Anchor Terminology: The StrikeMarch 14, 2012 Posted by Anchor Brewing at 7:19 pm | Category: Brewing Insights 0
Bob Brewer, Anchor’s resident expert on beer & brewing, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the craft brewing process and the terminology used in the Anchor brewhouse.
The strike refers to the emptying of the brew kettle after the boil is finished.
At Anchor, the strike also involves the removal of the spent hops from the wort by running it through a special straining device called the hop separator.
After hop separation, the wort is on its way to the hot wort tank, and the brew kettle is now ready for another boil.
