Mashing Process for produce Home Brewed Ale

Mashing is the process where malted ale grains are crushed and soaked in hot to lukewarm water. This would produce an actual malt extract from the crushed grains. The malt extract, also known as mashes, are contained in a storage tank that has a well-maintained temperature. The constant temperature levels help enzymes to efficiently produce sugars.

The enzymes found in the malt extracts produce a sweet tang by converting starches into actual sugars. This conversion process usually takes faster to complete in high temperatures. But keep in mind that the speed of such conversions directly affects the actual alcohol content and the taste of your home-brewed ale. Thus, you should consult professional home brewers regarding the most appropriate temperature to hold the malt extracts for the ale you want to produce at home.
