Example text

Harlan (1967) investigated the possible ways in which the ancients in the Near East might have harvested a wild grain crop, and concluded that the task could be effected by making daily trips through the field, knocking the grain heads into a basket with a stick or flail-like implement. Harlan found that he was actually collecting “nearly mature” The Beginnings 17 grain, because the fully mature grain naturally dispersed itself (between visits), and the immature grain remained attached to the plant.

It is allowed to stand on the third day, during which more malted grain is pounded, and on the fourth day this is suspended in water, boiled, and then added to the contents of the brewing pot. On the fifth day the brew is strained through coarse baskets to remove some of the husks, and then it is ready to drink. Kaffir beer is always consumed in an active state of fermentation, and is, therefore, opaque and effervescent in appearance, with a pleasant yeasty odour and fruity tang. It has been likened to “bubbling yoghurt”.

Likewise, the wild and early domesticated types of wheat were hulled, and so one may assume that they were more amenable to malting and brewing than are their modern “naked” counterparts. Even if the physico-chemical properties of the starch in those ancient grains were similar to those that we experience today, and if endosperm cell wall and protein sheaths around starch granules were of the same constitution, then the ancient brewer would have faced a number of challenges when practising his art.
