On this day, Suntory Beer Co., Ltd., Tokyo-Musashino Brewery Factory General Manager, Keisuke Katsura, explained the renewed factory tour.

Suntory's first beer factory opened in 1963, Tokyo's Musashino Brewery Factory, and "Nature water beer factories" have 4 locations throughout the country, and all have "natural water" suitable for beer brewing It is in the area where it can.

It is said that the site tour that has been renewed has been revamped with the content that firmly conveys "making things that stick to natural water".

Mini brewery

First of all, we visited the research and development facility "Mini Brewery" opened in 1989. (※ This is an area that is not generally open to the public)

Here, I could see the "charge tank", "filter tank", and a combined tank for fermentation and storage.

Suntory's new product is the heart of Suntory, as it was researched and developed in this mini brewery.

The book “Dreams” written by the calligrapher Takeda Sokumo was embellished in the year XNUM when “The Premium Malt's Masters Dream” was developed.

Factory tour tour start

Sticking natural water

That is the beginning of the tour tour of Suntory's beer factory, which has been renewed since here.

The tour can be seen from the selection of "natural water", "malt" and "hop" ingredients for beer.

Here you can see how natural water is made up and how you get to the factory using a model!

The Premium Malt is brewed using natural water from deep underground.

Rain falling on the mountain slowly penetrates the ground over the years, and the minerals contained in the ground dissolve into the water, so it seems that clean natural water is produced.

All the beer products made in factories in Suntory are brewed using this "natural water"! It is not so delicious (^ ^)

You can sample malt

Nijo barley malt

Nijo barley malt

Then you can see the "malt" used in the premium malts.

The malt is added with a rare malt called "two-row barley malt" and "diamond malt" produced in the Czech Republic and neighboring countries to maximize the taste of the material

Taste the fragrant diamond malt

Taste the fragrant diamond malt

When I tasted the diamond malt, I felt a very fragrant smell and taste.

It is so fragrant that if you ask if it is cooked through the fire, it is said that wheat is only soaked in water and dried to allow it to generate enzymes, and the fire does not go through. This fragrant flavor gives a deep richness!

hop

The hop flower part is on display

The hop flower part is on display

"Hop" is a vine-like plant that seems to play a role in giving beer a bitter taste and aroma. The Premium Malt is made with "Aroma hop" from Europe and "Fine Aroma hop" from Czech Satz.

Pelleted aroma hop

Pelletized "fine aroma hop"

You can not sample hops, but you can experience the smell of pelletized "fine aroma hops".

It seems that it is possible to maintain a certain quality by importing the hop flower in the pellet form of 4 ~ 5 grains and importing it!

Preparation method of preparation

Then you can see the process of "preparation" to make "wort" that becomes the skeleton of beer at this theater.

Preparation area where you can visit after the theater

Let's look at the preparation process with the "prep area" where you can tour after the theater.

Feed tank and feed tank

Preparation tank

Feed tank and feed tank

This "preparation area" with 6 facilities. First of all, make the source of wort in this "preparation tank", simmer the source of wort in "preparation bowl", and add thickness to the taste of beer.

Filter tank

Next, we will remove malt husks in this "filtration tank".

Boiling pot

Boiling pot

This "boiled rice cake" is to extract bitterness and aroma by adding hop to wort and boiling it.

Settling tank

Settling tank

Settling tank

The "settling tank" is to remove hop gas from wort before fermentation.

By the way, inside the coffin is a photo shoot NG, but you can visit it!

Premol is made by double decoction method and aroma rich hopping method

The premium malts made with this kiln are made using the 2 special process called "double decoction process" and "aroma rich hopping process".

  • Double decoction method.. Preparation method to bring out the taste firmly by preparing diamond malt and simmering at 2 degree
  • Aroma rich hopping method· · Transfer the filtered wort to a boiling pot and add "Aroma hop" when boiling and "Fine aroma hop" before and after boiling.

With this “double decoction process” and “aroma rich hopping process”, which took about 10 years to develop, the premium malt can have a gorgeous scent and deep body!

"Kami Foam" made by fermentation

Yeast chamber

Then, the process of fermentation.

Fermentation is decomposed into carbon dioxide gas and fragrant components by adding yeast to the wort finished in the process of preparation, and it will be a bottle of beer called "young beer" that has been born in about one week.

It seems that beer bubbles are made up of small bubbles of carbon dioxide gas.

"Air bubbles" are produced by malt-derived proteins and bitter components. The breweries are said to have changed the material depending on what kind of material they used and how they were made.Beer's resumeIt is also known as

The yeasts are carefully selected, and they control the fermented yeasts under the XNUM time system, so this premium is closely related to the fine and creamy "Kohwa" of the premium malts.

Sake

Sake tank

Sake tank

The final stage is making beer. It is a process that matures about 2 ~ 3 weeks and prepares the taste in the tank that has been adjusted to low temperature in the low temperature of the young beer just finished fermentation here.

By storing it, the oli is sunk and the taste and aroma become mellow, and after filtration, it goes into the final packaging.

Can go through the liquor tank

Here you can pass through the "sake tank" that was once used for aging.

The "Sake Tank", which seems to be made for science fiction movies, is the best as a photo spot!

filtration

In the filtration process, we will remove the yeast and oli that have finished their duties by passing the microfilter that is stacked here in layers.

Packaging

Finally it is the packaging of the final process. The beer that has passed through the filtration process is filled here into cans and shipped as products.

I could see the factory of packaging. The endless row of premium malts can be spectacular!

The Premium Malt's factory not only saw the raw material that becomes the raw material for beer, but also saw the process, and it was a plant tour well understood that it was made with a strong commitment to "natural water"!

Waiting time for tasting time!

After the factory tour, it is time to wait for tasting!
