Beer, who doesn’t know beer? This alcoholic
beverage made through the process of fermentation and distillation is referred
to as the third most popular beverage, after water and tea. Some even say that
beer is the oldest alcoholic beverage in the world. In line with the beer
master, there are many understandings or even myths about this drink that
turned out to be wrong. The following are several myths about beer that must be
straightened out, lets check it out !
1. Beer is dangerous to health This
sentence is the myth most often heard. One thing that must be understood is,
anything that is excessive is always bad for health. Arrangement in matters of
eating and drinking is a key that we must pay attention to for health
conditions. Also, there has been a lot of research in the health field that
shows that when beer is consumed, it can have a positive effect on the body.
Beer is also known to contain important proteins and vitamins which mostly come
from natural ingredients.
2. Delicious beer in a cold state ice beer
is indeed refreshing, especially when the weather is hot. But, if the beer is
too cold, it is likely to affect the rich taste that you should feel more.
Because, many beers are made with rich flavors, and the cooler the beer is
served, the less likely you are to taste it. Thus, it is best to enjoy beer in
a cool enough state, and the rich taste will emerge fully.
3. Beer in a bottle is better than in a can
? Remember beer in a bottle can not be guaranteed as a beer that is better than
those packed in a can. The can promises beer quality that will be better
because beer is protected from direct light so that the flavor is more awake.
4. Beer does not have to foam The air
affects the quantity of foam when the beer is poured. Thus, the lack of air contamination
in beer will trigger a lot of foam bubbles. beer seal that helps keep the beer
from the influence of outside air. So, the more foam bubbles that appear the
more it indicates the freshness of the beer.
5. Brewer’s main yeast This topic has long
been a debate. But it needs to be emphasized, yeast is not the main ingredient
of beer makers. Yeast is only used as a catalyst in the brewing process.
Undeniably, yeast is indeed an important part of the brewing process. Yeast
helps convert sugar into alcohol, and also brings out the fruit flavor and the
distinctive golden color of beer. However, yeast is filtered out after the
fermentation process, and for this reason, it cannot be considered the main
ingredient of beer. Most beer is made from wheat and hops. These wheat seeds
form sugar and enzymes which break down protein with the help of yeast. While
hops, also known as Humulus lupulus, are used as flavoring ingredients and that
maintain the taste of beer, to add to the bitter and sour taste.
6. Make wine much more complicated Make no
mistake. Brewing turns out to be complicated and not as simple as a mixture of
wheat, hops, and water. Just like wine, many variables can affect the taste of
beer. Starting from the source of water, soil, and climate at the location of
beer production, everything affects the taste and aroma of beer products. So
rest assured, the process needed to create a high-flavor beer is somewhat
complicated and can be considered equivalent to the complexity of winemaking.
