Wort Cooling and Aeration

(book excerpts)

After hot trub separation, the wort is preferably cooled to a temperature of 5 to 15°C for bottom-fermented beers and to 15 to 18°C for top-fermented beers (pitching temperature). The wort is then aerated in preparation for the addition of yeast and subsequent fermentation.
