The brewing process is a continuous process，which include mashing,lauterting,boiling,whirlpool,cooling,fermentation,maturation….In the skilled hand of the brewmaster, convert grain that has been milled through a specialty grain mill,into sweet liquid called“wort”. Wort is subsequently fermented and finished in specialized beer tanks called fermenter and BBT.
Beer mashing/Beer brewhouse of 500l brewing system introduction
Mashing is the first step of brewing process, occurs in this vessel.By soaking the milled grains in heated water, sugar extraction (along with color and flavor extraction) as the main purpose of this activity is processed when enzymes (from the malt) break down the starch into maltose to produce wort. It will proceed in a system namede “beer brewhouse”.Brewhouses are comprised of several key pieces of brewing equipment. The whole brewhouse has four function,which is mash,lauter,boiling,whirlpool.

The mash tun is a key component of a brewhouse and is where grain, previously cracked in the grain mill, is combined with metered hot water to convert complex starches into more readily-fermentable simple sugars. The mash tun may stand alone or be combined with a lauter tun to create a mash tun/lauter tun combination.
The Lauter Tun is a key component of a brewhouse and is used to recirculate wort over a grain bed in a clarifying process called vorlauf. Sugars are rinsed and extracted from the grain during the sparge cycle within the lauter tun. Wort being transferred to the brew kettle is lastly separated from grain, generally using a false bottom filter screen in the lauter tun.
3.Beer boiling kettle
Brew Kettles, key components of any brewhouse, are where wort is boiled and reduced for approximately 60 to 90 minutes. During boil, initial hop additions are introduced into the brewing process. After boil is complete the wort is whirlpooled to separate unwanted solids from the desired liquid. It is generally recommended that brew kettles be made of stainless steel or some other sturdy, nonreactive material. In addition, brew kettles should be over-sized at a minimum of 40% to reduce the risk of boil-over.
4. Whirlpool tank
Brewery whirlpools are key components of any brewhouse and are where boiled wort is precisely swirled to precipitate solids to accumulate them in a neat cone called a trub pile. Whirlpooling is the final brewing process before the wort is cooled in a wort chiller and yeast is pitched, initiating fermentation within a fermenter. Benefits of brewery whirlpools include clearer wort, faster cooling, increased hop aroma and flavor, and reduced dimethyl sulfide.
