Seeds of some grasses, of which barley and wheat are examples, contain plentiful reserves of starch which are located in a cellular storage tissue within the seed, called the endosperm. Starch, itself, is located in discrete granules (grains), of which there are two sizes; large and small (there are 5-10 times more small granules than large ones, although the latter comprise some 85% of all starch by weight). Each starch grain is surrounded by a protein sheath, and grains are evenly distributed within the endosperm cells.

The sour mash is diluted with twice its volume of water, and boiled for two hours. It is then cooled to 40-60 "C, and more malted sorghum is added. Starch conversion now proceeds for two hours, and the mash is cooled to 30 "C. 1(b)).

Nowadays, this mass is reincorporated into the beer, but in earlier times, before the introduction of sugar, it was used as a sweetener. When the middle layer has been removed, more muko is added to the sediment in the first jar, and the process is repeated.
