This study set out to assess the acetone content in rye sweet mashes prepared using the thermal-pressure method of starch liberation, and to investigate the formation of 2-propanol during the fermentation process. In the first set of experiments, we evaluated the correlation between the color and the content of acetone and furfural in industrially produced sweet mashes (n = 37). The L * value was negatively correlated with the content of both acetone and furfural, while chromatic parameters a * and b * and the yellowness index (YI) had strong positive correlations with acetone (r > 0.9) and furfural (r > 0.8 for a * and r > 0.9 for b * and YI). In the second set of experiments, we assessed the concentration of acetone and 2-propanol in distillery rye mashes, fermented by S. cerevisiae yeast and lactic acid bacteria. The influence of fermentation temperature on the formation of 2-propanol was also evaluated. The presence of 2-propanol in the post-fermentation media was confirmed, while a decrease in acetone content was observed. Fermentation temperature (27 °C or 35 °C) was found to have a significant effect on the concentration of 2-propanol in trials inoculated with lactic bacteria. The content of 2-propanol was more than 11 times higher in trials fermented at the higher temperature. In the case of yeast-fermented mashes, the temperature did not affect 2-propanol content. The acetone in the sweet mash was assumed to be a precursor of 2-propanol, which was found in the fermented mashes.
