We build 3.5 - 15 Barrel Brewhouses, and up to 30bbl Hot/Cold Liquor Tanks
Brewhouses are the hearth of your brewery. These vessels undergo the most thermal stress on brew day, as much as 145°F year after year. For this reason, our Made in the USA brewhouses are built burly and complete with every feature a brewer needs to make superb beer. We will build you individual tanks designed for soft hose connections, or design a process piped system with a Diverter Panel, with several choices of controls.
We believe its not in your best interest to tell you what you want. Some manufacturers package everything into what is known as a "turnkey" system, which many times includes equipment or features that you didn't need or want. We believe in providing you a very detailed a la carte style estimate, so you can choose what you need and want. With our estimate, you can see the price of each and every component of the brewery you want to build. We believe it would be doing you a disservice to do this any other way. We are as "turnkey" as you need us to be. Everything you need, nothing you don't want...unlike some turnkey offerings from other companies, that create a "turnkey" package with inferior components to get to a target price point.
Our Mash/Lauter Tuns have every feature you need to achieve excellent mash efficiency and maximum saccharification of grains. Our standard widths are designed for specific minimum and maximum grain bills producing a Plato Range of approximately 10.50-21.85. These vessels feature tight-tolerance lauter screens guaranteed to encourage quick grain bed settling and short vorlauf cycles.

We also build Steam Fired Kettles with superior jacketed surface area for quick vigorous boils, and excellent control.
