300L Small Batch Brewery System

This set 300L Small Batch Equipment is suitable for brewpub, restaurant or gastropub setting, any establishment that sells beer brewed on the premises. This equipment is actually belongs to the nano brewery system, which is smaller production capacity. The brewed beer is most typically dispensed from on tap kegs straight into beer mugs, not bottles. The sizes equipment starts from 3HL/BBL, 5HL/BBL to 10HL/BBL. A good scale to perfect balance between cost, size, output, and maintenance.

Starting a small batch brewery business and customizing the equipment that is already available to meet your higher capacity needs, means that we don’t need to keep the old capacity in order to produce a higher volume of products with the previous system design, such as a semi-auto control level, gas / electrical heating option, integrated control cabinet, Uni-tanks, etc. doing this is what lowers the cost of a new brewpub considerably.

Why choose small batch brewery system?

1. Good Model to Test Market

Small batch brewery is actually nano brewery, which is a brewery smaller than a microbrewery. Small batch brewery refers to a brewery that produces beer in batches of 3bbl or less. This is a recognized meaning in the industry. If the brewer has a unique beer idea, they can open a nano brewery to test the market. Compared with investing in other types of breweries, opening a nano brewery requires very little capital. So the nano-brewery equipment is the best starting point to start the beer business. If you want to provide craft beer, but do not want to open a full-scale brewery, then small batch brewery is your best choice.

2. Lower Start-up Cost

When it comes to the equipment’s main function and size, the first thing we consider is the cost-effectiveness of the installation, small batch brewing system is a good solution to average your cost and benefits. The cost of starting a small batch brewery can be staggering, the average start-up cost of a small batch brewery business is about $30,000, and the maximum start-up cost is about $60,000. There are large differences in the start-up costs of nano breweries, and these differences are mainly caused by location, size of nano brewery equipment, and furniture.

3. Less Space Needed

There isn’t an exact answer to this question, but typically, nano breweries require about 2.16 square feet of annual capacity per barrel. But this number is also verifying according to your brewery business model, such as, brewpub for on-site consumption, or nano brewery with a taproom with or without delivery required, production brewery with complete bottling, canning, and barreling lines, they should have different spaces requirements. Certainly small batch brewery is more flexible on aspect of location choosing.

Why choose microbrewery system from Micet Group?

Microbrewery equipment is installed in restaurants, pubs and bars all over the world. They’re more than just fun stuff for people: microbreweries produce craft beer for tourists and customers to drink in-store, sell at select dealers and mail order.

Choosing the best microbrewery equipment for a microbrewery or a large automated microbrewery can be a very complicated job. That’s why the Micet Group sales and technical departments have been busy dealing with inquiries from craft brewers about how to build a microbrewery that fits the site (size) and volume (capacity), whether it’s an expansion or a new microbrewery start-up cost .

Microbrewery devices have varying degrees of automatic control. Higher levels of automation can save winemakers labor, but fully automated microbreweries cost more.

FAQs on Purchasing Nano and Micro Brewing Equipment

Q: What is the total equipment cost for a typical 3-5 BBL startup brewery?

A typical equipment price estimate ranges from $250,000 to $500,000 for a brand new 3-5 barrel microbrewery. Used and Chinese imported equipment can reduce first costs to $100k – $150k but have higher operating and maintenance burden.

Q: Should I buy fermenters and brite tanks from the same brewhouse manufacturer?

Not necessarily – specialized tank makers like GW Kent, AAA, Depression Systems often offer better quality to cost ratio for conical fermenters so get multiple bids. But ensure tanks match dimensions and connections of the brewhouse.

Q: What automation level should I look for in a pilot or micro-brewery?

Look for semi-automated vessels and transfers with automated cleaning packages. While manual operation provides hands-on control initially, smart automation improves consistency and labor productivity in the long run.

Q: How many fermenters and brite tanks should a small 3 BBL brewery start out with?

For a brand new 3 barrel brewery focusing on core recipes, begin with 3 fermenters and 2 brite tanks. This allows you to brew back to back batches while one beer ferments and another cold conditions. Add more tanks as beer portfolio expands.

Q: Should I focus more on equipment quality, flexibility or automation?

Quality and reliability should be top priorities for core vessels like kettles, tanks and fillers that see daily use. Flexibility helps with recipes but standardization improves consistency over manual changes. Start semi-automated, slowly adding sensors across critical parameters.

Q: What are the most common problems brewers face with new equipment installations?

Insufficient utility requirements is a common oversight – ensuring adequate glycol flow rate, chilled water, drainage, steam heating and power supply during peak loads avoids headaches. Also factor in sufficient ceiling clearances.
