Would you like to know more about the brewing process? The brewing process is a series of steps that result in beer. It starts with malted barley and ends with carbonated, alcoholic beer.
There are four main ingredients used to make beer: water, malt, hops and yeast. Each ingredient has its own role during the production process. Water makes up more than 90 percent of beer by volume and provides most of its flavor and color as well as some minerals like calcium sulfate (gypsum) for hardness and magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt) for sweetness. Malt gives your brew sugars that yeast will eat to produce alcohol while hops add bitterness to balance out the malt’s sweetness along with other flavors such as piney or citrusy notes depending on which variety you use. Yeast ferments these sugars into alcohol then settles at the bottom of your fermenter when it’s done working its magic!
