The Brew Platform: Creating Wort

The Brewing Platform: Creating Wort

The brewery platform contains many of the instruments in which our artisans at Human Village Brewing Co use to create their masterpieces. Our brew platform is fully electric, allowing for a variety of advantages.

Mash Tun:

Purified water is introduced into the Mash Tun along with the grains that were previously crushed in the Mill. This Mash Tun is responsible for converting starches into the sugars profile we've designed for the specific brew. Precise control over time and temperature during this process ensure the proper sugars are extracted. The sugar is then collected by rinsing the grains with more pure water. The collected sugar is called wort.

Boil Kettle:

The wort is transferred into the boil kettle where it is brought to a boil. A variety of ingredients, such as hops, spices and herbs, are added to further define the unique brew being created. After the boil is complete the wort is cooled and ready for the yeast to begin fermenting.

A Barkday Cake with Spent Grains

Sustainability may be a new buzzword, but for most of human history it was how we lived! Everything had a purpose and a repurpose and maybe a few uses after that. Historically, breweries were located in the village near bakeries to facilitate the natural progression of beer grains becoming whole germ peasant breads. Spent grains are also a fantastic, all natural animal feed. Beer grain is loaded with nutrition! Proteins, enzymes, and fiber remains after the brewing process extracts fermentable sugars. 

Lola the Derp (who is most definitely not the Akita Inu dog the shelter said she was, we think lab/beagle/pug thing) is turning 5 today!! We used spent beer grains, dried and milled, to make her a birthday cake fit for the awesome friend she is.

Lola's Barkday Cake

1 c natural peanut butter with oil
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 eggs
1/3c honey
1 tsp vanilla (why not!)
1 1/3 c shredded carrots (4-5 large)
2 c spent beer grains
2 tsp baking soda
 

Combine all ingredients and spread in a tube pan. Bake 40 minutes. Cake should be slightly oily, dense and chewy– Perfect for a pup! Oils help the coat, while the recipe provides delicious proteins, fiber, and nutrients in a sweet treat.
