Sensory Evaluation of Specialty Malts

Presented by: Penny Pickart

August 2, 2016 from 8:30 AM – 10:00 AM  in Ballroom A-C


When it comes to choosing the best specialty malt for your brewing recipe, flavor contribution is one of the most important factors to consider. Whether you are looking to improve consistency or enhance creativity, sensory analysis of malt ingredients is a practice that will serve you well. Join Penny Pickart for a presentation on “Sensory Evaluation of Specialty Malts” where she will explore sensory methods that have been developed by Briess and the American Society of Brewing Chemists (ASBC) Sensory Technical Subcommittee. This presentation will provide a fundamental understanding of how malt flavors are generated and offer practical tools to perform your own malt sensory evaluations with a live demo of the Hot Steep Method.
