The Magic of the Brewhouse (part 1)

This is where the magic starts (well technically it starts in a field of barley, but this is where the best bits happen). You see what I often have to explain to people outside of brewing is, that brewing a batch of beer is allot like making love to a beautiful woman. So this week I bring you some brewing porn, straight from the heart of Daleside brewery. This footage was taken from a brew of the latest seasonal beer Spring Frenzy. Here we see Craig dramatically unloading his grist case (scene 1) then sparge his mash (scene 2), making it nice and hot to maximise that lovely extract. All essential parts of the brewing process, all part of the magic.

Scene 1. Mashing in.

Scene 2. Sparging the mash.
