Brewing Science and Technology

Brewing of beer includes natural raw materials: water, malt, adjuncts, hops and yeast.

The process steps for production of the beer includes milling of malt, mashing, lautering, boiling of the wort, separation of trub, cooling, aeration, fermentation, maturation, stabilisation, filtration, gravity adjustment, carbonation and packaging into a container. The Brewing Science and Technology research group aims to understand the influence of the raw materials as well as the individual process steps on the quality of the final beer. Furthermore, the aim is to understand how we can influence the final quality and make beer in a sustainable way.
