How to brew whisky in distillery

Brewing whisky involves a combination of brewing and distillation processes. Here’s a simplified overview:

 

  1. **Malting:** Barley or other grains are soaked in water to initiate germination. After germination starts, the grains are dried in a kiln. This process converts starches into fermentable sugars and develops flavors.

 

  1. **Mashing:** The dried malted grains are ground into a coarse powder called grist. This grist is mixed with hot water in a mash tun to create a mash. The hot water helps extract fermentable sugars from the grains.

 

  1. **Fermentation:** The liquid extracted from the mash, known as wort, is transferred to fermentation vessels. Yeast is added to the wort to begin fermentation. The yeast consumes the sugars and produces alcohol and carbon dioxide. This results in a liquid known as “wash” or “beer wash.”

 

  1. **Distillation:** The wash is then distilled in copper pot stills or continuous column stills. Distillation involves heating the wash to separate alcohol from the other components, based on their boiling points. The result is a clear, high-proof alcohol known as “new make spirit.”

 

  1. **Maturation:** The new make spirit is transferred to oak barrels for aging. The whisky absorbs flavors and characteristics from the wood during this aging process. The aging period can range from several years to decades, depending on the desired style and quality of the whisky.

 

  1. **Blending and Bottling:** After aging, the whisky may be blended with other barrels to achieve a consistent flavor profile. It is then filtered and bottled for consumption.

 

Throughout the process, every step contributes to the final flavor, aroma, and character of the whisky. The choice of grains, water, yeast, fermentation time, distillation techniques, type of casks for aging, and duration of aging all play crucial roles in determining the unique qualities of the finished whisky.
