Disclosure of beer equipment manufacturers: the difference between industrial beer and fine beer
Beer is the oldest alcoholic beverage in human beings and ranks second in consumption in the world after tea. Beer was introduced into China in the early 20th century and is a foreign wine. Beer is translated into Chinese according to English Beer, which is called 'Beer' and is still in use today. Beer is a low-alcohol wine full of carbon dioxide brewed by yeast fermentation with malt, hops and water as the main raw materials. How to simply distinguish brewed beer from industrial beer? The first difference is that different raw materials are used to brew fine beer with malt, hops, yeast and water without adding any artificial additives. The quality requirements of brewed beer are very strict in material selection. Most of the brewing time does not consider the cost, and the variety selection is flexible and changeable, and it can constantly break the routine, try the match between different raw materials and beer. In order to pursue cost, industrial beer uses more raw materials such as rice, corn and starch to replace malt, or directly uses syrup to reach the set sugar content of wort. The second difference is that the output is different. Brewed beer limits the annual output and pursues the flavor and personality of beer. Industrial beer, large output, industrial production. The third difference is that the formula is different. The brewed beer has various formulas, and the barley malt and malt with different baking degrees are combined with a wide variety of hops and yeast to brew beer with various flavors. There are wheat beer, heavy black beer, Amber beer and fruit beer with strong aroma. There are nearly 100 styles of fine brewed beer in the world according to their types. The fourth difference is that the fermentation process is different. The fermentation process of refined beer and industrial beer is also different. Usually, refined beer uses the Al process (Ales, upper fermentation process), Industrial beer uses the lager process (Large, under the fermentation process) The main difference between the two is that the location of yeast in the fermentation process and the fermentation temperature are different. As shown in the figure: brewed beer: mostly Al process, yeast works at the top of the fermentation tank, floats above the liquor, and the fermentation temperature is generally controlled at 10-20℃. Fermenters are usually small and do not undergo filtration and sterilization after fermentation. Industrial beer: mostly lager process, yeast works at the bottom of the fermentation tank, sinks below the liquor, and the fermentation temperature is generally controlled below 10 °c. The fermentation tank is large, and filtration and pasteurization are usually used after fermentation to increase the shelf life of beer. The fifth difference is that the fermentation time is different. In addition to the difference in fermentation technology, the fermentation time of brewed beer and industrial beer is also very different. Brewed beer: because you don't need to care too much about the cost, the fermentation time is often not particularly valued, and the time cost is not considered too much. The fermentation time of the most traditional brewed beer can be as long as 2 months, so that the beer is fully fermented, the wort concentration is higher, and the flavor is more intense. Industrial beer: for industrial beer, time is money, so the fermentation time of industrial beer is usually only about 7 days, so the fermentation will not be particularly sufficient, resulting in low wort concentration, the flavor is also lighter. Six differences, flavor and taste are different, because the raw materials and production technology are different from industrial beer, so the flavor and taste of brewed beer are more abundant. Some are mellow, some are full of floral and fruity fragrance, some are full of caramel flavor, and some are as bitter as coffee ,. . . . . . The untold taste can be presented in beer. Everyone can find a favorite beer. Industrial beer tastes relatively simple and can basically be collectively referred to as 'water beer '. Difference seven, different nutritional value brewed beer: brewed beer has rich aroma, high content of wort, thick and full taste, higher nutritional value. Is the real meaning of 'liquid bread '. Industrial beer: in order to unify the taste of the finished product, the brewing process and style of industrial beer are usually single, and the fermentation time is extremely short, therefore, industrial beer has the characteristics of light taste, more bubbles, low wort concentration, less hops content and low alcohol content, and almost no nutritional value. The difference is that the preservation time is different. Brewed beer: most brewed beer is not filtered and sterilized. Therefore, brewed beer cannot be preserved for a long time. Most brewed beer has a short shelf life, and some have a shelf life of only a few days, a few days. Industrial beer: industrial beer is often filtered and pasteurized at the later stage of fermentation, with a long shelf life. The shelf life of general industrial beer is 1-2 years, some even can reach decades. Difference nine, drinking different brewed beer: usually the taste is rich and heavy, and the alcohol content is high. Different styles of beer can be matched with different meals. There are suitable varieties for both drinking and drinking. Industrial beer: usually with light taste and low alcohol content, it is suitable for drinking. It is called carbonated beverage with hops flavor by the fine brewing industry. Through the comparison, it seems that the small partners may understand that the brewed beer will crush the industrial beer from any aspect.
