" E0017116: Microbial T-RFLP Screening as a Solution for Premature Yeast Flocculation (PYF) Assurance for Malt and Malting Barley Exports.. Premature Yeast Flocculation (PYF) is an intermittent but substantial problem for effected brewers causing substantial losses when PYF malt is inadvertently used... International brewers are becoming increasingly aware and concerned about PYF and this concern is spreading to our major market, China...

The malt must meet the brewer's set of specifications in terms of its quality performance in the brewhouse; as with the maltster, the brewer is chasing yield and when the brewer buys 100 tonnes of malt he wants to make as many hectolitres of beer as possible... Many brewers operate in highly sophisticated, computerised production factories and require malt of consistent supply, reliable performance and quality, and malt that the brewer is comfortable using. Many breweries make beer in batch sizes of hundreds of hectolitres using significant amounts of raw ingredient, and it is vital to the business (as in any business) that the product is made successfully... Depending on the brew being made, the brewer will issue a list of specifications to the maltster detailing quality parameter requirements like fermentability, total nitrogen (aka protein in barley), diastatic power, Kolbach, wort viscosity, wort colour etc...

Thank you to National Variety Trials (NVT), the NVT trial co-operators and breeding organisations for their cooperation in providing data... There is still some re-focusing required to maximise the opportunities for growers and maximise the opportunities for the trade... Varietal resistance to BYD and CYD does not reduce the need to spray for aphids to prevent yield loss from feeding damage once they reach threshold levels in the crop (50% of tillers with 15 or more aphids)...
