What's Beer Made Of?
Although all the ingredients are necessary for the brewing process, the malt is used in larger quantities. Our Brewmaster's use malted barley and other specialty malts, depending on the type of beer being brewed. The alcohol from the beer derives from the fermentation of sugars contained in the malt.
Hops are another fundamental ingredient in beer. Although it is used in smaller quantities compared to malt, it is the main element that provides flavour to the beer. The typical bitterness of the beer comes directly from the essential oil of the hop flower.
Water, gives the beer its liquid consistency; without water, beer is nothing more than bread! It takes time to filter the water before using it to remove any impurities which could affect the taste.
Yeast is used at the end of the brewing process. At Cecil's, we use only ale yeast in the brewing process of our beer.
