Depot Street Brewing Company
Depot Street Brewing is a 10 barrel system capable of brewing about 310
gal of beer at a time. Malts and grains are carefully selected to meet the
qualities necessary for a specific batch of quality beer. The grains are
placed in a hopper located above the grinding Mill. The grains are ground
and travel by a screw auger to the top of the Mash Tun. As they fall into
the tank a spray mist of water is applied to aid in wetting the grain. Heat
is applied by steam boiler and the temperature raised in steps. This process
is to free the enzymes in the grain to act upon the carbohydrates and
convert them into sugars. After the sugars are liberated water is sparged
(rinsed) through the grain bed in order to recover the maximum amount of
sugars. This fluid (now called wort) is transfered to another vessel, the
Brew Kettle. Also steam heated, this is where the wort is boiled and hops
added. The boiling is for many reasons. Among them killing stray organisms
and precipitating out various proteins in the wort. After whirlpooling the
wort is moved through a heat exchanger which cools it to about 70 degrees,
oxygen in injected into the stream, and the wort is piped cooled and
oxygenated into a Fermenter. Yeast are then added. They now have what we all
want-a nice temperature controlled home, lots to eat, oxygen to breathe, and
plenty of friends. The yeast convert the sugars to carbon dioxide and
alcohol as well as many flavor compounds. After about a week the food supply
is used up and most of the yeast go dormant, where they fall to the bottom
of the fermenter to be reused for the next batch. The beer is then
transfered to other Conditioning tanks for weeks or months where the flavor
matures and the beer is carbonated further. When flavor is at a peak the
beer is kegged and sold.
