the production process of beer require of much stages: classification, cleaning, soaking, tostacion, grinding, the production of the most understands the following stages, maceration, filtration, boiling of the most, sedimentation of the most, cooling, fermentation, ripeness, filtration, pazteurization flash and finally stiffly. Many people sure know the simple ingredient of beer is the grain like wheat or barley, hops, yeast and water, of course with some added ingredient to get certain flavour. So I am going to explain how beer is made in step by step: Choose the grain of barley, there are many types of beer, Different grain will produce different type of beer with their own distinctive taste, After choose the grain, it goes to a process called gemination. This process requires soaking of the grain for a few days to extract the sugar, mimicking the growth of the seed. During this process the sugar can be extracted (). After that, the germinates grain are send to a kiln. The Kilning process is complex; air flow and heat are tightly control to make a specific type of beer. The kilned product is now called malt, which have a small percentage of moisture content, The malt release sweet and malty sugar After a period of storage, the malt is carried to the brewery. They crack the malt and turned into grist. The grist is soaked in hot water; selected water also will play rolled of the type of beer. Once the sugar release the sweet liquid is called wort. The wort is separated from the grain and transfer to the kettle. The next stage is the flavouring process, hops are added in to the kettle together with the wort and then boiled. During the process the hop releases 2 vital components that are resins and oil. Resin gives the bitter taste and oil gives distinctive taste in the beer. Other addictive are added to give more taste and flavour. After boiling, the residues of hops and other addictive are removed. The wort now are quickly cooled by passing over a heat exchange device. After all this, the wort are ready for their ultimate transformation. The fermentation start when yeast are added into the cooled wort, held in a large conical-cylindrical stainless steel vessel. Fermentation will only slow down after the yeast have digested the sugar. The fermentation produce a lot of carbon dioxide which make the drink carbonated Pressure is maintained inside the tanks to keep the beer carbonated. Finally the beer is filter to remove residual yeast and is ready to bottling.

CONCLUSIONS - The process of production of beer contributes to the development of the chemical engineering - This company is a source of work for many persons - The company stimulates the economic development of the Arequipa city SUGGESTIONS It is necessary to have a strict environmental control of the residues generated by the process It is necessary to have strict procedure of hygiene and safety during the process To consume alcoholic drinks in excess is harmful
