Beer Manufacturing IELTS PTE

Please note: I’ve used different words for “then”. Students have a tendency to use “then” frequently in process diagrams. I’ve used words like afterward, next, subsequently, then, later, finally. To help the reader understand, I’ve underlined these words.

The given diagram shows the process of beer manufacturing in eleven stages from milling of malted barley to packaging.

Firstly, the barley is milled and water is added to it during the Mashing process to create a liquid. The liquid is then lautered and spent grain from malted barley is taken out and used as an animal feed.

Afterward, the byproduct is boiled while sugar and hops are added to it, and next it is sent to the Whirlpool for mixing. The mixture is subsequently cooled and fermented using yeast. During fermentation yeast and carbon dioxide are produced as residue. The beer is then fed into the storage tanks for maturing, and matured beer is later sent to the filter for the filtering process. Finally, it is packaged in bottles and barrels for three different types of customers.

  1. The diagram illustrates the process of making beer products. Overall, there are approximately ten stages with milling as the first stage and packaging as the final step. Malted barley is the raw product.

    Initially, the malted barley is put in a milling machine before adding water into the mashing stage. Next is the process of lautering and spent grain is used to feed animals.

    The process continues, the unfinished product is boiled with sugar and hops are mixed with it. It is them delivered to the whirlpool before it is cooled. After cooling, it is fermented with yeast and later produced yeast and carbon dioxide. The beer is them filled in a tank in order to mature. After this, the product I spent filtered in a filtering machine before packed and finally delivered.
