Malted grain, such as barley, is steeped in water and fermented during the brewing process, adding sweetness to beer. Other malted grains used in brewing include wheat, rye, oats, and rice. WWW.OREGONTRAVELCOUNCIL.COM During the boiling process, sterilization occurs and hop flavors, bitterness and aromas are released. Different brewers use different methods for boiling, depending on the flavor and boldness desired for the beer. The taste characteristics of beer may come from the type and amount of malt used, flavors imparted by the yeast, and strength of bitterness. 9
