Discover the production process of our craft beers.

the production process

grinding

There malt grinding it is one of the key steps in the production of beer, necessary to obtain the alcoholic drink. In fact, from the breaking of the ground grains it is possible to extract the starches from which to obtain the sugars, fundamental for the subsequent phases of beer production.

mashing

L’ mashing or mashing it is a process in which abundant hot water is added to a mixture of ground cereals, mostly barley malt, in fact, this first phase is also called: hydration of the grains. It is the process during which the extraction of sugars from the cereal takes place.

filtration

The long awaited time to open the taps has come! It is not about crying with emotion but about collect the filtered must . And don’t say it’s not all that glitters!

boiling

We talked about water at high temperatures but it is with the boiling that the peak of heat is reached: the must is brought to a boil and reaches the maximum temperature.

cooling down

During the cooling down specific equipment and great dexterity are required. In fact, lowering the temperature exposes the must to attack by bacteria. This is why a counter flow heat exchanger is needed to speed down the temperature and reduce the possibility of contamination.

fermentation

fermentation

It’s not beer if it’s not sparkling! The main characteristic of beer is given by the process of fermentation . It is the step that allows the maturation of the wort and the creation of the real foam, giving us the final appearance of the beer.

bottling

A magical moment: the bottling of beer! This is also a delicate phase that involves numerous steps as, depending on the style, the beer will have to be carbonated by reactivating the yeasts contained in it. It doesn’t stop there: after being bottled, the beer must remain in a place away from light sources and with a constant temperature.

enjoy it in company

It’s like reaching the finish line after running the Olympics: it’s time to taste the beer and you know that every achievement must be honored in company! Prosit!
