How to start a craft beer brewery with no money?

It costs a lot of money to make large beer brewing equipment. It will be more difficult to do a small beer business, so many low-cost beer brewing equipment can be selected by brewers.

Buy some small beer brewing equipment, at home you can entertain relatives and friends nearby, family gatherings. Although we can't get together easily, we can brew and drink by ourselves.It starts a craft beer brewery with no money.

Craft beer equipment can be divided into home brewing equipment, hotel/restaurant small beer equipment, and medium-sized brewery production equipment according to different places of use.

The whole set of beer equipment is composed of crushing system, mash system, fermentation system, cooling system, control system, CIP cleaning system, water treatment system, etc.


Flavor beer brewing process

1.Malt Crush

Choose the appropriate crushing machine according to the size of the equipment.

2. Mash

Mash is the use of various hydrolytic enzymes contained in malt to gradually decompose insoluble high molecular substances in malt into soluble low molecular substances under suitable conditions.

3. Filter

After the mash is completed, the decomposition of the macromolecular substances in the malt has been completed, and the soluble and insoluble substances that have been dissolved in the mash tank are quickly separated to obtain a clear wort.

4. Boil

Heat the wort to 100°C, boil it for a while, add hops during the boiling process.

5. Whirlpool

After the wort is boiled, the manhole cover will effectively separate the hot coagulum in the wort as soon as possible, and a clear wort has been obtained.

6.Cooling

The wort passes through a plate heat exchanger to cool the wort to the fermentation temperature required by the process.

7.Fermentation

Beer fermentation is a complex biochemical and material transformation process. The main metabolites of yeast are ethanol and carbon dioxide, but a series of fermentation by-products, such as alcohols, acids, and sulfides, are also formed. These fermentation products determine the physical and chemical properties of beer, such as flavor, foam, color and stability, and colleagues also gave beer typical characteristics.

First of all, starting from crushing malt, malt is divided into basic malt and special malt, which need to be added for beer with special taste requirements. Just as our special beer needs to use special malt as raw material, it is similar to this crystalline malt, this imported crystallization malt is to add color and fragrance to it.

Generally speaking, if you want to make a good beer, you need to have a variety of malts to match. Malt crushing is to facilitate the later mash tun. After crushing, the malt powder is added to the beer mash tun. This is the process of malt mashing. , Before mashing, prepare the required brewing water (suitable temperature)in advance. The mash time is about one and a half hours. After the mashing is completed, the malt material is sent to the lauter tun through the mash pump. 

This set of equipment is a two-bodies three-vessels mash equipment. Mash and kettle tun are in the same tank, and the other is a lauter tun and a whirolpool tun. The upper part is a lauter tun and the lower part is a whirolpool tun The purpose of the filter tank is to filter malt husks. This part takes about two hours. After collecting the wort, the wort was pumped to the mash tun for boiling. The boiling time is one hour. The boiling has two functions, one is sterilization and the other is concentrated wort. During this period, hops or hops should be added. The product enhances the flavor and flavor of the beer. After the boiling is completed, the beer enters the whirolpool tun through the pump and rotates at a high speed to precipitate the condensate and residue. There are two outlets at the bottom of the whirolpool tun. 

The outlet at the bottom is used to collect the residue, and the top is used to collect the wort. The collected wort enters the fermentation tank for fermentation. The fermentation process must realize temperature control, and the fermentation system is connected to the electric control cabinet. In addition to controlling the fermentation temperature, the electronic control cabinet can also control the mash temperature and time, after day’s of fermentation the final fermentation beer becomes the final flavor beer.

Different from normal bottled and canned beer, the fermented beer is not sterilized and filtered. The fermentation process is stricter and the taste is better and mellow. It retains the most original malt flavor and taste of beer. It is produced by craft brewing factory the beer is more fresh.Take a set of 500L craft beer equipment as an example, two batches of production per day, 1000L beer production per day, can meet the drinking needs of 500-1000 consumer,Even if the number of daily consumers is 200, plus food, entertainment and other consumption, it is not a small income. suitable for restaurants, entertainment venues, hotels, etc. With the younger age of consumption, when young people choose beverages, the characteristics of beer prices, low alcohol content, and refreshing taste can fit young people's consumption concepts. 

Excluding the cost of raw materials and manual brewing, the profit is very substantial. Beer fermentation not only plays a role in fermentation, but also can be used as a low-temperature storage and fermentation tank. With the decoration in the store, the polished equipment emits a bright appearance, which will definitely attract customers to consume again. The equipment alone can be used. To the role of advertising. In addition, only from the equipment itself, one investment, life-long benefit. 

As a fast-moving product, the customer’s demand for beer is on the rise. According to statistics, only for the Chinese market, driven by the economic recovery trend, there is a recovery phenomenon in the mass consumer market. Beer accounts for the majority of beverages. The ratio has risen from 8% to 17%. With the change in consumption concepts, people’s demand for beer will gradually increase. Czech Republic,is famous for the consumption of beer, which has reached 190L per year for each one, with an average of one bottle per person per day. Drink more than one bottle a day on average.This data includes women and children who cannot drink. It is affected by the COVID-2019. 

The consumer catering industry has been severely impacted by the impact of the catering industry, but the consumption of beer is still on the rise. I have to admit that the beer market is still the most potential market. In the face of the vast consumer market, if a suitable set of beer equipment can be selected at the right time during the stranded period of the virus, it is completely possible to convert equipment investment costs into profits after the COVID is over and stimulated by large-scale beer consumption growth.

Compared with the growing of beer consumer market, and the daily profit, the cost of a suitable craft beer equipment is negligible.
