Types of Commercial Automated Brewing Systems

  • Pilot systems: These are small systems, often used for experimental brewing or by startups looking to test their recipes before scaling up. They have a capacity of 50L to 200L.
  • Microbrewery systems: Ideal for craft breweries and local pubs, these systems can produce batches of beer from 200L to 1000L. They often have semi-automated capabilities and are cost-effective for small businesses.
  • Large-scale brewing systems: These are giant breweries, large breweries suitable for mass production. With capacities over 5000L, these systems feature a range of advanced features to ensure consistency in large batches.
  • Specialty brewing systems: These systems are designed for a specific type of beer (such as a stout, IPA, or lager) and feature specialized equipment that enhances the flavor and character of the specific beer type.

Choosing the right type of system is crucial. Factors such as your target market, production scale, and the type of beer you plan to produce will all influence your choice. It’s also a wise decision to consider future expansion when considering capacity.

Characteristics of Commercial Automated Brewing

  • Automated control: The core of the automated brewing system is its digital control panel. This interface allows you to program and watch the entire brewing process, including steeping grains (mashing), boiling wort, and controlling fermentation temperature. Some systems even offer smartphone connectivity, allowing you to control and watch your brew .
  • Integrated heating element: The automatic brewing system eliminates the need for a separate kettle and heat source. They feature built-in heating elements that raise the water to the precise temperature required for each brewing stage.
  • Pumps and filtration: Many systems are equipped with pumps to circulate the wort during the mashing process and transfer between stages. Additionally, some systems include built-in filters to separate the wort from the spent grains after mashing.
  • Cleaning System: The automatic cleaning cycle is a popular feature on many systems, simplifying the often daunting post-brew cleaning process.

Advantages of Commercial Automated Brewing Systems

  • Consistency: the most important advantage, automated brewing systems provide unparalleled consistency. Whether brewing the same type of beer every day or replicating a seasonal beer months later, this system ensures each batch meets the required parameters, delivering a reliable product to consumers every time.
  • Efficiency: Automation speeds up the brewing process. These systems simplify operation with precise control of temperature, time, and mixture. The result is faster turnaround times, which means the brewery can produce more batches in the same time frame.
  • Resource Management: Automated systems are designed to optimize resource use. This ensures that raw material waste is minimized, resulting in significant cost savings.
  • Reduced labor: Automation reduces manual intervention. While there are some aspects of brewing where manual labor is irreplaceable, many repetitive and labor-intensive tasks can be automated. This not only reduces labor costs but also minimizes human error.
  • Scalability: As a brewery grows, its needs will change. Automated brewing systems are designed with scalability in mind. Whether increasing production capacity or integrating new features, these systems can grow with the needs of the brewery.
