New World Ales Gravity Brewing
Indeed, Michael Combrune was right; gravity has countless positive effects on the brewing process. Its most profound effect is its ability to gently transfer liquids throughout the brewery, protecting fine flavors and aromas in the wort and beer. Gravity also is a constantly present energy source that never breaks down. New World Ales uses our own established method of gravity brewing and bottling in order to create our beers, and we are proud that this tribute to tradition is environmentally friendly and results in a superior product.
Single Temperature Infusion Mash
A traditional mashing process - the mixing of hot water with grain - that takes place at one constant temperature. Different than modern day electronically controlled mashes that aim for the utmost efficiency, our single temperature process aims for utmost quality.
Gravity fed brewhouse
Nearly all of the liquid in our brewhouse is moved through the force of gravity and nothing else. This allows us to better preserve the fine flavors and aromas in the beer by limiting the use of pumps that are damaging to them.
Beer is kept at a constant 67 F throughout the entire fermenting and conditioning process. This lack of temperature fluctuation keeps our yeast happy, and while it means it takes longer for our beers to clear, we think it is well worth it.
