Craft Beer Equipment Purpose of Saccharification

Craft Beer Equipment – Purpose of Saccharification

When you plan to build your own brewery, there are many factors that should be considered, such as brewery technology, brewery configuration, brewery costs and prices, licensing and regulation, etc. There are three important dissolution and transformation processes in the production of brewing equipment, germination-saccharification-fermentation, and saccharification plays a crucial role. Today, the engineers of Micet Craft will talk to the winemakers about the common problems in the saccharification process.
What is the purpose of saccharification? Let me introduce you to it.
The leap from home brewing to commercial brewing

What are enzymes in beer?

The enzymes required for the transformation process are all present in the final malt. The malting process produces enzymes, and for brewers, we need to focus on the activity of two main enzymes in beer: alpha-amylase and beta-amylase.
Alpha-amylase breaks down large, complex, insoluble starch molecules into smaller soluble molecules for use in beta-amylase. It is stable in the hot aqueous mash and converts starch into soluble sugars at temperatures ranging from 145°F to 158°F. Remember that the temperature range is important because as you reach higher temperatures the denaturation process increases and the enzymes are gone within five minutes. Pouring the grain into hotter “brewing” water to account for the drop in temperature can also cause problems. Even a few seconds of exposure to heat can affect enzyme activity, so make sure to lower your body temperature as soon as possible.
Beta-amylase is another mash enzyme capable of breaking down starch and producing soluble sugars. After alpha-amylase produces smaller soluble molecules, beta-amylase produces most of the fermentable sugars by breaking down starch to produce maltose, glucose, and maltose. These enzymes help produce lighter substances and more alcohol and are most active at 131°F-149°F. As temperatures approach 149°F, these enzymes run very fast but are also denaturing. In short, if the mash is kept at a temperature in the beta-amylase range, then a greater proportion of the soluble sugars will be maltose and thus easier to ferment.
What is saccharification what is its purpose

What is saccharification? what is its purpose

Saccharification, which means “making sugar,” involves enzymes that convert starch into sugars and dextrins during the operation of a saccharification plant. The saccharification of grain starch into fermentable sugars and non-fermentable dextrins is the basis for the formation of wort, a sugary solution that is later fermented into beer. Using various hydrolytic enzymes contained in malt, under suitable conditions (temperature, pH value, time), the insoluble macromolecular substances in malt and auxiliary materials are decomposed into soluble low molecular substances. This decomposition process is called saccharification.
The purpose of saccharification is to decompose and extract the raw materials so that the soluble substances in the raw materials are dissolved as much as possible, and the insoluble substances become soluble substances under the action of enzymes to dissolve out, so on get a certain amount of fermentable sugar, Wort for yeast nutrients and beer flavors.

Summarize

Many different types of brewing equipment and brewing transfer equipment are designed in the commercial brewing process, so there are many opportunities to manage and optimize fluid transfer, so that we can get more delicious craft brews, today Micet Craft engineers and brewers share On the method and composition of mashing, I hope the brewers can help you when looking for a planned brewery, and feel free to ask if you have any questions.
