ART IN BEER MAKLVG
The State of Perfection Attained at
the Atlantic Brewery.
MODERN MACHINERY THROUGHOUT
The Xm Aniflrial Ire Machine
Other Improvement! How Itecr
is Made A Thriving 1 11
Frequently in the past has The Arqus
devoted considerable space to improve
ments at the AtUntic brewery on Moline
avenue, each descriptive sketch relating
thereto revealing some new and modern
contrivance provided by the proprietor,
George Wagner, in in his efforts to attain
the nearest possible approach to perfec
tion in the art of brewing. That Mr.Wag
ner has succeeded long ago is evinced by
the popularity of his goods as shown by
the immense product of his industry sad
the great demand for George Wagner's
Atlantic brewery beer. Yet he is not
satisfied. Nearly every year he hears of
something new which on investigation be
finds will be of advantage in his brewery.
And he secures it forthwith, without con
sideration of expense involved.
It is reference to another such improve
ment at the Atlantic brewery that this
article is mainly to be devoted. As is a
well known fact the cellars of this im
mense concern have been cooled for a
number of years by means of
an artificial ice process, Mr. Wag
ner having five years ago at an outlay of
$23,000 provided a Krau3Ch refrigerating
machine of 35ton capacity. The
method of operatioa of this novel in
vention which supplies the storage cellars
with an atmosphere as frigid as if it came
from the north pole was fully described
in detail at t iat time. Acting in obedi
ence to the same enterprising spirit Mr.
Wagner has just completed the erection
of af 6,000 machine of the Weisel & Vilter
invention which now gives him a capacity
of 50 tons of ice in 24 hours. To ac
commodate this the front half of the
building in which the original machine
was located has been used, the office
formerly established there having been
moved to the second flaor of the bottling
establishment on the east side of the
grounds. Iu the boiler room directly in
the rear an additional steel boiler has
keen erected making three in all, and all
IS feet long.
The 13 immense cooling cellars bow
have a storage capacity of 12,0o0 barrels,
while the institution has facilities for
brewing 75.000 barrels. There are now
in use 40 CO-barrel casks, 50 30-barrel
casks, 25 40 -barrel casks, 40 large storage
vats holding an average of 120 barrels
each, 42 fermenting tubs of 60 barrels
each. Aided to all these advantages
there is the improved Stockheim filter,
which was put in at a cost of $2,000.
Ail through the establishment the ma-
enmery is me most modern. The most
minute detail 'has not been neglected.
Take a glance at the wash house for in
stance, where every keg is thorouchly
cleaned brushed yes, actually sciubbed
with a brush by steam. Look in at
-he brew house, and everything is
found as clean and as bright and neat as
a pin. The copper kettle holding 150
barrels, the steel mash tub all are models
HOW BEER IS MADE.
"Tell us something of the art of mod
trn oeermaaingr asaea an ABGUS re
porter of Robert Wagner on being shown
through the establishment the other day.
"Well, I can describe it to jou briefly
ss we do it. was the reply. "Come
ever here and I'll shew you the first op
eretion. tso saying be led the way into
e'cellar off from the others where the beer
i.s stored. The cement floor was covered
v ith grain. "We have iust seen the
beer in its last stages in the cooling eel
lurs, saidlMr. Wagner. "Here it is be
fore the fluid is extracted Here it is in
the earliest stage. Barley, as you know,
it the first ingredient of beer. The grain
a'ter it comes from the farmer is placed
it steep tanks. Then it is spread out on
crment floors, such as you see it here
Thus it is permitted to germinate. In
due time it is elevated on tha dry kiln,
where it is dried thoroughly and is then
ready for beer. In a word it then be
comes malt, when it is ground and made
in lo a math with water. The 6tage is
new reached when it goes into the mash
tu!5, such as I showed vou in another
part of the brewery Tiie juice which
cones from this is called beer wort. This
is pumped from what we call the pfaff
into the boiling kettle where it goes
through the process cf boiling, and here
hops form a part of the compound.
It is run into a bop jack and
then pumped into the cooler. After it
i3 tooled off yeast is given to it and af
ter 25 to 30 hours it is pumped into the
fennenting vats where the al
coholic element develops. Fer
mentation consumes about 15
to 18 days. The beer then passes to
the storage vats and lays there until used,
whi ;h is never less than three months.
Whi n it is needed it is brought down in I
chip casks and it goes through a three
weeks' process and is now ready for the
smaller packages kegs, etc.
"Haw much grain do you use in a
"Te turn about 75,000 bushels of bar
ley into malt per annum and consume
250 ba'es of hops."
"And your average annual sales of beer
"About 25,000 barren."
The repoi ter also le irned , that 45 men
are employed in the Brewery, nve
wagons kept constantly in usa in the local
trade, while Mr. Wagner owns his own
side track on Moline avenue near the
brewery, as well as several refrigerator
cirs. lhe institution aoes its owe
cooperage and keeps carpente-s at work
the year round. The brewery ani stables,
where 15 horses are kept, are lighted by
In the bottling department on the east
side of the grounds, the latest improved
steaming vats are used, eaci holding 93
dozen quart bottles, and Lere 2) to 25
barrels of beer are bottled daily, which
amounts to 4.32J bottles.
On the second floor of the bottling
establishment is the office, which is nice
ly finished in Georgia pine and is
handsomely appointed throughout.
Mr. John Caraghsr, a merchant at
Caraghar, Fulton county, Onio. says that
St. Patrick's Pills are the best selling pills
