Scientific Digest
Rapid and Sensitive Method to Measure Premature Yeast Flocculation Activity in Malt
H. Koizumi and T. Ogawa, Central Laboratories for Frontier Technology, Kirin Brewery Co., Ltd. 1-13-5, Fukuura Kanazawa-ku Yokohama-shi Kanagawa 236-0004, Japan

J. Am. Soc. Brew. Chem. 63(4):147-150, 2005
We have developed a rapid, sensitive, and reproducible method to mea-sure the premature yeast flocculation (PYF) activity level in malt without the need for mashing or fermentation. The analysis time was only 3 hr, and the PYF activity level measured by this method correlated well with that measured using a fermentation test. Furthermore, the PYF activity level in barley or green malt could be measured by this method. This method provides a highly efficient tool to test the fermentability of barley, malt, and wort.
