Woooooo hoooooo! Are you ready to learn about the magical, transformative process that turns wort into BEER?! Because I am SO STOKED to tell you all about it!
So here’s how it works: First, the wort is cooled and transferred to a fermentation vessel. And then, get ready for the fun part: YEAST is added to the wort! This little guy (or girl!) is a microorganism that gobbles up sugars and turns them into ALCOHOL and CARBON DIOXIDE! Can you believe it?!
Now, as the yeast does its thing, the wort starts to heat up. So it’s important to keep the temperature at an optimal level for the yeast by cooling the fermentation vessel. This helps the yeast work its magic and turn the wort into delicious, delicious beer!
The length of the fermentation process can vary depending on the type of beer being made and the desired characteristics of the final product. But eventually, the beer is ready to be transferred to a secondary fermentation vessel, where it can age and clarify. And then, once it’s reached the perfect level of deliciousness, it’s ready to be bottled, kegged, or served on draft!
And that, my friends, is how wort becomes BEER! Isn’t it just the most amazing thing you’ve ever heard?! I am just SO EXCITED to be talking about it! Cheers!
Explain how wort becomes beer in a very jubilant, overly excited tone.
