The Brewing Process


Malt Silo

The malt - naturally germinated barley – delivered to us is stored in silos. A distinction is made between pale and dark malt.


Hammermill

The malt is reduced to small pieces to obtain its valuable ingredients, such as e.g. malt starch.


Mash Tun

The crushed malt is mixed with the finest brewing water from our own springs. Most of the malt starch is transformed into malt sugar by the malt’s own enzymes. The special temperature range between 62°C and 72°C is maintained for this process. In filtration, the liquid elements are separated from the solids. The liquid elements – known as wort – undergo further processing. We pass the so-called draff, or solid elements, onto farmers as nutritious animal feed.


Whirlpool Kettle

The wort is now mixed with fine Hallertauer hops and boiled. Hops lend the beer its fine bitterness and typical hoppy aroma.


Wort Cooler

The boiled wort is cooled down to 10 °C for its subsequent fermentation.


Yeast Tank

We use beer yeast cultivated for fermentation – bottom-fermenting or top-fermenting depending on the type of brew.


Fermenting and Maturing Tank

The malt sugar, mostly contained in the wort, is now fermented by the yeast to alcohol and carbon dioxide within a week. After this the beer goes through a maturation period.


Filtration

This gives the beer its fine pale appearance.


Bottle Filling

The bottles first undergo thorough cleaning and are then checked by an inspector. Afterwards, the bottles are filled and provided with caps.
