Fermentation Riot All Grain Beer Brewing

Beer Brewing Malt and Grain Types

The following is a list of all the common malt (grain) types used in the brewing process. Malts supply the sugar needed which the yeast will convert to alcohol during fermentation. Just like with yeast, there are many different malted grains, wheats, and other adjuncts available to supply that sugar source. However, they are not all the same and can impart drastically different results to your final beer. This should help as a resource guide.

QUOTES:



Our lager, which art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink. Thy will be drunk, (I will be drunk), at home as it is in the pub. Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillages, as we forgive those who spill against us. And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer, the bitter, the lager. Forever and ever, barmen.
