Over the last few years, malt flavor research has advanced dramatically; with the advent of the ASBC Hot Steep Method and resulting Base Malt Flavor Lexicon, researchers, brewers and maltsters alike now have robust tools to aid in the sensory evaluation of malt for quality and consistency. The ASBC Hot Steep Malt Sensory Analysis Method will be discussed along with recent research results applying the method to evaluate malt flavor. Practical applications for Quality Assurance and Research and Development will be highlighted and participants will walk away with actionable tools to advance their raw material Sensory program.
