Difference Between Beer And Lager

021 Beer vs. LagerMany people around the world love to drink beer. Beer is one of the best selling beverages worldwide. Beer is best on cold season because it keeps you warmth. But did you know that there are two types of beers: ale and lager? These two have their own distinctive features that make them unique from each other. If you are a beer drinker you will be able to tell the difference between these two.  Later I will tell you the difference between beer and lager. There are different types of beers when it comes to name and brand. What type of beer do you love to drink? Does it give you the satisfaction you need? Or, is it worth the money you pay? Do you feel happy when you drink it? Whatever beer you drink, it’s up to you as long as you feel satisfied at the end of the day. But just a little reminder that try to drink moderately especially if you are driving. Many accidents have been reported that drivers who commit the accident are under the influence of alcohol. Alcoholic drinks make you dizzy and when you have too much you get drunk and you won’t be able to control your movements.

And, too much beer or alcohol in your body can also affect your health particularly your liver. So, try to control your beer intake if you want to have a healthy liver. But going back to the topic beer vs. lager; let me tell you the difference between these two great beers. Let us start with the type of yeast that is use. With beer, they use top fermenting ale yeast, while with lager they use bottom fermenting lager yeast. Next, the fermenting temperature: with beer, warmer 15-24 Celsius (ale) (60-75 Fahrenheit), with lager, colder (less than 10 Celsius). Let us now proceed with the aging process of these beers. The beer or the ale generally requires much less time to age after primary fermentation is complete versus lager beer. It only takes several days. It depends on the alcohol strength, style, etc.

On the other hand, lager generally requires a bit more time to age after primary fermentation is complete. It requires at least 3-4 weeks which will also depend on the alcohol strength, style, etc. Next is the color. Ales or beer ranges from very light to very dark depending on style. Lagers on the other hand are similar from very light to very dark depending on style. Lastly, alcohol by volume: Ales ranges from very low (3% ABV) to very high (up to 21% ABV) depending on style. Lagers ABV is just similar to ales.

8 Steps In Brewing Beer

Everybody knows what is beer and most people love to drink beer especially men. Beer is one of the most popular and best seller types of beverages in the market. But do you really know how beer is made? Many people love to drink and love the taste of beer but only a few people really have an idea how it is made. Making beer actually takes time and a long process before it reaches that taste. Many of the techniques used in brewing were found while studying essential oils and how they were extracted with steam distillation  There are actually 8 steps in brewing beer. But before we jump off to the details, let’s first know the definition of beer. Beer is a fermented, hop flavored, malt sugared liquid. Here is the simple definition on how beer is being processed; all beer is brewed from malted barley, yeast, hops, and water, and sometimes there are other ingredients being used such as fruit, wheat, and spices. Then, the yeast turns the sugars in the malt into alcohol and the bitter flavored that you taste in beers in provided by hops and also the flowery aroma. If you notice that beers have different taste and flavors, the flavor of the beer usually depends on many things which includes the types of malt and hops used plus other ingredients added and the yeast. When it comes to yeast that is used in beers, getting the right type of yeast is very crucial because each variety has its own distinctive effect on the beer.

Now let us proceed to more detailed definition on brewing beer. Like I said earlier, there are 8 steps on how beer is being brewed; malting, milling, mashing, brewing, cooling, fermentation, maturation, and finishing.  Let’s start with malting – this is the process of readying barley to be used in brewing. Barley is a type of grass which is tall that has seeds on the top of the stalk. They say that barley is not good for baking but is perfect for brewing beer. There are few steps in malting and each steps pf the malting process unlocks the starches hidden in barley. The first step is the steeping where the grain is steeped (soaked) in vat of water for about 40 hours. The next step is called germination of the barley grain. In the germination process, that grain is spread out on the floor of the germination room for about three to five days where the rootlets begin to form. The next step of malting is the drying or what they call kilning. After kilning the result is the finish malt.

The next step in brewing is the milling. This is the process where the grain is cracked and the brewer chooses for the particular batch of beer. Nest is the mashing. This is the process of turning the finely-ground malt, the grist, into a sweetened liquid. After that comes the brewing which is the next step, here the spent grains are filtered out and the wort is ready for boiling which involves many technical and chemical reactions. There is an important decisions will be made during this stage which could affect the flavor, color and aroma of the beer. Cooling is the next step of the process. In this process, the wort is transferred from the brew kettle through a device to filter out the hops, and then onto a heat exchanger to be cooled. Next is the fermentation. After the wort is passed through the heat exchanger, the cooled wort goes to the fermentation tank to be fermented. Let’s go to the next step which is the maturation. In this stage, the brewer moves, or racks, the beer into a new tank called the conditioning tanks. The brewer then waits for the beer to complete its aging process until the taste ripens. Lastly is the finishing step. In this process the beer is being filtered and carbonated.

