Beer has as long a history as human civilization. It first appeared in human life before other alcoholic drinks. After the technology of brewing beer spread to Europe, it developed rapidly. Through the continuous improvement and development of europeans, beer has become one of the most popular drinks in the world. When we say beer, of course, beer equipment is essential.
Craft kettle brewing equipment can be designed according to the requirements of different brewers.The whole set Craft kettle brewing equipment includes miller, mash system, fermentation system, cooling system, control system, cleaning system, filtration system, sterilizer, filling line (bottle, barrel, can), packaging.
The two most important steps in beer production are beer mashing and fermentation.So let’s focus on the equipment needed for these two parts.
Beer mashing is one of the most important processes in the preparation of wort. The brewhouse required is mash tank, lauter tank, boiling tank and whirlpool tank. Of course, in order to improve mashing efficiency, most customers will choose a hot water tank to prepare hot water in advance,which can save time.
Craft kettle brewing equipment
Normal configuration of mashing system
Heating method of brewhouse
|Steam heating||More efficiency,suitable for 500L and more than 500L brewhouse|
|Electric heating||Save cost,suitable for brewhouse under 500L|
|Direct fire heating||If electric and steam is not convenient for the brewery,so we can choose direct fire heating|

Automactic spent grain removable system
Tangential whirlpool port
Fermentation tanks, or more commonly fermenters, are key components in beer brewing. Fermenters are specialized tanks designed to precisely control temperature and maintain the optimal conditions for fermentation, which occurs once the wort has been transferred from the brewhouse to the fermenter; a conical-bottom design is highly recommended for fermenters allowing for easier yeast harvesting.
