During the process of brewing, the overall time for making beer may be influenced by various setups in the brewhouse. If the brewhouse is equipped with a grain rake, warm alcohol container, and so on, this is specifically related to the brewing process.
Regardless of the setup, the primary brewing process remains the same. It involves mashing, lautering, boiling, and whirlpooling. So, what are the different time requirements for each step?
When the mash temperature reaches approximately 35°C to 65°C, we need to mash for more than 1-2 hours and raise the temperature to about 78°C before starting to filter the wort.
The filtering process takes about 1 hour.
The boiling process takes about 1-2 hours (usually around 70-90 minutes).
After boiling is complete, the whirlpooling time takes about 1 hour.
If we include tasks such as preparing the malt and transporting the wort, a total of 2 hours is generally sufficient. The entire mashing process requires about 6-8 hours per batch.
