Slide 1 Beer 101 Understanding the Diversity of Beer Slide 2 What is Beer? Beer is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of cereal grains with yeast Slide 3 Ingredients W ater H ops Y east M alts/Adjuncts E xtras Slide 4 Water Water is 90% of Beer Breaks down malts and exposes starches and sugar Slide 5 Hops Humulus Lupulus (hops) are the flowering cone of a perennial vining plant and a cousin of the cannabis variety (sorry no THC in this stuff) that typically thrives in climates similar to the ones that grapes do. Hop plants are dioecious, meaning the males and females flower on separate plants -- and the female cones are used in the brewing process. Hops are the age old seasoning of the beer, the liquid gargoyles who ward-off spoilage from wild bacteria and bringers of balance to sweet malts. They also lend a hand in head retention, help to clear beer (acting as a natural filter) and please the palate by imparting their unique characters and flavours. Basically, hops put the "bitter" in beer. Slide 6 Malts/Adjuncts Malts/Adjucts provide the fermentable sugars that are required to make beer (and to make beer "sweet"). The process of malting converts insoluble starch to soluble starch, reduces complex proteins, generates nutrients for yeast development, and develops enzymes. Slide 7 Extras Other ingredients that add flavor and/or fermentable sugars that do not come from malt Slide 8 Yeast Single celled organisms that are responsible for converting starch and sugar into alcohol and CO2 Slide 9 Ale Yeast vs. Lager Yeast Ale Yeast Top Fermenting (yeast ferments at the top) Ferment at Higher Temps Adds Fruity/Ester Flavors Lager Yeast Bottom Fermenting (yeast ferments at bottom) Ferment at Lower Temps Adds Crisp Clean Flavors Slide 10 Making Beer Mashing Brewing Fermenting Aging Packaging Slide 11 Beer Styles Ales Lagers All Styles are either Ales or Lagers Beer Styles branch into hundreds of varieties from there Slide 12 Slide 13 Enjoying Beer 5 Tasting Steps -Appearance -Aroma -Taste -Mouthfeel -Finish Slide 14 Slide 15 Enjoy!
