Pasteurization

13 posts in this topic

Just wondering about something? Some craft brews say on the label "Non pasteurized, keep refrigerated. Our beers aren't pasteurized and they sit at room temp for months. Why does boughten need refrigeration?

What's "boughten"?  Must be a Minnesota word...

 

Some commercial brewers pasteurize their final product after it is in bottles or cans because it kills any bugs and yeast that might remain.  Cuts the risk of bottle bombs, which in a store or a home could be a big problem for a big brewer.

Also I think it guarantees stability of the product from a quality control viewpoint.

No, that's in Eastern Kentucky.  They go to the dentist twice a year.  Once for each tooth.

 

And I used to live in Eastern Kentucky, so I familiar with the easterners

Honestly didn't know boughten was an unusual word. People here use it all the time to identify something that's not homemade. 

Now excuse me while I finish skinning a possum for dinner.

Good stuff, Gopher.  What homebrew do you serve with that?
