They are a growing number of homebrewers worldwide and some of them are looking to turn their hobby in a to a full-time business. Other people see successful craft breweries and want to get in on the action themselves.
Before we look at specific equipment, I would like to bring up the first point above…the size of your brewery. As a professional brewer with many years’ experience I have some thoughts on the subject.
Please note we will use hectoliters (HL) in this article.
1 hectoliter = 100 liters => 10HL = 1,000L
What Equipment do I need to Start a Brewery?
The first place to start is your brewhouse. It’s where you will make the sugar that the yeast will turn into alcohol. A brewery can be a 2,3,4 or even 5 vessel system. It will have a mash mixer, lauter tun, brew kettle and whirlpool.
The mash tun is where you mix the water and malt that will turn starch into sugar
A lauter tun is the vessel where you transfer you sugar liquid (wort) from; going to the brew kettle leaving the malt behind.
The brew kettle is where you boil your liquid, sterilizing it, there is a color change and also where you add the hops that give you beer bitterness.
A whirlpool is a vessel where you create centrifugal forces to create a cone of matter to be left behind when you collect your wort to the fermentation vessel.
The most common choice is a 3-vessel system. You will have a combined mash/tun later and a brew kettle and whirlpool. The other option is a mash mixer, lauter tun and combined brew kettle and whirlpool.
In my experience if you have a combined mash mixer/lauter tun with separate brew kettle and whirlpool it provides a quicker brew day.
