What factors need to be considered when purchasing home-brewed beer equipment!

Home-brewed beer equipment is more and more popular with entrepreneurs and restaurants. Today, home-brewed beer equipment manufacturers talk about what factors should be considered before choosing equipment!
(1) First of all, we must first understand the so-called craft beer on the market, what is home-brewed beer and what is craft beer?

In fact, it’s basically just a different way of saying it. Craft beer is a European and American name. Craft beer has been on the rise in recent years. As the name is called, craft beer was previously known as self-brewed beer in China.

(2) Classification of home-brewed beer equipment

Brewing beer equipment is mainly divided into the following categories: (take 500L equipment as an example)

  • 1. The European style represented by Germany is a three-body two-unit saccharification system commonly used in China, equipped with different numbers of fermentation tanks, plus CIP cleaning system, ice water system (with refrigerator) and control system. Main configuration method The saccharification system is mainly steam heating.
  • 2. American style represented by the United States. The saccharification system adopts two-body two-body type, equipped with different numbers of fermenters, plus CIP cleaning system, ice water system and control system. The saccharification system is mainly steam heating.
  • 3. Domestic simple one-to-one integrated equipment, reducing saccharification into two integrated equipment, the top is saccharification filtration, the bottom is boiling and rotary sedimentation, and then equipped with different numbers of fermenters with refrigerators, plus a control box . Saccharification is mainly based on the heating of electric heating tubes;
  • 4. The saccharification system is an experimental equipment or a small brewery, which can be divided into three-body three-body or four-body-four-body, and other preparation methods are the same as those in Germany or the United States.
  •  
  • Currently using Germany or the US in the global market and simple integrated devices in China. The advantages and disadvantages of each configuration method are different.

(3) Determine the choice of beer equipment according to your business model
  • 1. In China, if it is used in high-end places such as restaurants, hotels, bars, etc., three-body and two-body are usually used;
  • 2. If for a small brewery, preferably three or three tanks or four or four tanks. 
  • 3. For large gear, mid-range and lower business locations, integrated equipment may be considered.

(4) Determine the choice of beer equipment according to your investment scale

  • 1. When the funds are relatively sufficient, the 1:1 saccharification fermentation method is adopted. For example: 500L for saccharification and 500L for fermentation. The operation is more convenient and the work intensity is low.
  • 2. If the funds are relatively tight, the structure can be selected according to the ratio of 1:2, for example: saccharification 300L, fermentation 600L. This is a long operating time, but with little investment and no reduction in output. If the investment amount is small, you may also consider the all-in-one approach.
 (5) Determine the selection of beer equipment according to the water and electricity situation of the store
  • 1. If the store you choose has three-phase electricity and the electricity can meet the requirements, try to choose steam heating, which is convenient and safe;
  • 2. If the power of the store is tight, please consider switching to a gas boiler or the above 1:2 ratio, which can reduce the dependence on electricity and ensure the output of the equipment.
  • The above factors are the issues that you should fully consider when investing in craft beer projects to purchase beer equipment. For different regions and different business models, you need to make comprehensive judgments. To know the specific configuration of the device, please contact 18605415656 (WeChat synchronization)
