1. Whole malted barley is portioned and then milled to the proper granular consistency. Milling cracks the grains and makes it easier to extract sugars for the yeast.
2. The milled grain, alongside clean water, gets sent to the mash tun.
3. Here the grain will steep in hot water so we may extract the soluble goodness (sugar). We then separate the the grains and we are left with a sugary liquid called wort.
3.5 We recycle the spent grains by collecting them in container and sending them off to a local farmer for animal feed
4. The wort is sent over to the kettle to begin brewing, then boiled to eliminate unwanted elements. During the boil, hops are added to contribute bitterness, flavor, and aroma.
5. The boiling hot wort is then cooled to an ideal fermentation temperature.
6. Based upon the style of beer we brew, the appropriate strain of brewers yeast is added to the cooled wort. Here is where beer is truly made. The yeast breaks down the malt sugars to produce alcohol and CO2, helping give the beer it's familiar characteristics and flavor development.
7. The beer is then sent to a bright tank to mature. It will stay here and mellow out for a number of days to number of weeks (depending on the beer style) to achieve optimum taste and ideal level of conditioning.
8. The finished beer is then directed to kegs for in-house and outside-the-brewery consumption.
