- starch source - such as malted wheat or barley, able to be saccharified (converted to sugars) then fermented (converted into ethanol and carbon dioxide)
- brewer's yeast - the microorganism that is responsible for fermentation in beer. Yeast metabolises the sugars extracted from grains, which produces alcohol and carbon dioxide, and thereby turns wort into beer. In addition to fermenting the beer, yeast influences the character and flavour.
flavoring - such as hops, which contributes a bitterness that balances the sweetness of the malt

- Wheat beer producers use a special yeast to ferment their products, called torulaspora delbrueckii which produces esters that have a fruity, banana-like flavor and phenolics that have a clove-like spiciness. That’s a lot of flavor, but due to the combo of esters and phenolics, these beers often end up tasting cider and floral as well.

To manage a wheat production for beer industry you can use Agrivi software, which helps farmers to achieve better and higher yield. It allows you to plan whole production in advance and track all resources like fertilizers, pesticides, fuel, mechanization, people. The system alerts you also about pest and disease occurrence, according to weather conditions on fields, so you can prevent yield damage and loss. All wheat pests with brief description and active substances to treat them, no matter you have conventional, organic or integrated farming, you'll find in the system. For complete and proper management of your farm production, Agrivi offers you additional tools- reports for each segment of production, finances and powerful analytics. Considering the good properties of beer on human health, start to grow wheat and use Agrivi system to help you achieve even more yields.
