Over 40 thousand sorts of beer existing in the world are made of 4 ingredients which are always the same such as malted barley, hop, water and yeast but still have different tastes. How should all the components be mixed to get nice and good beer? It is a secret and we’ll be told it today.

Heineken brewery in Siberia has been part of HEINEKEN company in Russia since 2004. The factory was built in 2003 and equipped with the most modern German appliances. The factory produces 8 types of beer.

It all starts with the malted barley. At Heiniken they use only natural ingredients. The first stage includes brewing that helps to obtain barley.

Then they crush the barley to get husk, grist and flour. This is where barley and malt are stored.

Malt crushing.

Wart preparation consists of 4 stages such as mashing, filtration, boiling and clarification with cooling.

Mashing is followed by filtration.

At this stage the wort must be transparent. The more transparent it is the better the beer will be. After clarification the wort is boiled for 60-120 minutes and added to the hop.

After boiling the wort is clarified and cooled.

    This shows very well, how crappy most of today’s food and drinks are: “it takes around 14 days to make a beer”. Right, 14 days for a super-fast-piece-of-crap fermentation. Think about the fact, that this process should take several weeks to make a good beer. Just like in the old days – but now, everything is run by more money, higher income etc. I cannot drink this piss from the big and well known breweries like Carlsberg and Heineken… it’s a chemical mixture not a good beer ;)

      You said “this process should take several weeks to make good beer” 14 days IS a couple of weeks you tool

    Wait, where are the skunks? I know Heineken employs a secret army of skunks who impart their scent on the beer right before the caps go on!

    Here in Canada they make the beer with 5 Ingredients. 95% tax goes in First.
    Oh, & the skunks are the ones setting the prices.

    Remember, even the phrase “all natural” means nothing! Since all products are made up of chemicals refined from nature, EVERYTHING is “all natural” (yes, even petroleum is natural).

      Amen to that, I’m fed up with people thinking all natural things are good and everything made by man is bad. Also reminds me of a bunch of people who trolled folk by saying they should ban dihydrogen monoxide….
