People have been drinking beer for thousands of years now. What started as a thick, chunky meal is now a much more elegant drinking beverage. The process that is used to produce beers now is nowhere similar to that which was used by the cavemen thousands of years ago. Even so, brewers and brewhouses such as Brisbane Brewhouse are looking for a newer and simpler method to produce beer and improve its quality. Bright beer is one such creation which is refined to a degree where the yeast particles are not suspended. Let us see how Monkey Tree, a Brisbane Brewhouse, brews the bright beers.
How is Beer Made?
This Brisbane brewhouse brews beers in small quantities of 50L so that they can craft every single drop of it to the outermost quality. All the ingredients which are used for making the beer are organic and locally grown. This ensures that the taste of the beer is a hundred percent genuine and unobstructed. Bright beer is made fresh without pasteurization or adding preservative on chemicals.
After the initial stage of making the wort is over, it is cooled down to 18 degrees where the yeast is introduced into the mixture. It is then allowed to ferment in a climate controlled space for 10 days following which the process of production of alcohol is complete.
Once it is done it is cold filtered at 0.5 degree Celsius and then passed through three parts of a filtration process. This filtration process allows the yeast particles to be separated from the beer. Thus, making it a ‘Bright Beer’.
