Mash Pot, Gelatinization Pot
The mash pot is a cylindrical vessel with a tapered sandwich and a curved top lid. It adopts high-efficiency Miller jacket heat exchange technology outside the pot, and applies the scientific steam turbulence principle to achieve maximum heat conduction and energy-saving effect. The heating rate and holding time are accurately controlled. Near the bottom of the pot, there is a paddle agitator driven by a motor through a vertical turbine reducer. After crushing, rice flour and a portion of malt powder are mixed with water and boiled. This mixture is used to heat the mash, liquefy the starch, and promote gelatinization. This process maximizes the activity, conversion, and catalytic effects of various enzymes, ensuring the best quality and highest yield of beer.
The internal structure of the mashing tank is divided into two layers. The upper layer functions for filtration and drying using the filter tank method. The filter sieve plate is made of stainless steel 304, with a spacing of 0.7-0.9mm, ensuring long-term use without deformation. The lower layer performs mashing, boiling, and cooling functions. The tank is equipped with an advanced and scientific tiller structure system and hydraulic automatic lifting technology, ensuring uniform trough turning, stable trough discharge, improved filtration speed, production efficiency, transparency, and juice yield of wort.
Boil The Pot
During boiling, hops and other spices are added to contribute to the bitterness and aroma of the final beer. Hops contain alpha acids that isomerize to iso-alpha acids, the main bitter substances in beer, during boiling. The boiling pot is used for boiling and concentrating the wort in beer production. It brings hop aroma to the wort and is an essential equipment in the saccharification process. The structure consists of the pot body, thermal insulation layer, liquid inlet, and liquid outlet. Extracorporeal circulation mixing technology is adopted to ensure uniform temperature during the heating process, preventing denaturation of wort solubles caused by local overheating and ensuring boil quality.
The lower part of the sedimentation tank is used to separate hot coagulation, reduce spin speed, promote settling and agglomeration of coagulation, and serve as a temporary storage during wort filtration. The wort enters along with the tangential nozzle at a certain speed and rotates for a certain period under centrifugal force. Hops and thermal coagulation gather in the center of the pot body, achieving optimal separation from the feed liquid.
Hops Adding System
The hops adding system can consist of two or more tanks equipped with accessories such as pumps, pipelines, and valves. The system allows control of hop addition amounts and can be connected to the CIP system for automatic, semi-automatic, cleaning, and disinfection functions.
In the commercial brewing process, various brewing equipment and brewing transfer equipment are designed, providing opportunities to manage and optimize fluid transfer and achieve delicious craft brews. Today, our engineers and brewers shared the method and composition of mashing. We hope this information will assist brewers in planning their breweries. Feel free to ask if you have any questions or require a turnkey solution for brewery equipment. Our engineers can design and manufacture brewery equipment tailored to your brewing process, providing a complete solution for your brewery’s needs.
