The brewing process is:
  • Mashing where the malt is mixed with water and raised to ca. 65 degrees C. During the mashing sugar is extracted from the malt.
  • "straining" where the water and the malt is separated. This is done in a "lauter tun".
  • The water with the sugars extracted from the malt is called worth. The worth is boiled and during the boil hops are added to give taste and bitternes.
  • The beer is fermented and stored in large tanks. Beechwood is added for extra flavour.
