    The brewing process of beer equipment is roughly divided into the following steps: malting, saccharification, fermentation, and packaging.

    With the update of beer equipment technology, modern beer production no longer has a separate malt workshop, so the malting part will also be gradually stripped from the beer production process.

    1. Crushing of beer raw materials


    We use the auxiliary crusher of the beer equipment to crush the prepared malt. The purpose of crushing the raw materials is to increase the surface area of ​​the raw materials. The soluble substances are easy to overflow, which is conducive to the chemical action of enzymes, and the crushing can further decompose the insoluble substances of the malt.

    2. Saccharification process


    Saccharification is mainly to produce wort, and the hydrolase in the malt is used to decompose the high intolerant macromolecular substances in the malt into soluble substances.

    Maltose process

    (1) Filtration of wort

    The intolerant grains and raw material liquid are separated in the saccharification process to obtain clarified wort.

    (2) Boiling of wort

    The boiling of wort is mainly to stabilize the composition of wort, wort sterilization, protein denaturation, precipitation of solid substances, passivation of enzymes, etc.

    (3) Add hops and yeast during the boiling of wort

    The main functions of hops are: natural preservatives, balanced taste (the bitterness contained in hops can balance the natural sweetness of wort, and at the same time make the aftertaste of beer fresh and refreshing), form foam, and clarify wort.

    (4) Cooling of wort

    Mainly use the auxiliary refrigerator of beer equipment to quickly cool the wort, reduce the temperature of the wort, make it suitable for yeast fermentation, separate out and separate the cold and hot solids in the wort, and improve the quality of brewed beer. , to improve the conditions of beer fermentation.

    3. Fermentation process

    Mainly, the wort is introduced into the fermentation tank for further fermentation, the temperature is controlled, and the yeast is in the best physiological state. During this process, the yeast converts maltose into carbon dioxide and alcohol. Fermentation takes place over eight hours at an accelerated rate, accumulating a dense foam called ‘wrinkle’. After the yeast has fermented all the fermentable material in the wort, it begins to form a thick sediment at the bottom of the vessel. As the temperature gradually decreased, the fermentation was completely finished after 8 to 10 days. During the whole process, strict control of temperature and pressure is required. Of course, different beers and different production processes lead to different fermentation times. Typically, the fermentation process takes about 6 days for lager beer and about 5 days for pale lager. After fermentation, most of the yeast settles at the bottom of the tank. The brewers recycle this part of the yeast for use in the next pot.

    4.the packaging process


    (1) Bottling and canning machine: The brewed beer is first loaded into beer bottles or cans. Then, after strict inspections such as visual inspection and liquid inspection machines, they are loaded into beer boxes and shipped out.

    (2) Bottle washing machine: wash the recycled beer bottles.

    (3) Empty bottle inspection machine: extremely small scars will not be spared.
