The process of making beer
• Beginning in the brew house, different types of malt are crushed together to break up the grain kernels in order to extract fermentable sugars to produce a milled product called grist.
• The grist is transferred into a mash tun, where it is mixed with heated water in a process called mash conversion. The conversion process uses natural enzymes in the malt to break the malt’s starch down into sugars.
• The mash is then pumped into the lauter tun, where a sweet liquid (known as wort) is separated from the grain husks.
• After boiling, the wort is transferred into a whirlpool for the wort separation stage. During this stage, any malt or hop particles are removed to leave a liquid that is ready to be cooled and fermented.
• After fermentation, the young “green” beer needs to be matured, in order to allow full development of flavors and a smooth finish.
• After reaching its full potential, the beer is filtered, carbonated, and transferred to the bright beer tank, where it goes through a cellaring process that takes 3-4 weeks to complete. Once completed, the beer is ready to be packaged.
Although the beer brewing process is more or less the same everywhere, the only thing that might defer are the materials and technology each company uses. Arna Light is brewed using the best raw materials and the latest technology, thus ensuring the best beer in the market.
