Malt smashing usually use dry crushing, wet crushing, moisture regain grinding and consecutive humidifying crushing four ways.
Dry crushing: is a traditional crushing way, requires moisture of malt is better between 6%~8%.
Wet crushing: The malt is soaked in warm water of 20 ° C ~ 50 ° C for 15-20 minutes, so that the water moisture of the malt reaches 25% - 30%, and then pulverized by a wet malt miller.
Moisture regain grinding: also called humidification crushing, it is to send steam or a certain temperature of hot water to the malt in a short time to humidify the wheat hull, so that the husk is elastic and not broken, and remains relatively intact during crushing, which is favorable for filtration.
Consecutive humidifying crushing：organic combines wet crushing and humidification crushing, make malt entre to the soaking chamber during the function of adding material stick, then soaking it 60 seconds in warm water, so the moisture of malt can up to 23%~25%.The malt husk is elastic and then enters the malt miller. It is crushed and sprayed water at same time. After crushed, it falls into the mixing tank. After adding water and becoming thick liquid, it is pumped into the mashing pot.
