As simple as its own ingredients, the grain-hops-yeast trifecta along with water are the big four ingredients for making beer. The beer-making process is known as brewing and involves several steps like milling, mashing, lautering, boiling, and fermentation.

Ingredients in the beer brewing process - How much do they matter?

Beer is the oldest man-made drink. Just think that its first evidence dates back to 13,000 years ago. It is made up of natural ingredients, water, grains, hops, and yeast through the brewing process. Each ingredient plays a key role. Water quality is very important when you brew because its mineral content can affect the flavor you get. The color of the beer depends on how long you toast or roast your grain. When toasting grain, beer has a caramel color, but if you roast it longer than usual, you will get a darker beer. Hops are important for providing bitterness and flavor; the yeast is to convert sugar into ethanol, which makes beer the alcoholic drink we all know and love. But which production steps are needed to make beer?

Beer-making equipment – What technology do you need?

Purifying water to remove chlorine and sulfur is the first step in brewing beer. By mixing water and grain you get a sugar liquid that brewers call wort. To create it, hot water is added to the grain to convert the grain starch into sugars in a vessel called the mash tun. The wort is moved to a brew kettle where it is brought to boil. Here, hops are added to balance the sweetness of the sugar liquid with some bitterness. They also give aroma and flavor to the beer.

After boiling, the wort is pumped through a heat exchanger to rapidly cool it to fermentation temperatures. In the fermentation vessel, which can be a horizontal tank or a conical fermenter, the yeast converts glucose into ethanol while releasing CO2. When the first stage of fermentation ends, yeast is added again to remove any remaining sugar (secondary fermentation). Before filling, beers are filtered through a centrifuge to remove any remaining substances.

From microbrewery equipment to industrial scale

Compared to industrial breweries that produce a large amount of beer annually, a microbrewery is a small, independent brewery that produces 15,000 beer barrels or less per year. To turn your passion for beer into your business, the first thing to look for is equipment. You will need a mashing system to mix hot water and grain so that the starch starts to convert to sugar (wort). If there is no sugar, there will be no alcohol. Next, you will need a lautering system and a brew kettle to boil the wort with the hops; a heat exchanger to cool the wort for fermentation, and last but not least a fermentation vessel where the yeast will convert the sugar to ethyl alcohol. Aside from production capacity, what sets microbrewery apart is the freedom to experiment with new flavors and production techniques.

Case packaging for carrying your branded beer packs

Case packaging can influence the choice of beer lovers. For this reason, great breakthroughs have been made in terms of packaging design. You can choose the colors, shapes, and sizes of your packaging according to your needs. The case packaging process usually takes place in a wraparound machine that loads a carton that wraps and shapes around the products to form a box. For easy transport, cartons usually are made with handles.
