    Normal People's Description: The whole point of mashing is to break the starches present in grains down to something that the yeast can ferment. This is accomplished by two main steps, gelatinizing those starches (basically allowing them to absorb water) and then converting them to sugars. Gelatinizing the starches can be tricky since it causes the mash to become very viscous and thick (much like oatmeal or polenta) as you cook it. In some grains the starches gelatinize at lower temperatures, a temperature at which the amylase enzymes in malted barley are active. However, in some grains like corn, the starches gelatinize at temperatures high enough to denature the barley enzymes. The traditional way of handling this would be to gelatinize the corn at the higher temperatures (usually 185 degrees or more) and then let the mash cool to 150 or so before adding your barley (so that then enzymes are active and will break down the starches). This, however, results in a very messy, thick mash that is hard to stir and cool down to the point where you can add the barley to break up the starches. This is where the SEBstar HTL becomes a very handy tool. It can tolerate temperature of up to 190 degrees before it becomes denatured, so it allows for the conversion of starches at the same time as gelatinization. This prevents the mash from getting thick and gluey, making the distillers job much easier. That being said, it only breaks the starches into dextrins (which are not fermentable) so you will need a second enzyme, SebAmyl GL, to then break those dextrins down into simpler sugars that the yeast can easily ferment. This product will treat up to about a 100 gallon wash. **These enzymes are not returnable.
