OUR BREWING PROCESS

Step 1

First we dump different types of grain from all over the world into the mill. The mill crushes the grain and creates what’s called “grist.” The grist then gets pumped up the auger and dumped into our mash/lauter tun.

Step 2

Once the grist makes it to our mash/lauter tun, we fill it with hot liquor (treated water) from our hot liquor tank. This steeping process extracts sugars from the grist to be used in the fermentation process later. This sugar enriched hot liquor is called “wort.” The wort is moved into our boil kettle, and the spent grist is sparged (rinsed) with hot liquor to gather any residual sugars and fill the boil kettle. The grist is removed from the mash/lauter tun and is made available to local farmers as animal feed.

Step 3

We boil off any contaminants in the boil kettle while adding bittering hops and other adjuncts for aroma and flavor. This process takes roughly an hour. The wort is then sent through our heat exchanger.

Step 4

The heat exchanging process allows us to quickly cool down our beer so we can pump it into our fermenters.

Step 5

We have multiple fermenter tanks, capable of holding 10, 20, 30, and 40bbl (barrels). Yeast is added to the fermenter, and it consumes the sugar in the wort, producing alcohol. This process can take 10-14 days. The wort can now be called beer. When fermentation is complete, the beer is sent to the brite tank.

Step 6

The beer in the brite tank goes through a carbonation process, and upon completion is ready for packaging.

Step 7

Our beer is filled in cans and kegs, where they are then distributed around the state!
