Pils & Hell

Category Pils & Hell

What is Pils?

Pils is a bottom-fermented beer made from Pilsner malt and aroma hops. It has a golden to yellow color and is known for its hoppy taste and fine aroma. Pils is often referred to as the classic German beer and is very popular worldwide.

How is Pils made?

The production of Pils starts with malt production. The malt is made from barley and roasted in a malt house. Then the malt is mashed in a brewery, i.e. mixed with water and heated to a certain temperature. Enzymes are activated, which convert the starch in the malt into sugar. After mashing, the wort is boiled and aroma hops are added. The hops give the beer its characteristic taste and aroma. After boiling, the wort is quickly cooled and yeast is added. The yeast converts the sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide, which gives the beer its carbonation.

What is Hell?

Hell is a light-colored, bottom-fermented beer made from light malt and aroma hops. It has a light golden color and is known for its fresh taste and light aroma. Hell is especially popular in Bavaria and is often referred to as a typical Bavarian beer.

How is Hell made?

The production of Hell is similar to that of Pils. The malt is mashed and boiled, with aroma hops being added. After cooling, the wort is inoculated with yeast and stored in tanks where it ferments. The beer is then filtered and bottled or kegged.

Although Pils and Hell are made similarly, there are some differences between the two beer styles. Pils is usually more heavily hopped and has a stronger taste than Hell. Hell, on the other hand, is milder and lighter in aroma. Pils also often has a higher alcohol content than Hell.
