Beer has a long history and the arrival of Science in brewing is quite recent. Science brought beer enlightement and openess, but some of beer wonder was lost.
Modern Brewmasters believe that beer is magic but they don´t believe in magic.

Beer four basic ingredients are simply Nature: Water, Cereal (malted barley), Hops and Yeast. Each of them splits in many variants that bring beer diversity and richness.
But Nature made the Brewer’s work difficult. Barley is very hard and don´t have the right composition. That`s why barley needs to be transfomed into malt, getting smoother and changing composition.
Inside the Brewery, Water and Malt originate the brewing wort that will feed the yeast. This process is hard and hot, it`s the hardest part. Hop is used to reveal bitterness and flavor during wort boiling.
Cold little heart
Brewing wort is than cooled according to the Yeast preferences.
Brewing wort pleases only the Yeast, not Humans. It`s viscous, sweet and cloying.
But Yeast can do magic. It creates likeliness from wort. New flavours arise, others just vanish. And the colour change and the tingliness arrives. Beer is born.
Some beer styles are spiced with fresh hops and new flavours spark from the cold.
Brewing is hearing Yeast heartbeat.
