malt house

Brewing beer has to start with the malt. Malt is made in the malt house by germinating grain. After this procedure the grain is dried, scraped and the whole mixture is put into the mash tun/kettle.

kettle

The kettle is the metaphorical heart of the brewery. In the first faze the malt is mixed with water at the temperature of 35 degrees Celsius and slowly heated.

mash tun

A part of this solution (called mashout) is pumped over into the bottom part of the mash tun (an insulated brewing vessel with a false bottom) where the heating starts at a constant temperature of 63 to 73 degrees Celsius so the enzymes are deactivated.
Next the whole brew is pumped over into a "lauter tun" where the grains are separated from the sweet wort (called lautering). Then the sweet wort is pumped into another vessel where it is boiled for about an hour at the temperature of 100 degrees Celsius. After adding hops we get hop wort...

heat exchanger

Which then travels into a heat exchanger, where it's cooled to a temprature when yeast can be added safly, (10 degrees) after that the hop wort is pumped into fermentation tanks.
Here the main fermenting process comes to order. Brewing yeast is added into opened tanks and it lets the beer ferment for 8-12 days at 7-10 degrees. Draft beers lie in the fermentation tanks for about 10 days, lager 12 days. The main part of alcohol is created during this process.
