Chapter 4: How to read the Label

In this chapter we are going to go for the methods. We have seen the process but now we go a bit deeper. 

The methods are the different techniques used for each stage of the process.

The method begins with the Jima, the different tools used for cutting. The cooking, the different ovens. The mashing, how do they mash the plant once its cooked. The fermentation, times, tools, yeasts, etc. The distillation, most common techniques per region.
