The brewing industry is a complex and globally competitive industry. The process of implementing a turnkey brewery system is also complex. It begins with determining your production capacity, developing an efficient brewing line, and selecting the appropriate equipment.
A turnkey brewery consists of several essential beer brewing equipment, such as the mash tun, lauter tun, brew kettle, and whirlpool. These equipment, when controlled by the brewer, convert the professional grain mill into “wort.” The wort is then fermented and finished in fermenters, lagering tanks, and bright tanks.
What A Turnkey Brewing System Requires
A turnkey brewery is a complete line that includes all the necessary components for brewing beer, from the malthouse to the dispensing equipment and main line. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced winemaker, the following equipment is crucial for your success. These items play a critical role in the success of your business. A turnkey brewery will provide everything you need to start, including the plumbing and fittings required for a successful brewing operation.
Choosing the right tank to complement your winery and control system is essential for our turnkey systems. ACE is a Chinese global brewing technology and equipment manufacturer. They ensure that each brewery setup meets your needs and controls. There are customization options based on your controls, brewery setup, space limitations, and brewing style.
The heat source is the heart of a winery. Whether electric heating or steam heating is best for a brewery depends on several factors that need to be considered when deciding on a heat source. Factors such as distillery size, available utilities, initial and ongoing costs must be taken into account.
Electric heating has an efficiency close to 100%. Since the heating element is submerged in distilled water or wort, all thermal energy is transferred to the liquid without any loss from heating the brewery. Electric heating allows for a compact and flexible design, making it ideal for small spaces. It also has low equipment and installation costs, precise control for high repeatability and automation, and is carbon-free.
Steam systems are used in brewing systems of all sizes. ACE offers turnkey steam brewhouses up to 5000 liters with varying degrees of automation. Steam heating is preferred for large breweries and provides a flexible design for tank placement. It has higher efficiency compared to direct fire heating, a larger heated surface area than direct combustion systems, and offers a higher level of automation and repeatability. It is also ideal for spaces with limited power.
