The raw materials you need to know about craft brewing, barley, hops, water and yeast.
Understanding characteristics of these four raw materials and their impact on process is basis for their processing. Only in this way can targeted process control be carried out.
1. Barley: main raw material for brewing. Barley is used because it has a high starch content, and at same time, from threshing of barley to processing into malt, barley skins are always attached to malt, which can form necessary filter layer in subsequent production process. Before a brewery can brew beer, barley must be processed into malt.
Unprocessed grains such as corn, rice, sorghum, barley, wheat, or products thereof are often used as ingredients.
Wheat: Also used as malt, especially in top-fermented beers, especially in Africa.
2. Hops: gives beer a bitter taste and influences aroma of beer. The quality of beer largely depends on quality of the hops.
3. Water. Water is most commonly used raw material for brewing. Water influences character and quality of beer during production process during brewing, and is also required for many processes in malts and breweries.
4. Yeast: The alcoholic fermentation of beer is carried out by action of yeast, so yeast is necessary for brewing, and yeast by-products also have a big impact on quality. beer.
