Metodo di produzione
The procedures and the equipment used for production of this beer are based on the professional experiences and practices acquired by generations of brewmasters and further developed in accordance with modern knowledge in the brewer´s field. The hopped wort of Ceskobudejovické Pivo PGI is produced exclusively by the two-mash decoction method with the open straining of unhopped wort and wort boiling under the atmospheric pressure. The strain of bottom-fermenting yeast is used for the pitching, which was selected and now produced and preserved in the brewery. The fermentation is performed in vertical cylindro-conical tanks with the controlled temperature from 6 to 11°C, while the lagering is separated from fermentation (double-step technology) and is performed exclusively in horizontal tanks. The period of lagering corresponds to the principles of a long term cold lagering with temperature no more than 3°C. After a lagering period the beer is filtered and filled in consumers' or transport packaging.
