It is, however, recommended to allow a soaking rest of 1-2 h, otherwise the risk of contamination increases rapidly. A disadvantage of this KMV process is that unfortunately the autoamylolytic enzyme system in cereal grains is not stable at 60 °C for more than 10-15 min. In addition, the enzyme activities vary greatly between different charges of raw material (Fig. 1), and with different charges of raw materials different particle-size distributions result in spite of the use of the same mill. Both of these factors lead to an incomplete release and degradation of starch during the mashing processes.

Hammer mills or dispersion machines are used when milling grain for alcohol production. 5 mm screen. The degree of disintegration reached by this method is sufficient for ethanol yields of up to 621A per 100 kg FS if processed grain shows high autoamylolytical activity. If a sufficient autoamylolytical activity is not present in the grain to be processed - and in practice this is the normal case - the losses in ethanol yield increase. 5 mm screen to reach an almost total digestion of starch and ethanol yields of about 64-65 1A per 100 kg FS during mashing, especially if the grain or corn is waxy or dried after harvesting at high temperatures, inactivating the autoamylolytical enzyme system.

Henze Cooker Fig. 15. Mashing process according to GroBe-Lohmann-Spradau (Kreipe, 1982). 4 Mashing Processes 41 This GLS process permits good processing of potatoes. The result of the process, however, depends strongly on the milling efficiency, especially for processing corn. It is impossible to reach a total release of starch from plant cells with a reasonable expenditure of energy by using mills. Undigested starch leads to problems mainly during fermentation because of higher viscosities and risks of contamination.
