Lift Bridge Brewing: In Cinemagraphs
Malted grain (above) for the beer batch in process. The stuff can be chewed as is, and it has a nutty, earthy, almost Grape-Nuts-like flavor to it.
We spent about four hours at the brewery. During that time, Matt was constantly on the move. Like cheesemakers and farmers, brewers stay busy.
Matt pours malted grain from a sack.
Hops are added to the mash, where they will add a subtle hop characteristic to the final brew.
Matt stirs the mash to help distribute the grain and keep the temperature even.
