Scientific Digest
Storage Conditions Affect the Quality of Malting Barley

R. Reuss, J. Cassells and R. Nischwitz

CSIRO Stored Grain Research Laboratory, Canberra, ACT 2601, Australia
Barrett Burston Malting Co, Richmond, Victoria 3121, Australia

INTRODUCTION: The effect of storage conditions on the quality of barley is of considerable importance to the barley, malting and brewing industry. Storage can either reduce barley quality (Woods et al. 1994, White et al. 1999), or increase maltability (Woonton et al. 2001). To maximise quality of previously stored barley entering the malt house, the influence of storage environments on post-harvest maturation and changes in malting quality of contemporary Australian barley varieties needs to be better understood. Here we present some preliminary results of a three year project that aims to understand the interaction between storage conditions and barley quality. Samples of the malting barley varieties Stirling, Sloop and Gairdner were selected for storage trials, and stored under controlled conditions. The quality of the grain was then followed using germination tests, kernel colour measurements, enzyme analysis, Rapid Visco Analyser (RVA) tests and malting quality analysis.
