Title: Unlocking Beer HRT 315

Unlocking Beer HRT 315
  • The basics of ales and lagers,
  • from a home-brewing perspective

One of my key goals today is…
  • To have each of you reexamine your perception
    about beer and beer consumers
  • Why? It depends…

For Hospitality Majors…
  • Some of your guests are beer drinkers
  • Some guests truly appreciate fine ales and lagers
  • You may be asked your opinion
  • By a guest
  • By someone revising a beverage list
  • Beer might be in a recipe

For Everyone Here Today…
  • This course is an example of life-long learning
  • Beer is fun!
  • Brewers are serious about the craft
  • Yet they are a humorous bunch
  • Beer pairs well with food
  • It is less cost-prohibitive to experiment

In Our Time Together…
  • Introduction
  • Four ingredients and the role of each
  • Color and flavor
  • The Family Tree
  • Look, smell, taste
  • Eight Samples
  • Final thoughts

  • 5 minutes

By the End of the Day, You May…
  • Have New Knowledge
  • About the four basic ingredients used to brew
  • The difference between ale styles and lager
  • That there are many styles - most quite
    different than the common light lager you see in
    commercials and on billboards

By the End of the Day, You May…
  • Gain New Skills
  • You may have a new picture in your mind of what
    the raw products look like
  • You many know how some of the products feel in
    the raw state
  • You may know how some of the raw products smell
  • You may know how some of the raw products taste
  • You may see, smell, and taste beer samples in a
    range of color and flavor

By the End of the Day, You May…
  • Change or Modify Your Attitude
  • What is your current perception of beer?
  • What is your current perception of beer drinking?
  • What is your current perception of a beer
  • At the end of the day, do you
  • Have new perceptions?
  • Have a new appreciation of beer (even if you
    still do not like it!)

What you know already…
  • Fermentation
  • Aroma and bouquet
  • How to taste wine
  • How wine is made
  • Similarities between beer and wine
  • How is brewing beer different?

The Four Basic Ingredients
  • Water
  • Grain (usually barley)
  • Yeast (two main types)
  • Hops (many varieties)

  • Well over 90 of the beers volume
  • If it tastes good, it is good for brewing
  • Natural spring water, artesian well water, or
    treated water (reverse osmosis)
  • In treated water, minerals (like calcium, sodium,
    chloride, magnesium) are added back
  • To affect taste positively
  • To match classic styles

Malted Grain
  • Usually barley, but can be any grain
  • 2-row, 4-row or 6-row barley
  • 2-row is preferred, due to higher starch/husk
    ratio it malts better
  • Malting is a process moving the grain to the
    highest possible soluble starch content
  • A natural enzyme converts starch to maltose
  • Process is controlled with heat and moisture

The Contributions of Grain…
  • Primary role is food source for the yeast
  • Unmalted grain can be roasted from light to
    very dark this addition adds color and flavor
    to beer
  • Sugars in malted barley can also be crystallized
    this addition adds sweetness to the beer
  • Grain contributes sweetness to beer

  • Convert sugar from malted grain into alcohol and
    CO2 this is fermentation
  • Two broad categories Ale Lager
  • Ale yeast 60oF - 75oF / 1-2 weeks
  • Lager yeast 32oF - 75oF / 3 weeks
  • Wild yeast is used for some styles

  • Green, cone-like flowers from a vine
  • Hops impart bitterness to beer
  • Generally the bitterness is to counter the
    sweetness of the grain
  • Also
  • Hops inhibit spoilage
  • Hops enhance head retention
  • Hops affect flavor and floral bouquet of beer
  • Boiling hops, finishing hops, dry-hopping

Look, Smell, Taste
  • Extract of Malted Barley

  • Roasted Malt (Black Patent)
  • Hops pelletized (Cascade)
