AFAIK never used in a sentence.

bewSom  	[mash] (n)
  - “mixture of ingredients that, after a bit of time, produces fermented {HIq}. Maltz thought that maybe this was shortened from something like {bewSom roghmeH qegh pa'} "vat for fermenting {bewSom} room" or "{bewSom} fermenting vat room", but he wasn't sure about that.” (qepHom 2020)

“Mashing is the term given to the start of the brewing process, where crushed grains are mixed with water to form a porridge-like mixture called the “mash.” It is in the mash that malt and other cereal starches are transformed into sugars and proteins and other materials are made soluble, creating the sweet fermentable liquid called the wort.’ (https://beerandbrewing.com/dictionary/BkD3Ilopul/ )
