How do they make beer, wine and liquor?

By Russ Cobbe

It's a good question and one you rarely think about on the way to the store to pick up a bottle or two of alcohol. They all involve some sort of fermenting process, which changes sugars in the ingredients into alcohol.

Beer

The basic ingredients are malted barley, yeast, water and sometimes other grains are added. Hops for example are used to make the resulting brew have a bitter flavor. Barley grain is turned into a malt by soaking it in water and allowing the grains to start germinating. The grains are then dried in a kiln, which stops the germination and voila you have malted barley. The malt is ground up and mashed with hot water, which is then boiled, the result is called wort. Next comes the fermentation process which starts with cooling down of the wort and the adding of yeast. The yeast turns the natural sugars that exist in the grain into alcohol over a period of time. The end result of course is beer.

Wine

The most important aspect of wine making is deciding when to pick the grapes from the vine. Conditions must be just right for the variety being used and the picking must be done quickly. Stems are removed from the grapes after picking and the skins are generally left on for at least 24 hours. The grapes are pressed to extract the juice from the grape. This juice is allowed to settle to remove any bits of skin. Yeast is added which turns the sugars in the grape juice to alcohol and carbon dioxide. There are specialized yeast cultures that act differently on the grape juice to provide different characteristics. The resulting wine is left so the yeast settles and the wine is drawn off, this can happen multiple times until the wine is clear. The wine is cold stabilized which precipitate white
crystals that are using in making tarter sauce. Finally the wine is filtered and bottled.

Liquor/Spirits

Spirits such as Rum, Vodka, Gin and Whiskey have a much higher alcohol percentage than wine o...
