Contents

  • Ingredients of beer and their production (malt / starch, hops, water)
  • Measured variables of brewery technology
  • Beer varieties, their history and influence on the culture
  • Enzymatic processes during mashing
  • Microbial processes during fermentation
  • Insight into the process engineering of modern breweries
  • Calculation bases in the brewing industry
  • Practical demonstration of a brewery entrance at the 100 L brewing plant
  • Independent execution of the basic operations
  • Analysis methods of (intermediate) products and preparation of mass balances

Competencies / intended learning achievements

1. lecture

The students are able to

  • to describe the food ingredients of fermented beverages and their production
  • to show the connections between the different regional beer varieties and their influence on the culture
  • to reproduce the microbial and enzymatic reaction paths and the catalysts involved
  • explain the basic brewing process operations
  • assign analytical methods in brewery technology and evaluate their results
  • to assess the negative and positive influences of the cultural drink beer

2. exercise

The students are able to

  • to estimate the influence of the ingredients of beer and to plan an own brewing process on this basis
  • to work out and calculate the course of sugar and colorant extraction as well as the fermentation process
  • prepare a presentation on the calculation, implementation and analysis of the brewing process
  • to evaluate their joint group work in a summarizing lecture with discussion.

3. laboratory

The students are able to

  • to produce their own beer in group work on the basis of their planning and calculation
  • to compare the process engineering basis with the biochemical conversion by practical application of the learned knowledge
  • analyze samples from the production process and derive the course of the biochemical reaction
  • to understand and explain the underlying theoretical processes on the basis of the practical analysis results.
