In fact, the liquefaction and saccharification should proceed simultaneously.
The pulp or paste thus made is now placed in a vat, holding about 650 to 850 gals., in which the saccharification takes place.
The vat should be then covered and left to stand from three-quarters to one hour for saccharification.
saccharification may be recognized by the following signs: The mash loses its first white mealy look, and changes to dark brown.
(b) 'saccharification' of cellulose, cellulose hydrates, and hydrocellulose.
This saccharification of the starch may be accomplished by sulphuric acid or by the action of diastase.
