“Kilikia” beer

Technological scheme of brewery (classical)


  • Grain (malt) refinement of impurities ( stone, iron, dust etc.). Malt is passed through a polishing machine. In order to remove metal impurities, electromagnetic separators are used.
  • Weighing and further fragmentation of refined grain. Malt is crushed in a dried or partially humidified form.
  • Mash making, aimed to provide with the maximum transition of extractives to water solution.
  • Mash filtration, aimed to separate solid phase from liquid phase and get the wort.
  • Wort boiling with hops. Bitter, aromatic, tanning materials are transferred from hops into the wort.
  • Wort cooling in hydrocyclone machine. The purpose is to lower the temperature up to fermentation temperature saturated with oxygen.
  • Main fermentation. The chemical composition of the wort is changed and it turns into a delicious flavored drink.
  • Maturation of young beer (additional fermentation). The remaining sugar is slowly fermented, beer is clarified and is saturated with carbon dioxide.
  • Filtration of matured beer. During the filtration beer loses some part of the carbon dioxide, that’s why before bottling it is carbonated.
  • Bottling of filtered beer. After carbonization beer is stored at least 6 – 8 hours in tanks and then is sent to bottling.
