    Abstract

    This paper describes initial experiments carried out in a collaborative study with Perten Instruments, Sweden, using Near-Infra-red spectroscopy to assess ß-glucan content in single grains of barley and malt. In general, the method needs further development, but this study shows that it has potential as a valuable tool for assessing endosperm modification of malt. The method is fast and non-destructive and therefore allows other parameters related to endosperm modification to be analysed using the same grains. © 2006 The Institute of Brewing & Distilling.
