  • It allows establishing the degree of saccharification of the mash by determining the degree of decomposition of starch into simple sugars fermented by yeast.
    How to use:
    1. Sample a small portion of the mash onto a teaspoon and move it onto a white surface, e.g. a small plate. Next, using the drop-meter, apply the test solution to the mash sampled.
    2. If the sample becomes coloured navy blue (sometimes blue or reddish), it means that starch is present. No change in the colour of the test solution means that the mashing has been completed and the whole starch has been broken down into simple sugars.
    Ingredients: distilled water, potassium iodide, crystalline iodine
    Note: the product may create stains.
