Malt and beer

We offer you a recipe for making beer in a classic way from malt and hops. This is a pure-grain type of brewing.

This recipe uses an infusion of brewing. It is considered the oldest of all known. If this method is used, the enzymes are better preserved in the mash, and there will be more amino acids and maltose in the wort than when using the boiling method.

If you decide to make beer at home, you will need equipment and raw materials. You can buy ready-made equipment or make it yourself. As for raw materials, some components can be grown on their own (for example, hops), others will be quite difficult to make on their own, it is better to purchase them at breweries or from their suppliers.

Lent: nutritional rules

Even a person who is far from the belief that in modern society has long ceased to be a rarity, this concept has somehow, but been familiar, somehow, yes, but people who believe in God often do not really fully understand that It represents the Great Lent.

Some also know that Lent is the preparation of the Christian for Easter, and, accordingly, for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. So what is Lent at its core? What is it for and what is it “invented” for? And why do some foods go out of use during fasting? We’ll try to figure it out.

To begin with, in order: Lent in Church Slavonic is Four-Decade, which means a quantitative period of fasting – 40 days. Lent is not only observed by the Christian church, it is the central post of all historical churches, as well as several Protestant denominations. Continue reading
