Article Title: Investigating the Use of Sorghum as Malted Barley Adjunct in Brewing Process
by Ogbeide, S.O

This paper present the discussion and result which highlight the procedures involved in optimization in brewing industries by using sorghum as an adjunct to malted barley in wort production. The investigation carried out includes formulating models with linear programming and performing sensitivity analysis to actually optimize productivity in the brewing industries. In a developing country, it is encouraged to effectively utilize her locally available resources in order to reduce the cost of production. It was therefore concluded from the work that the use of sorghum as malted barley adjunct in brew production will lead to a cost reduction of #4.10K/Kg of grain
Keywords: optimization, wort extract, sensitivity analysis, sorghum, malted barley
