There are four key ingredients when it comes to making quality beer – water, malted barley, hops and yeast. Other items can be added along the way to help enhance or impart other desired flavours in a beer, but these core ingredients are all as important as one another when it comes to brewing.
Soft Yorkshire water provides the ideal start to our process, as it contains very few salts, which allows us to treat it according to the style of beer we want to brew. The addition of various salts to the water varies and plays an important part in how a beer tastes.
Malted barley is primarily used to obtain the sugars that are eventually converted into alcohol during fermentation, but, depending on how long it’s been roasted for at the Maltsters, it can also impart a plethora of other flavours and colours that help to shape the style of beer being brewed.
