splitting, gape and skinning.These occur to different extents depending on variety choice, weather patterns during grain filling and, to a lesser extent, agronomic treatments.
