The General Brewing Process
Select type of malt and process through the mill where it is cracked.
Malt goes into mash tun, which is mixed with hot water and then converts the starches into sugars.
The sweet wort is transferred to the kettle, which is then brought a boil for a period of one hour. At this point, the hops are added for the bittering, flavoring, and aroma.

The hot wort is run through a heat exchanger to rapidly cool.
The cooled wort is transferred to a waiting fermenter where the yeast is added and ferments for seven to 10 days.
After five to seven days, the temperature is reduced to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows the yeast to settle, a process known as flocking.
The temperature is reduced to 34 degrees Fahrenheit and what is now your beer-in-waiting settles.
Ten to 14 days later, the beer is filtered and transferred to a severing tank, where it is carbonated.
The best step of all. Your beer is ready to drink!
