The Oxford Companion to Beer definition of
is a type of non-enzymic browning that adds color and flavor to many types of processed food, including beer. The reaction is named after the French chemist Louis-Camille Maillard (1878–1936), who stumbled on it while trying to replicate biological protein synthesis around 1910. In essence, Maillard provided a chemical explanation for these browning processes that occur in everyday cooking and thus had been empirically known since man began cooking food.
Maillard products are the result of a complex series of chemical reactions between the carbonyls of reactive sugars and the amino groups of amino acids. Maillard reactions are favored or occur more readily at higher temperatures, low moisture levels, and under alkaline (basic) conditions with pentose sugars (i.e., arabinose, xylose) reacting more than hexoses (e.g., glucose), which in turn react more than disaccharides (e.g., maltose). Amino acids also have differing propensities for undertaking Maillard reactions, with lysine and glycine being the most reactive. See amino acids. The final products of Maillard reactions are melanoidins (brown nitrogenous polymers).
The most favorable process phase conditions for the formation of Maillard products, proteins or peptides linked to sugars, occur during malt kilning. Kilning, owing to the low moisture content toward the end, is manipulated by maltsters to achieve the various combinations of color and flavor utilized by brewers to produce different styles of beer. See kilning. Crystal and caramel malts are produced by increasing the kiln temperature of well-modified green malt quickly to 140°F–167°F (60°C–75°C) to liquefy, or rather gelatinize the starchy endosperm. The crystal malt is finished by further drying and heating to produce the caramelized malt. More extreme conditions are used to produce other specialty malts in roasting cylinders by increasing temperatures from 167°F–347°F (75°C–175°C) and then more slowly to 419°F (215°C) to produce chocolate malt and to 437°F (225°C) for black malts. These have substantially higher colors and more intense, potentially harsher flavors.
Maillard browning reactions also take place in the kettle during wort boiling and can develop deeper colors in worts. They also occur during mash boiling phases of decoction mashes, and proponents of decoction mashing often claim that superior depth of malt flavor can result.

Golden Promise pale malt, made from the eponymous spring barley variety, is a UK classic. Historically the Scottish analog to English Maris Otter malts, Golden Promise is well used in any English or Scottish style ale. The sweet, robust malt flavor of Golden Promise has also made it a choice base malt for American IPAs, lagers, and several famous whiskeys.

I’m wrapping up the order for our 2012 member tees and need your sizes. If you have already contacted me with your shirt size, please disregard this post. If you have not contacted me with your shirt size, simply leave a comment on this post with your full name and shirt size. If you’d prefer not share this information with the world there is also a thread on the forum to submit this information. You can also email us here at Screen Ink headquarters (shout(at)screenink.com).
This is a 100% cotton vintage black tee from JAmerica. A step up from our typical shirt brand for club tees. Typically these tees are pre-shrunk but no one in the world can predict how you launder your clothing so plan accordingly.
We’ll try to have some samples of this shirt on hand at the next meeting if you want to do something awkward like try one on or something of that nature.
