Sorghum Malting: Introduction, Objectives, And Scientific Principles, John R.N. Taylor Dec 2010

Sorghum Malting: Introduction, Objectives, And Scientific Principles, John R.N. Taylor

INTSORMIL Presentations

What is malting? It is limited germination of cereal grains in moist air under controlled conditions.

Why malt sorghum products?

Sorghum malt for home brewing

For brewing opaque beer, lager and stout

For “brewing” malt (malta) type non-alcoholic beverages

To produce malt extract for hot malted beverages,cereal and confectionery flavoring and coloring

For breakfast cereals

For “power flour”–enzyme active flour to “thin” infant porridges

Also explains the science of malting, and the importance of using high-quality grain.

INTSORMIL Presentations

Problem: Sorghum and millet productivity, production and consumption have been stagnant or declining for 20 years.

Challenge: How to increase the productivity and incomes of sorghum and millet farmers to improve food security and accelerate economic growth.

Solution: Better technology and linking producers to markets are important parts of the solution to the problem.

Objectives

Examine the effects of new production and marketing technology on sorghum and millet producers’ income and productivity in Tanzania and Zambia.

Identify better technologies, enhance market linkages between producers and buyers, improve quality and diversify utilization to ensure food security and increase farm income.

Conclusions ...


Eagle Lager: A Sorghum Success Story On Many Levels, Ian Mackintosh Dec 2010

Eagle Lager: A Sorghum Success Story On Many Levels, Ian Mackintosh

INTSORMIL Presentations

In 1999 in Uganda we were faced with a static but highly competitive market.

Needed to grow our market and to do this we needed to make beer cheaper

It was felt that a suitable local ingredient would reduce the cost of manufacture and stimulate local agriculture and the economy as well as provide opportunities for growth and profit for the company.

An extensive base line study of the Ugandan agricultural sector was undertaken to determine what was “out there.”

It was clear that there was enormous potential but little else.

Sorghum seemed the logical starting point because there was ...

Effects Of Malting And Fermentation On The Composition And Functionality Of Sorghum Flours, Onesmo N.O. Mella Dec 2010

Effects Of Malting And Fermentation On The Composition And Functionality Of Sorghum Flours, Onesmo N.O. Mella

INTSORMIL Presentations

Includes information about the sorghum market in Tanzania, and provides an overview of the chemical components present in sorghum grain and their effects on the nutritional qualities of the grain with respect to human consumption. Explains that malting and fermentation improve the nutritional profile of sorghum grain, and describes the methods used to test this hypothesis.


Sorghum Malting, Luke Mugode Dec 2010

Sorghum Malting, Luke Mugode

INTSORMIL Presentations

Malting is defined as the germination of grain in moist air under controlled conditions. Malting occurs in three stages: steeping (soaking), germination, and drying or kilning, then milling can take place. Malting changes the chemistry of the grain.

Water And Fertilizer Influence On Sorghum Grain Quality For Traditional Beer (Dolo) Production In Burkina Faso, S. Palé, S. J.B. Taonda, B. Bougouma, Stephen C. Mason Nov 2010

Water And Fertilizer Influence On Sorghum Grain Quality For Traditional Beer (Dolo) Production In Burkina Faso, S. Palé, S. J.B. Taonda, B. Bougouma, Stephen C. Mason

INTSORMIL Scientific Publications

In the Central Plateau of Burkina Faso, grain sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] is the major cereal crop used to produce the traditional beer called dolo. Grain sorghum grain samples collected in 2004 and 2005 from experiments combining five water management techniques and four fertilizer treatments in a randomized complete block design with a split plot arrangement of treatments were analyzed for the physicochemical properties of raw grain, and quality of malted grain. Water management techniques were allocated to main plots and fertilizer treatments to subplots. The objective was to determine the best combination of water management technique and fertilizer ...
