The Brewing Process
Brewing is a process steeped in tradition. Harvested East Anglian barley grains are first kiln dried to produce that characteristic flavour of malt. Malt is then milled and 'mashed' in hot liquor to produce a sweet 'wort' that is boiled together with whole hops. Next the hopped wort is cooled then fermented by adding yeast. Hops were not introduced into the brewing process until the 16th Century when Flemish immigrants began growing hops in Kent. The flowers from the hop vines are dried in oast houses before being added to the beer. They improved the keeping qualities, added a rich aroma and bitter flavour to the beer.
