77 C would be about right.

Yeah, weird show. Big chunk about the clydesdales and the marketing...what's that got to do with the factory? And a bunch of not-exactly correct brewing info, too:

- the brewmasters have to make sure the hops are added at the right temperature? (They don't have the ability to change the pressure -- and thus the boiling temp -- in their kettles, do they?)

- They need to watch the fermentation pretty closely so the yeast don't make too much alcohol !!?

- and they called the whole boiling operation "spicing"...maybe that's what A-B calls it?

Oher weird stuff: in spite of all this automation, the beechwood chips are still added to the fermenters by a crew of three guys with rakes?

Made me weirdly happy that (after all that high-tech factory stuff) the ultimate decision on blending batches is made by a guy tasting all the beers (unless that was TV B***S***)

Some insane factoids, too. The packaging line can do 2000 cans a minute! There's a machine that actually makes sure all the labels in a 12-pack or case face the same way! They sell a keg of Bud every second around the world. They use 50 barrels of yeast in each batch (o maybe this belongs in the mis-info section above?)

The 50 barrel starters may be off, but it is known that commercial brewers use a lot more yeast than we do to speed the fermentation process along.

Well, they don't want to suggest that they add hops to their beers! That would be a lie!!!
