The characteristics of beer brewed by craft beer equipment in the use of hops. Hops is an important raw material in beer brewing. It has an important effect on the taste and flavor of the beer itself, as well as in anti-corrosion and other aspects. Today, WEMAC will introduce what hops are in craft beer brewing.


 Hops are the raw materials for brewing beer


Hops are also called yeast flowers and hops. The beer we drink every day is made from hops as a raw material, which gives the beer a refreshing aroma and a bit of bitterness. In beer brewing, different varieties of hops have specific aroma components, so that the aroma styles of the brewed beer are also different. 

According to data records, in 1079, the Germans in Europe began to add hops to brewing beer, which made the beer not only has a unique aromatic smell but also has a certain antiseptic effect. In the future, hops will become beer brewing. One of the indispensable raw materials. Just adding hops when brewing beer can make the beer have a unique aroma and bitterness, and can also balance the sweetness. Therefore, hops have become one of the favorite plants of brewers


 Hops make beer form delicate bubbles.


In the beer we usually drink, the richness and duration of the foam is also an important factor in judging the quality of the beer. In brewing beer, the combination of hops and malt, after the chemical interaction between humulones and foaming protein, The foam in beer is formed. High-quality hops can make beer appear as white and delicate foam like milk, and the foam hanging time is longer.


Hops play an irreplaceable role in beer brewing


1. It makes beer have fresh aroma, bitterness and antisepsis. The aroma of hops and malt endows beer with subtle flavor. Beer, coffee and tea all win with fragrance and bitterness, which is the charm of these drinks. Because hops have natural antiseptic power, there is no need to add toxic preservatives to beer.

2, The formation of excellent beer foam. Beer froth is a compound of isozin and hopper protein from malt. Good hops and malt can produce white, fine, rich and long lasting beer foam.

3. It is beneficial to the clarification of wort. In the process of wort boiling, due to the addition of hops, the protein in wort can be separated out, which plays a role in clarifying wort and brewing pure beer.

In addition to the above points, hops itself has certain medicinal value. Scientific research shows that it also has a certain promoting effect on people's stomach and intestines. If the stomach has slight indigestion, you can choose to eat hops for the stomach. Conditioning, so that the intestines and stomach become more comfortable. And the hop oil contained in it also has a certain soothing and diuretic effect.

 

In China, it is expected that relevant regulations, policies and industry standards for craft beer will be formulated soon. Therefore, it is expected that the number of small and medium-sized craft beer factories will rapidly increase in the future to meet market demand, which will also usher in the development of the entire craft beer industry A major opportunity.

The Role of Yeast in Brewing

The Role of Yeast in Brewing
The fascinating microscopic organism that is yeast provides a tremendous impact on beer and brewing. Yeast plays a key role in creating the distinctive aroma and flavor components that make up an impressive variety of beer styles. Without the metabolism of yeast cells, the traditional production of alcoholic beverages would not be possible.

Yeasts are single-celled organisms with a nucleus that belong to the fungus kingdom. Unlike plant cells, yeast requires no sunlight, and the organism has been the catalyst used in baking and the creation of alcoholic beverages for thousands of years. During fermentation, the primary beer yeast species, known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, produces energy for its cellular metabolism by converting certain sugars into carbon dioxide, alcohols and fermentation by-products.


Brewers in the middle ages had no idea about the presence of yeast and the role it plays in beer production. These rustic brewers would often stir a new vat of wort with a "magic" wooden paddle inoculated with yeast cells from previous batches. Fermentation would kick in within a few hours. Thankfully, modern brewers possess an intimate scientific knowledge of yeast types, metabolism, reproduction and flavor-production characteristics.

Basically, two types of brewing yeast exist – classified originally on whether fermentation takes place at the top of the fermenter or near the bottom. Beer yeast that prefers warmer temperatures and working near the top of the fermenter is known as "ale" yeast. Bavarian wheat beer yeast is also classified as a type of ale yeast. "Lager" yeast likes to hang out at the bottom of the fermenter and thrives in colder temperatures.

Ale yeast strains ferment best at temperatures in the range of 60 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. They are quite diverse in metabolism and in the production of fruity, spicy aroma and flavor compounds imparted to the finished beer. Think of a traditional English brewery using ale yeast in open fermentation vats at a rather cool ambient temperature. The beer ferments in just a few days, and the resulting English bitter style offers elegant notes of dried fruit, stone fruit and perhaps just a hint of butterscotch - all of which are fermentation by-products from the ale yeast.

Ale yeast has a knack for excreting ester chemicals that can be perceived as various fruit notes. Being greatly influenced by temperature, ale yeast can experience a four-fold increase in ester production as a result of increasing fermentation temperature from 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Ales fermented at extremely warm temperatures will often exhibit intense fruitiness.

If you want to make craft beer, you don't know the sales volume at the beginning, and you don't want to invest too much. Is the saccharification system an all-in-one machine or a split one? The all-in-one machine is cheap and covers a small area, so it is especially suitable for those who have just started. But I heard that the saccharification machine is not as easy to use as the split machine. I don't know how to choose. No matter which type of beer equipment is suitable, it is the best. It mainly depends on the daily output, what kind of beer to brew, the general budget, and the size of the venue to recommend the most suitable beer equipment.

What are the differences between craft  beer and ordinary industrial beer?
What are the differences between craft beer and ordinary industrial beer?

With the improvement of living standards, people have higher and higher requirements for the taste of beer. There are many flavors of craft beer, including sweet, sour, tea, fruit, and even salty and fresh, which can meet your taste buds. The reason why craft beer is increasingly coming into people's view is not only related to the upgrading of people's consumption demand, but also closely related to the current trend of high-end beer. Fang Gang, a beer marketing expert, believes that the improvement of consumption level has not only spawned high-end and diversified consumption demand, but also achieved the survival soil of refined beer. When the taste of mainstream beer tends to be insipid and the trend of low degree makes people tired of tasteless beer, some consumers will come into contact with different kinds of beer. Another manifestation of consumer demand is the increasingly obvious trend of high-end beer. Compared with ordinary beer, craft beer is more expensive, so it also benefits from the trend of high-end beer and becomes the choice of more people.
