The travel and associated study undertaken as a result of the scholarship had two core themes and the findings, conclusions and recommendations from this study are presented in this report... Australian farmers have been very innovative over the last 30 years and are amongst the most efficient in the world but I now believe this can-not continue as it has as we are losing too much human capital from food production...

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...
