It’s no secret that beer is one of the most popular drinks in the world. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come without a price. The process of making beer can be long and complex, but here are some helpful tips to give you an idea of how your favorite drink is made!
The first step starts with malted barley which has been soaked in water for days. This activates enzymes that break down starch into sugars (which will later provide energy for yeast). The mixture is then heated until all of the water evaporates – this creates wort (a sweet liquid containing maltose sugars). Yeast is mixed with wort where it consumes sugar and produces alcohol as well as carbon dioxide gas bubbles, leaving behind a tasty brew!
