The 500 litre model is ideal for micro breweries, especially if space is limited. This model is supplied with a lifting crane to lift the malt cylinder, and an external cooling jacket which can be connected to the cold water supply in order to cool the wort. Stainless steel fermentation tanks are available, with heating/cooling jackets to control fermentation and storage conditions, using temperature control systems.
Available in 200 litre and 500 litre capacities for micro-breweries, as well as 20 litre and 50 litre version for pilot brews.
- Extremely simple to use – takes the mystery out of brewing!
- Use to make any type of beer/ale
- Hot liquor tank, mash tun & copper in one compact vessel!
- Auto programmable temperature & time functions
- Reliable replication of results
The Braumeister can be programmed by the brewer according to the recipe for the beer being brewed, with the following programmable phases:
- Mashing the wort
- Protein phase
- Maltose phase
- Saccharification phase
- Hop boiling
At each stage the precise temperature and time can be set and the Braumeister gives appropriate prompts to the user at each stage. After hop boiling the wort can be rapidly cooled using the cooling jacket connected to either cold water or a chiller unit. The beer then needs to be transferred to a tank for fermentation.
