How we create a beer ready for our customers

Written by 14K Brewery on August 20, 2016

Basically we follow this process using our experience and market demand for a specific style of beer.

An important part of the process is to create good recopies for good quality beers. We are developing ours using a 50L Braumeister. Grinding the malted Barley, adding the grist to the mash, sparg, lauter, then add your hop combinations to the boiling stage of the brew. Cooling and transfering the wort into the fermenter ready to pitch good quality yeast. Temperature in the fermentation process is critical to obtain a clean consistent flavor profile. Once we are happy with the brew, we will then repeat this through the main 10hL brewhouse. To create the final product to serve, takes a lot of time, but it’s worth the effort.
