— Unpasteurized beer, unfiltered beer and yeast beer: what are the differences?

Some brewers, however, revised their approach and began to brew unfiltered and unpasteurized beers, whose popularity is now constantly growing. Pasteurization is a process the beer goes through before filling kegs or bottles. During this process, the beer is heated to a temperature above 60 ° C. Thus, a slowing or complete cessation of active processes occurring until this point in the beer. Due to this shelf-life of beer may exceed one year. However, here is the rule: one is given - both taken. After pasteurization, the beer becomes much lost in the taste. For the same reason unpasteurized beer is so popular. Its shelf-life, of course, shorter, it should be consumed within a short time - from several days to several weeks, but the flavor is completely compensated for this deficiency. It should be noted that the filtration through a special microbiological filter can increase the shelf life of unpasteurized beer for several months.


Unfiltered beer
Another one of the consistently popular types of draught beer is unfiltered beer. Filtering - another process, prolonging the shelf life of beer. During filtration, the beer, which ripen earlier in the basement, cleaned of excess yeast and other micro-particles. It yeast and microparticles give beer its special taste. Unfiltered beer has a light haze, and more full and rich taste.


Yeast beer
The last kind of beer, which we describe is a yeast beer. If you thought that the unfiltered beer and yeast are the same, you're wrong. Yeast beer according to the standards as pasteurization passes and filtering. And in a ready-filtered and pasteurized beer adds additional yeast. They provide the characteristic beer flavor, and moreover a beneficial effect on the digestive system.
