The General Brewing Process

STEP 1
Select type of malt and process through the mill where it is cracked.

STEP 2
Malt goes into mash tun, which is mixed with hot water and then converts the starches into sugars.

STEP 3
The sweet wort is transferred to the kettle, which is then brought a boil for a period of one hour. At this point, the hops are added for the bittering, flavoring, and aroma.

STEP 4
The hot wort is run through a heat exchanger to rapidly cool.

STEP 5
The cooled wort is transferred to a waiting fermenter where the yeast is added and ferments for seven to 10 days.

STEP 6
After five to seven days, the temperature is reduced to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows the yeast to settle, a process known as flocking.

STEP 7
The temperature is reduced to 34 degrees Fahrenheit and what is now your beer-in-waiting settles.

STEP 8
Ten to 14 days later, the beer is filtered and transferred to a severing tank, where it is carbonated.

STEP 9
The best step of all. Your beer is ready to drink!
