The brewing process is where the art comes in. This is where the artist (i.e. the brewer) gets to work on their great creation, beer. Understanding the process is key to making great beer. It’s not hard to understand, you don’t need a degree from a fancy university or anything. What you need is patients to take a bit of time to get to know the key parts of the process and understand the ‘why’ in what is being done. When you understand the ‘why’ then you can understand how not to go wrong, or at least know how to correct it. Knowing the ‘why’ will allow you to reproduce that great brew, give consistency, and help when its time to experiment.
