The Boil

After boiling the wort and hops for an hour and a half, the wort is cast into the hopback. A false floor of slotted brass plates stops the spent hops from pouring through to the next stage. Instead they act as a filter bed for the boiled wort to percolate through.

From here the hot liquid is pumped to the "open-fridge" beer cooler.
