Barley germination

Postby jeanmarcdanquigny » Mon May 07, 2001 8:17 pm

In your latest issue (#16) you bring something new that has to become a regular topic in "Whisky words" : a very accurate answer to a single question. This time it was the germination of barley with a perfect description of acrospire, when and why to stop germination.
The difference between a magazine and a book is that you have (almost) unlimited space and time to explain technical subjects:

- difference between steam kettles and steam coils
- different types of barley
- what is a slow distillation?
- why are Islay and Orkney and other peats so different?
- how do malting drums (or germinating vessels, or Saladin boxes) operate?
- importance of worms condensers..

Dear Jean,

I'm very glad you liked my little write-up. I will try and answer some of your questions in future issues (if all goes well!).

Thanks again,


David Stirk
