Over the past few years, I have noticed a few trends in the design of equipment for microbreweries. First, people prefer a three vessel brewhouse to the normal two vessel brewhouse, even though they only make one or at most two batches per day. This combination is the Mash/Kettle Tun + Lauter Tun + Whirlpool Tun. In this configuration, the Lauter and Whirlpool Tuns are separate because they have special functions in saccharification, while saccharification and boiling can be done in a single tank that works similarly. Secondly, on top of these three vessels, the fermenter should ideally be designed wider and larger to create some of the special high gravity beers that more and more brewers are seeking. Will high gravity craft beer attract more and more drinkers in the US? Or could this reflect “uniqueness” and “specialness”. Whirlpools, like Lauter pools, should be designed to a certain H/D. Third, cold water tanks have become very common. Large glycol water tanks have been put down in many breweries.
<<China-Korea FTA」 was approved by the Korean Parliament on November 30.
It has come into effect on December 20. After a transition period of up to 20 years, China’s zero-tariff products will reach 91% of tariff lines and 85% of imported products, and Korea’s zero-tariff products will reach 92% of tariff lines and 91% of imported products. This is a huge deal for trade between China and Korea. Take beer brewing equipment as an example, we can help our customers to apply for certificate of origin for free. This will save customers a lot of tariffs. Seize the trend! Have your own beer brewing system!
