The Chemistry of Beer Feat. Sam Adams Brewmaster Grant Wood

- in Beer Brewing Process

Everyone knows that chemistry and beer go hand in hand, but can you guess what hops, barley, and Louis Pasteur have in common?

Grant Wood, the Senior Brew Master at Boston’s Sam Adams brewery takes us on a quick tour of their world famous facility and gives a chemical explanation of the traditional four vessel beer brewing process. It’s about time all you home brewers out there get up to speed on your chemistry!

[Note: At Sam Adams’ Boston location, the mash tun is used as a substitute for the
brew kettle because of the small size of the brewery.]

  15. Hey everybody if your from the East Coast (especially Jersey area) I have great news! Some friends of mine are starting their own brewing company, called Bulkhead Brewing Company, that will have beer to challenge the best!

Just type in Bulkhead Brewing to find them, you wont regret it!
