PROCESS MALT EXTRACT (HOW MALT EXTRACT IS MADE?)

MILLING, MASHING & FILTRATION

The whole grain is crushed with the help of a hammer mill to produce Grist. Then this Grist is mixed with the hot water and is fed into a Mash Conversion Vessel (top) where the temperature is carefully controlled, to ensure that the starch is converted into sugar which dissolves in the water. The mash is then transferred to Meura Mash Filter (opposite) where the liquid known by the name of ‘Wort’ is separated from the remaining malt husk.

Evaporation

The ‘Wort’ is fed into a series of multi -stage stainless steel falling film evaporator steps, to concentrate it into to a viscous liquid. Evaporation takes place under vacuum in order that lower temperatures can be used. This enables the full flavour and characteristics of the malt extract to be retained. The resultant product is ‘Liquid Malt Extract’. This is either packed for dispatch to a customer or fed to the drying plants and turned into various types of ‘Dried Malt Extracts’.
