Scientific Digest
The Effect of Germination Temperature on Malt Quality of Buckwheat
H. H. Wijngaard and H. M. Ulmer, Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences and National Food and Biotechnology Centre, University College Cork, College Road, Cork, Co. Cork, Ireland; and E. K. Arendt,1 Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences and National Food and Biotechnology Centre, University College Cork, College Road, Cork, Co. Cork, Ireland

Abstract: J. Am. Soc. Brew. Chem. 63(1):31-36, 2005 Common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) with and without hull was malted at four germination temperatures, 9.5, 14.9, 16.5, and 20.2C. Optimum characteristics of malts and resulting worts were obtained when buckwheat was germinated at 16.5 and 20.2C. Buckwheat without hull germinated at these temperatures showed similar values in soluble nitrogen and free amino nitrogen to barley malt. Both a- and -amylase activity levels were low in malted buckwheat. The maximum activity level of a-amylase was 47.79 units g1 (wet wt) in buckwheat without hull and germinated at 16.5C. The maximum activity level of -amylase was induced in buckwheat germinated at 20.2C: 129.80 and 125.68 units g1 (wet wt) were found in buckwheat with and buckwheat without hull, respectively. Maximum apparent fermentability (56%) was reached when buckwheat was germinated at a temperature of 20.2C. Although amylolytic activity and fermentability levels were low in malted buckwheat, buckwheat malt appears to have potential as a brewing ingredient once malting and mashing conditions are optimized.
