What happens to the beer during the aging process?
- Art DhemiaThe aging or maturation process is designed to enhance the quality of the beer. The fermented beer is allowed to sit, undisturbed for a specified length of time which allows the yeast to settle and reduce the risk of off-flavours. Aging allows the aromatics to mellow. Ales require longer aging periods, anywhere from months to years, while lagers will mature in weeks.
