Oil Heated Brewhouse | 1 to 10 bbl

Oil Heated Brewhouse | 1 to 10 bbl

Available in sizes from 1 to 10 bbl as full 3-vessel systems or 2-vessel systems that do not include an HLT.

Compared with the traditional steam heating brewhouse, the creative new-tech thermal oil heating avoids steam condensation and provides more possibility in reducing energy consumption in the brewing process, while achieving the same or better output. With gas fired brewhouses, all heat is directed to the very bottom of the kettle. Steam offers more surface area, but it requires a generator to create steam, collect it, and reheat it again. Oil heated brewhouses, on the other hand, use a simple oil heater and pump to circulate oil through the tank jackets, heating from the sides rather than the bottom. This offers not only greater surface area but faster thermal response compared to the other heating methods. By controlling the oil temperature, you also have more precise boil vigor control. For these reasons and more, the Oil Heated Brewhouse makes for an ideal pilot batch system.

This system also features a complete brew stand, product pump for recirculation and sparging, hard piped manifold, grain out door on the mash tun, and mounted plate chiller. The hard plumbed system is very easy to clean and only one hose is required for the whole process.
