Transcript of Beer 101

Brewing Process Beer Styles:
The main differentiating factor is the type yeast used during fermentation. Ales
Ales use top fermenting yeast which prefer warmer temperature for the fermentation process. Ales are also catogorized as American Ales and European Ales. Lagers
Lagers use bottom fermenting yeast that prefer cooler temperature. Therefore lagers tend to take longer to brew and ferment. Lagers can be catagorized as American Lagers and European Lagers. Beer Ingredients:
Barley, Hops, Yeast , Water Malting
Malting converts insoluble starch into soluble starch. The three main steps of malting process are steeping, germination and kilning. Miling
The objective of the milling is to reduce the particle size of the malt that will operate satisfactorily under the brewing conditions. Mashing
Mashing involves mixing milled malt with water at a set temperature to convert the starch into fermentable sugars and proteins. The end result is now called the wort (pronounced wert). The wort is then separated from the solids by using a luater tun or a mash tun. Brewing
During brewing process, the wort is boiled to stabilize the wort. Also at this time hops are added to enhance the bitterness and/or the aroma of the final beer. Cooling
After the brewing process, the wort needs to be cooled quickly to a set temperature depending on the type of yeast that is to be used. Fermenting and Maturation
Fermentation is the process during which fermentable carbohydrates are converted to alcohol, carbon dioxide and numerous other byproducts by the "pitched" yeast. Following the initial fermentation, the immature beer is allowed to mature, clarify and stabilize during the maturation process. Filteration
During this process the hazy beer is filtered to produce a crisp, clear product. Note that not all beers are filtered and many microbreweries do not filter their beers. Packaging
Finally the beer is packaged in form of bottles or kegs for your enjoyment. Unlike wine, beer is at its best soon after packaging. Therefore refrigeration is very important for beer products to continue to stay fresh. American Ales

Our beers are a blend of old style european tradition and California style and creativity Remember to always drink responsibly and never drink and drive. Excessive drinking has been linked to alcoholism, liver cirrhosis, heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and many other illnesses. On the contrary, drinking alcohol in moderation has shown to be good for your health in many medical studies. In addition, beer is full of B-complex vitamines. We hope you have enjoyed this presentation, and would join us in our journey. Thank You From We strive to produce top quality craft beer that Californians would be proud to call their own and to be enjoyed by all around the world. Barley
Barley malt is to beer as grapes are to wine. Barley used for beer brewing comes in 2-row and 6-row variety. Most craft brewers and european brewers prefer the 2-row barley Hops
Hops a minor ingredient in beer are used for their bitterness, flavoring and aroma-enhancing powers. Bitterness is measured in terms of International Bitternes Units (IBU). The higher the IBU, the more bitter a beer is. Yeast
Yeast is responsible for the metabolic conversion of starch into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Yeasts are catogorized as Ale Yeasts (top fermenting yeast) and Lager Yeast (bottom fermenting yeast) Ale or top fermenting yeast prefer a warmer temperature for the fermentation process, whereas Lager or bottom fermenting yeast prefer a colder environment. Water
More than 90% of beer is water. Therefore the mineral content of the brewing water makes a substantial contribution to the final flavor of the beer. Welcome to Beer 101
Presented by: Steeping
During steeping, barley kernels are exposed to water to increase moisture level until white tips of rootlets emerge. Germination
In the next step, the wet barley is allowed to germinate by keeping it at a suitable temperature and humidity level. Kilning
The final step is to dry the green malt in the kiln using different temperatue. The temperature in the kiln determines the color of the malt produced Our Beers SoCal Hollywood Red Carpet Ale