If you are a beer drinker then for sure you have an idea about the difference between beer and lager. But for those who are occasional drinkers, for your benefit let’s discuss the beer vs. lager. Beer has actually two major styles that include lager and the other one is ale beer. But for you to know the difference, let’s know the ingredients and characteristics of lager. The characteristics of lager are: this type of beer is known to be bottom fermented which means that the yeast settles at the bottom of the fermenter rather than it floats on top. It is also fermented at a cold temperature, below 50 degrees F in general. It’s called lager because it is stored or “lagered” for some period of time like for several weeks to months before it becomes ready to be consumed. Another fact about lager is that lager actually comes from German word “lagern” which is interpreted as “to store”. If you check your history about beers, beers were actually stored in cold cellars or caves to keep it fresh that’s why it was called lager. In general, lager is golden colored beer but can also be darken especially in Europe. According to the pop king Michael Jackson, he said that lager can mean the most basic beer of the house. In addition to that, it’s also a fact that lager is the most popular style of beer.

There are actually several types of lager that you can buy at the market. You can have the Bock (and the variations of bock), Dunkel lager (the word dunkel means dark in German language), Marzen – this is the type of beers that is often associated with Oktoberfest, Pale lager with the variations include Pilser, which is the typical beer that Americans know like Budweiser, Schwarzbier is a black beer, Vienna lager often in reddish color, and lastly, kellerbier which is the type of beer that is unfiltered.

Now that you have an idea about the different types of lager, you will know see the difference of other types of beers. You can actually compare it with the taste, alcohol content, and how strong it is. They say that if you are light drinker its good for you to drink lager beers.

But then beers are beers and it can make your drunk and could also give you that satisfaction that you want from beers. Each of us has out own preference of beers and we drink it because we love the taste and we are satisfied with its effect in our body. You can actually buy these beers at any beer stores in your local area. Beers are also good because they don’t cost that much like wines and liquors. But you also need to watch out with beers because beers are high in calories. Study shows that 1 bottle of beer is equivalent to I meal so if you consume more that 1 bottle then it’s like eating meal couple of times. So, you need to control your beer consumption because beer can make you fat particularly it will give you a big belly. So, if you don’t want to gain weight and get big belly then you need to control your beer consumption.

Best Beers: Tips For Women Of Today

They say wine is the drink of the gods and for women it is tea. As old as this saying is, the idea of women being all prim and proper, staying at home reading piles of books, taking care of the children, knitting, painting, and whatnot is way behind schedule. Long gone are the assumptions that only men can do the tough jobs. If it’s big, men will do it and women are there to lift their spirits up. This is not the case anymore. I am not saying that women should be lifting heavy stuff by now, but the point of the matter is that men and women of today are treated as equals. Society has reached the defining moment to finally embrace the challenge of women being able to equal themselves with men in terms of intellectual capacity, for some, maybe physical and emotional strength, financial stability, and drinking beer. Yes, you got that right – women drinking beer.

In social gatherings and parties, it is almost mandatory to serve wine for women. Beer was never a good choice for them. Yes, we can say that boys and girls are now at a par but when it comes to drinking beer, a girl is faced with a lot to handle. It is still the men who are better designed to digest and take in alcohol. Even if we argue so much on equality, we have to accept the fact that our biological make-up is different from one another. Women have more body fat than men do this is why they get drunk faster. Fat and alcohol isn’t exactly the most perfect of combinations therefore men stays longer in beer drinking than women. Knowing this, a woman should know her limit. Make sure you eat while you drink. This will slow down alcohol absorption in your body. Don’t stay too long without moving. Moving around keeps you awake and can as well slow down the effect. Only drink beers that you know of. This will ensure you of the possible consequences of drinking them.

Women beer drinkers usually choose light beer. For starters, this is highly recommended. A tip to consider in choosing a beer: most of the time the color is proportional to the effect of the drink; the lighter the color of the liquid, the lighter the flavor. But some beer manufacturers are not following this rule so it’s better to check the content information just to be sure. Examples of beer for starters are Blue Moon, Guinness, Duvel, and Bud Select 55 among others. Some beers are even made only for women. An example would be the Chick beer. This beer is formulated carefully to suit women’s taste. You can find more of these types of beverage out in the market already. It all depends on your taste. For starters, there’s no harm in asking some of your friends whom you think have an idea when it come to beer drinking.

Beer is not only for those men who have big bellies or drunkards starting fights wherever they go. Some beer drinkers see its nutritional value rather than its depressant qualities. Beer is believed to be enriched with nutrients that are essential to our bodies and that drinking beer can actually bring you more health benefits than what you can imagine. It is mostly water therefore it has a hydrating factor and can as well cleanse your kidneys. Taking at most 2 glasses of beer a day remains to be healthy. The problem is not the beer itself but the extensive intake of the beverage. It all depends on the drinker whether or not he wants to stay fit or just is finding a way to let loose through devouring himself with alcohol.
