The effect of the double decoction mashing method (method A) and the single decoction plus infusion mashing method (method B) on brewing were compared. The trials were carried out with the same raw material (malt and a minor amount of corn as adjunct) on an industrial- scale plant. The effects of mashing methods A and B were evaluated in wort and beer samples obtained with the high gravity system. The analytical parameters of the worts and beers produced and the economic aspects of production (yield, beer quality, time and energy) were discussed. The results showed no considerable differences in beer quality, while a significant difference was observed in the composition of fermentable sugars of worts. Method B gave a wort with a higher content of fermentable sugars which were converted to alcohol during fermentation; therefore, it allowed to obtain a higher beer volumetric yield of the same quality while saving time and energy.
