How to choose your favorite craft beer equipment?

Source :Zunhuang     Release Time : 2022-12-07     PV :
In recent years, the popularity of craft beer has led some homebrews to commercialize successfully. The commercial approach must go through specialized equipment to ensure stable quality and stable output.

The development of craft brewing equipment has been in China for more than 10 years. There have been peaks and downturns. After the cliff-like downturn in 2000, it gradually recovered in 2003. If it were not for the impact of the US financial crisis in 2007 and 2008, the market would recover even more be quick.

The situation in 2015 was similar to that in 1999. In 1999, there were hundreds of craft beer equipment manufacturers all over the country, and there were more than 40 in Jinan alone. This year, many pharmaceutical manufacturers, tank processing companies, and beverage and dairy companies began to transform into the craft beer industry. Jinan also quickly recovered from a dozen manufacturers to 30 beer equipment factories, and there are more than 30 beer equipment factories in Shanghai, Ningbo, Wenzhou and other places. For equipment manufacturers, the barriers to entry in this market are very low. A salesperson can start a company by finding an OEM manufacturer, and a production team leader can also start a factory by finding a foreign trade company. Of course, there are too many shoddy products.

The market conditions have improved and many participants have joined. This market must be very exciting and bloody. For equipment purchase customers, a set of equipment ranging from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands is not a small investment. If you encounter quality problems and the manufacturer has no after-sales service, you will be heartbroken, and it is too late to regret , that sentence is always so sharp: You get what you pay for! But can small manufacturers do well? The answer is definitely no. You need to investigate the strength of the manufacturer and the processing of the equipment to see if the thickness and material (201, 304) of the plate are selling mutton; look at the sheet metal Is it knocked out by a manual hammer head or machine sheet metal; check whether the welding of the pipeline is filled with argon shielded welding, whether the inside and outside are consistent and free of welding slag; check whether the sanitation of the factory is qualified. Qualified because the details are everything!

The following formally introduces the details of the problem

1. Saccharification configuration

a. At present, the fine brewing equipment in hotel bars is mainly German-style equipment with two bodies and three devices that save space and are easy to operate. Juice}) This type of equipment has been tested by the market and evaluated by brewers, and is the first choice for craft breweries.
There are many ways to match other factory equipment, such as two equipment, three equipment, four equipment, and hot water tanks. These can be reasonably configured in combination with the conditions of the fermentation tanks equipped with the equipment and the production plan.
b. If possible, it is recommended to add a hop adding filter tank, which can not only filter the hops to prevent the blockage of the heat exchanger, but also add hot hops to improve the hop aroma of the fermentation liquid. Currently, hot adding tanks for hops are popular in Europe and the United States.
c. Domestic craft brewing equipment filter tanks are almost all conical bottom, which is convenient to process and low in cost, but the wort yield is also low. The best design is flat bottom (slightly more expensive), one is the filter tank The speed is fast, but the wort yield is higher. At the same time, it is equipped with an easy-to-detach sieve plate. After each brewing, the sieve plate is taken out and rinsed to dry.
Brewers in Europe and the United States often remove and wash the grille, because there is a place under the grille that is easy to hide dirt, which is usually invisible, and bacteria will breed in half a day in summer, causing it to stink. Domestic brewers basically don't know how to disassemble and wash, because some manufacturers design it inconvenient to disassemble, so they just soak it in water, which is a lazy way!

d. It is very necessary to spray the waste washing coil in the filter tank, most of the manufacturers do not equip it, this needs to be added, it is convenient and safe to spray directly through the pump and pipeline through the waste washing coil when washing the waste with hot water, if there is no The spray coil can only be cleaned manually, and it is very troublesome to spray and wash the waste with a hose, not to mention the danger.

e. The heating method of the boiling pot is very important. It is the best choice for steam heating. The steam heating surface is uniform, and the color of the wort will not be too dark. Of course, this requires a boiler, and the equipment cost is slightly higher. Electric heating tube heating can be used on equipment below 1000 liters, and auxiliary measures such as stirring can be used to avoid the occurrence of sticky pots, etc. Equipment above 1000 liters can be heated directly with steam, don't worry about electric heating tubes heated up.

2. Fermentation tank

a. If the budget is sufficient, please feel free to add side manholes or upper manholes, mechanical pressure regulators, breathing valves, sampling valves, laser welding jackets, hop dry spouts, etc. If the budget is limited, at least the manufacturer needs to add a dry hop spout and a sampling valve.
b. The most important thing is the material and thickness of the plate. Too high temperature, too low temperature, too high pressure, acid and alkali will cause steel plate fatigue and affect the service life of the fermentation tank. The thickness of the inner tank of equipment above 500L should not be less than 3mm, the thickness of the ice water jacket should be 1.5mm, and the thickness of the outer bag should be 1.5mm-2mm. I heard some friends say that after one year, the fermentation tank leaked ice water or wine. In fact, the manufacturer did not use steel plates of sufficient thickness, or the level of welding workers was too poor, and the welding oxidation was serious.

3. Refrigerator

The contribution of the refrigerator is far greater than that of the boiler. The preservation of all craft beer is inseparable from low temperature, especially lager beer needs low temperature. Once there is a problem with refrigeration, the temperature of all beer will rise, which will seriously affect the quality of beer. Be sure to choose a big brand that is stable in quality and can be used. It is recommended that the equipment be equipped with 2 chillers and two ice water coils. The two chillers work at the same time to reduce the burden on the chillers. If one goes wrong, the other can normal operation.

4. Boiler

Boilers are currently standard products, and the quality is relatively stable. It is recommended to choose a big brand. At the same time, the use of the boiler must be equipped with softened water equipment. Otherwise, the scale in the boiler will be full in a few months, which will seriously affect safety.
