Concise description of brewing technology in the brewery “Bierhof”
We fill the mashing brewing copper with specially treated water, then we add ready-made crushed malt. These components are mixed and stood in temperature intervals.
We pump over the derived mash in the filter vat and settle for some time. At the end of the operations we filtrate pure wort in the mashing brewing copper till fixed density.
Then wort is brought to boil in the copper and hop is added, boiling lasts some time. After that we pump over wort in the whirlpool, where sediments of hop settle.
We cool and oxygenate wort. Cooled wort is pumped over in the fermenter and we add brewing yeast in the wort stream.
As a result, we have young beer, it is pumped over in the storage tank till maturing of the beer.
Finished beer is transferred to the collecting tank and barreled.
Brewing (from crushed malt till finished beer for our guests) takes us more than a month.
