a brewery in action

lauter tun at Clipper City Brewing CompanyI've posted some pictures on Flickr of a brewing day at the Clipper City Brewing Company of Baltimore, Maryland. Jump here.

To the right is the lauter tun, where the rakes help separate the sweet wort from the mash. Wort is the word brewers use for sugar water extracted from the soaked malted barley. That liquid will be boiled and cooled, whereupon yeast will be added and fermentation begun.

[UPDATE: more pictures added from time to time]
