Temperature

Our storage areas are all electronically monitored and controlled allowing us to continually regulate the temperature of the grain. Each storage area has a number of temperature probes strategically placed across the bulk. This means that any hot spots in a bulk can be easily identified. In addition, regular visual analysis is carried out to check for any sign of heat, water and pest damage.

Significant changes in temperature could indicate problems such as infestation, water ingress or fungal growth. Keeping temperatures between 12⁰-15⁰ for malting barley reduces germination loss, extends storage life and protects against infestation. It is also important that malting barley does not get too cold as this can affect the recovery. Dormancy is a natural state that occurs in winter to inhibit germination when conditions are less than optimal. If the barley is kept too cold, this can prevent it from breaking its dormant state.
