The making of beer has become a popular hobby and many people now brew beer in their homes. In addition, knowing the modern process of beer making will help you appreciate how beer making has evolved in the many thousands of years since its origin. However, beer making has become very sophisticated because of the advances in knowledge that has resulted from advances in science.
We need to take a closer look at yeast. I’m sure everyone has heard of yeast: microscopic fungi that help bread rise and cause irritating infections in women. In reality, there are around 1,500 characterized species of yeast, but the members of only one genus are responsible for the vast majority of alcohol fermentation.
Early humans ate these foods or drank beverages made from the fermented foods, noticed the changes the fermentation products imparted to them and began fermenting foods intentionally.
Alcohol producers today completely wipe out the natural yeasts found on the starting plant materials and add in their own carefully chosen yeast, guaranteeing the best possible yield.
