Case – Mashing enzyme activity tracking with SIBA

Enzyme activity is crucial during the mashing process in order to produce fermentable sugars in the wort. To date iodine test and chromatograph-based techniques are used to determine starch conversion, involving extensive manual and laboratory work. SIBA can not only compute this conversion automatically in-line and live, but is also able to track enzyme activity by analyzing trends on the average polymerization degree of the wort during mashing.

Case – Commercial enzyme savings and benchmarking

When using exogenous enzymes, choosing the supplier that gets you most value for money is tricky. Even questioning the actual valuation of the enzyme can be difficult without proper data. The SIBA technology allows you to get straight answers by exposing the true enzyme performance directly in the Mash Tun.

Case – Get to know your malt and grist

Todays brewer is challenged with seasonal and regional malt availability. The quality of malts and adjuncts can greatly vary due to climatic conditions during cultivation and harvesting, seriously affecting brewhouse yield. The gelatinization temperature of the starch will highly influence the extract coming into solution, and thus extract yield.

Case – Adjust process to Gelatinization properties

Malt gelatinization highly varies depending on the type, quality, seasonal fluctuations and even batch heterogeneity, causing changes in final wort parameters. Hence it is highly important to adjust the mashing temperature scheme to meet malt gelatinization properties. The SIBA technology can track this property by the gelatinization plots, showing the extract formation rate for the different degrees in temperature.

Case – Grain Bill Savings by Increased Adjunct Ratios

The mashing process is all about finding the right temperature balance for extract formation due to starch gelatinization and the enzyme activity happening during saccharification rest. Both the malt type and adjunct ratio will have an influence on the optimal temperature for your recipe.

Case – Fermentability within specs

The mashing process is all about finding the right temperature balance for extract formation due to starch gelatinization and the enzyme activity happening during saccharification rest. Malt and process fluctuations will highly influence the RDF of your wort challenging the daily process of brewing.
