Global Malt Market: Introduction
Malt is germinated cereal grain which is been dried in a procedure known as malting. The malting method modifies the grain in order to make the sugars trapped inside the kernel available for mashing. There are three major steps for the malting process namely; steeping, germination, and kilning. The major purpose of malting a grain is to release enzymes that are used by the brewer. Any of a variety of cereal grains including wheat, oats, rye, and rice can be used for making malt.
