6 Summary of Week 2

During this week’s study you have seen how the brewing process operates from an industrial perspective at Hook Norton brewery. Although all breweries will have their own exact brewing processes and recipes, the basic principles of brewing remain the same. Also this week you were introduced to the different ingredients of beer and you saw how different flavours can be introduced.

You should now be able to:

  • describe the importance of the constituents of beer
  • explain the mechanisms of the brewing process
  • discuss the difference between different types of beer.

In the next week of study you are going to learn more about the concepts of both smell and taste from a biological perspective.
