German term or phrase: Würze
This is a term used in brewing to describe the mixture of malt and yeast.

Anschließend fließt die gereinigte Würze in die Würzepfanne und wird zusammen mit dem zugesetzten Hopfen aus der Hallertau gekocht.

Die Stammwürze ist die Menge an Extraktstoffen, wie Malzzucker, Eiweiß, Mineralien und Vitaminen, die der Sud vor dem Gärprozess enthält. Zwölf Prozent Stammwürze bedeuten z.B. dass in 1000 g Bierwürze; 120 g Extrakt vorhanden sind

Wort


Explanation:
Pronounced as if it were spelled "wurt." This is the brewing term for beer in this phase. The Joy of Brewing (the beer brewer's bible) is a good source for English brewing terminology. It also has (I know from experience) excellent beer recipes!
Hope this helps.
