The Lauter Tun is basically a giant rake and natural filter system that separates the grain husks from the sugary liquid, or “wort”. The Lautering process rinses the mash with hot sparge water until all the sugars have been depleted.
Next, we add water and spin it a few hundred times in the Mash Tun to mix it up good. Then we adjust the temperatures to help the enzymes convert the starches into short chain sugars. After about an hour or so of this, it’s time to send it over to the Lauter Tun.

Next, the wort is transferred to the Brew Kettle where it will be boiled vigorously for an hour or so. At various times during the boil, special hops will be introduced into the kettle for the bittering process. The hops create that crisp clean finish to the ale. The real secret to brewing Honey Amber Rose Ale is the addition of locally grown Clover Honey and Rose Hips at just the right moment to give this ale that wonderful flavor that we all love so much.

After that, we put this amazing brew in a bottle and ship it out to you!
