Firstly, let's look at the equipment we are going to need to make our own beer. We are going to assume we will be doing.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Milling System
We are going to assume we will be doing 500L per day.Firstly the malt need to be crushed,so a malt milling machine is necessary,Common malt grinders are divided into double rollers, three rollers, multi-rollers, etc. Under the 500L output demand, a 150Kg/H malt grinder is the most suitable. It is better for the malt grinder to be able to adjust the distance between the two or more rollers, so that the malt can be broken and not broken during the process of crushing.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Brewhouse
The crushed malt needs to be manually put into the mash system for the mashing and boiling process.In this feeding process, you can add equipment such as screw conveyors or bucket elevators to save manual handling of malt.
The mashing system can be divided into four steps:mashing/lauter/kettle/whirlpool,Normally, these four steps can be implemented in the same brewing vessel,called an all-in-one brewhosue.and also some other combination like:two vessels(mash/kettle tun+lauter/whirlpool tun)
And also three vessels:mash tun +kettle tun+lauter/whirlpool tun..
Four vessels combination: mash tun+lauter tun+kettle tun+whirlpool tun,and in order to improve the brewing efficiency,it is optional to add a hot liquor tank in the mashing system.
The function of the hot water tank is to separate the function of boiling water in the mash tun.After the hot water is heated to the required temperature, it is pumped into the mash tun through a hot water pump for mashing.This energy advantage can improve the efficiency of brewing and increase the time of mashing,Increase production batches.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Plate Heat Exchanger
After the mashing finished,the hot wort will be pumped to fermenter,but hot wort should be cooling down to 30-40 ℃，so the plate heat exchanger is necessary,One section of the plate heat exchanger is connected to cold water, and the other section is connected to hot wort, and the hot wort is cooled by circulating contact in the heat tracer.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Chiller and Cooling liquor tank
The wort,which has been initially cooled by the plate heat exchanger, is pumped into the fermentor,and the cooling system is used for secondary cooling and fermentation.
The wort is fermented in the fermenter through a sterile environment and yeast is added.This process releases heat.The cooling system is required for continuous cooling.Unlike the plate heat exchanger,the temperature of the alcohol water prepared by the chiller is around 0 degrees.
Usually the volume or size of the cold water tank and the refrigerator should be selected according to the number and size of the fermentation tank. If the number of fermentation tanks is limited in the early stage, and there are plans to increase the fermentation tanks in the later stage, then a refrigerator with a large cooling horsepower and a large-volume cold water tank can be selected in advance.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Fermenter
Fermentation tank is a pressure vessel for wort fermentation,Double-layer stainless steel plate,with a cooling jacket in the middle,Miller plate cooling, increase the turbulence of cold water and improve the cooling efficiency. Fermentation tank accessories include temperature sensor,thermometer, pressure gauge, sampling valve,manhole,sight glass,etc.The bottom is equipped with a beer outlet arm valve.
The tapered bottom, the insulation layer thickness is 80mm,the material is polyurethane foam,and the cold water pipe is pre-embedded.The cold water in the cold water tank is pumped into the jacket through the cold water pump to achieve effective cooling of the wort.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Heating system
Direct fire steam boiler/gas steam boiler/LPG steam boiler/Electric steam boiler/Electric coil heating are the common way to heating.
For small brewery(the brewhosue is no more than 200L),the electric coil can be the best,it saves the pipeline cost,and beer brewing is not affected by the local energy supply and can be carried out through electricity.
For bigger brewhouse,it is recommended to use steam heating,it makes the mashing more uniform.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Control system
Because PLC programming is becoming more and more common, and there are more and more remote automatic control of brewing. Touch screen and PLC program, just like using a mobile phone, you can check the heating, boiling and cooling time and temperature by touching the screen. The same PLC control system can also be controlled by buttons. . For large breweries, the control system can control the opening and closing of pneumatic valves to realize fully automatic beer production.
What equipment do i need to brew beer?-Accessories
In addition to the above main equipment, there are many accessories that are very necessary.like Hops adding tank,oxygenator.
In addition, for beer brewing plants with high output and filling requirements, after the wort is fermented, it is necessary to add diatomaceous earth filters, plate filters, and increase beer bright tanks to store the filtered beer.Common filling and packaging forms include cans,glass bottles and PET bottles,beer barrels,etc.The specific choice needs to be selected according to the local packaging supply capacity and the customer's preference.
If the above systems or equipment are of interest to you, or if you love beer brewing and want to have your own brewing equipment, we can help you design and install the system.
