Cold filtering is an alternative to pasteurizing. Beer can be passed through a filter fine enough to remove the suspended yeast and to stop fermentation. The beer is chilled so the protein molecules clump together and are therefore easier to filter out. Cold filtered beers typically preserve more beer flavor than heated pasteurization.
What is a Seidel glass?
A Seidel is the only beer glass with a handle. It’s typically very heavy and sturdy. They can have different textures and come in different sizes. Seidels are also called mugs or drugs.
What is a ‘Steam Beer?’
A Steam Beer is a beer produced by hybrid fermentation using bottom yeast fermented at top yeast temperatures. Fermentation is carried out in long shallow vessels called clarifiers, followed by warm conditioning and krausening. The style is indigenous to America and was first produced in California at the end of the 19th century, during the Gold Rush.
