Conversion

From HomeBrewTalk Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Conversion is the process by which starch in the brewing grain is converted into sugar which can be used by yeast in fermentation. Conversion is carried out by diastatic enzymes during the saccharification rest in the mashing process.

An iodine test can be used to determine whether conversion is complete.
