Raw barley is prepped for brewing in a process called malting. Malt is the most important ingredient of beer. Malting prepares the barley to produce natural sugars in the brewing process.
Hop cones are picked dry, pressed into whole bales and are then added to the mixture to get pelletised.
Yeast is added and the mix is fermented, turning the sugar into alcohol. It takes roughly 3 to 4 days to ferment.
Water is 90% of beer.
Ales are fermented at warmer temperatures at the top of a tank.
They are robust, bold and fruity in taste.
Stout is a rich, black beer with a lot of flavour.
They are roasty, bitter and some malty sweetness with flavours of chocolate and coffee.
Lagers are fermented at cooler temperatures at the bottom of a tank.
They are refreshing, crisp, smooth and subtle to taste.
