Water + Malt + Hops + Yeast = BEER

The Brewing Process

The process of brewing beer can be like a foreign language. To learn all there is to know about it would take a handful of years with a lot of trial and error. Luckily, all of that isn't necessary to enjoy craft beer. 

However, it doesn't hurt to have some knowledge of the process. Here's our brewing process in 8 simple steps.
  1. Grain Mill - Grain is crushed for mash.
  2. Grist Case - Vessel storing milled grain.
  3. Mash Lauter Tun - Mashing process to convert starches into sugars. This sweet liquid (wort) is then transferred (lautered) to the boil kettle.
  4. Boil Kettle - Wort is boiled and hops are added at different intervals.
  5. Whirlpool - The whirlpool motion helps to separate the solids out of the wort.
  6. Heat Exchanger - Cools wort being transferred to fermenter.
  7. Fermenter - Yeast is added to cooled wort to start the fermentation process. The yeast converts the sugars to alcohol and CO2, turning the wort into beer.
  8. Packaging - The carbonated cold beer is packaged in cans and/or kegs and placed in cold storage.
