All beer can be classified as either an ale or a lager. The differences begin during the brewing process, as defined by the type of yeast used in the brew and the temperature at which fermentation takes place. Lagers are brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast which ferments more slowly and at colder temperatures.
Traditionally bottom yeast will ferment at cold temperatures less than 10 deg C. Caybrew fermentation takes place at 12 to 18 deg C. This cold or deep fermentation allows the malt and hops to assert their fine flavors. Lager tends to be paler, drier and less alcoholic than ales.
It takes nearly three weeks to produce Caybrew and CayLight. That’s seven days in fermentation, ten days lagering and one day in the bottling tank.
