Definitions for "Kilning"
Keywords:  malt, germinated, barley, roast, beer
Drying wood under controlled temperature and humidity.
The last operation during the process of making malt, during which the green malt will be heated for a rather long time, in order to stop its germination and bring it down to a final stage of 3 to 4% of humidity.
An important step in the malting process, whereby germinated barley is dried in a kiln. By applying differing amounts of heat during the kilning process, various types of malt can be produced, which in turn influence the flavour and colour of the beer produced.
