Sample text

The final cooled temperature will depend on the type of yeast being used and, to a certain extent, the style of beer being brewed. Perhaps more important than the exact final temperature is the speed at which we cool the liquid, since it is directly related to certain off flavors. Fast cooling also helps remove cloudiness from beer. A number of quick cooling techniques have been developed over the years to get the hot boiling water down to a pitching temperature as fast as possible. After cooling, the homebrewer transfers the liquid concoction to a fermenter.

Microbreweries and brewpubs are actually trying to isolate top-fermenting strains that settle to the bottom of fermentation vessels at the end of fermentation, thereby producing clear beer with less work. Temperature constraints are also easing. 8°C). So the neat categories that homebrewers have developed for yeast, while still intact, are starting to fray at the edges. About the only definite way to tell a lager yeast from an ale yeast is the raffinose test. As discussed on pages 30 to 31, processing of the sugar raffinose is not a major part of fermentation, but it is a nice, exact biochemical test for the type of yeast you have.

Low–Molecular Weight Proteins and Individual Amino Acids: Provide nutrients for yeast. Contribute some to protein taste. The Contribution of Lipids Lipids, for the purposes of this discussion, are fatlike molecules that come from three sources: malt, oxidized hops, and yeast metabolism. The wort trub (pronounced troob)—that whitish stuff that collects on the bottom of your fermenter—can consist of as much as fifty percent lipids. Cloudy wort contains from five to forty times the lipid content of clear wort.
