I’ve another ex-exhibition brewhouse for sale (reduced price). The brewhouse is complete and ready to ship. It’s currently in China.
The system was originally built for the beer convention in Shanghai last year. Let’s take a closer look at the 4-vessel fully automated system, starting with the basic configuration.
The brewhouse is a 4-vesel system with 25HL mash tun, 25HL lauter tun 25HL kettle and 25HL whirlpool. It’s also comes with a 50HL hot liquor tank (HLT) and heat exchanger. This set up allows for 4 to 6 brews per day.
The system includes a large HLT to allow for continuous brewing, the tank is also used for storing the hot water created from wort cooling as well. It’s a one-stage heat exchanger so, needs a cold liquor tank (CLT).
You’ll use the CLT water to chill the wort going to the FV through the heat exchanger. The water goes back into the HLT so, helps make continuous brewing easier. The brewhouse efficiency is
The mash tun, has an effective volume of 3,000 liters with a top installed pre-masher. It has a large heating area of 3.92 meters squared for efficient step mashing.
The mash tun has a paddle blade with slight angle for better mixing, the agitator is at the bottom of the vessel.
It has VFD control so, the brewer can regulate speed as needed. The outlet for transfer to lauter tun, is at lowest point of the tun, to take all the mash over.
There are two steam jackets around the side and bottom of vessel. The steam jacket has been installed with a coil pipe for even heating distribution.
The blades for the lauter tun are designed for optimal lautering efficiency and good wort transfer to the kettle. The stir height is adjustable as required for each individual brew.
Furthermore, the grain out is automatic, with the grain moved by the designed plate. The whole stir unit is installed on a frame to the bottom of the tank.
The mash liquid inlet for the lauter tun is at the bottom, just above the filter plates. You’ll need to fill the area below the plates with water prior to transfer of the mash. The wort grant out of the lauter tun has been designed to stop a vacuum being created between grain bed and tank bottom.
There’s a sight glass installed to make checking vorlauf and wort transfer easy, as well as a level sensor control for liquid flow control.
The kettle has both bottom and side steam jackets for even steam distribution. There’s also an internal calandria installed to increase evaporation rate.
The brew kettle has an effective volume of 3,000 liters with a heat surface area of 6.6 meters squared. You can increase the temperature by 1 to 1.5°C per minute.
Whirlpool – Ex-Exhibition Brewhouse for Sale

There are two clear wort outlets, on the bottom and the cylinder. The bottom outlet has a wort dam installed. The vessel comes with a central spray nozzle to help remove hops when cleaning. The bottom outlet had a flow sensor installed too.
The heat exchanger is a plate and frame with a working pressure of 5 Bar. There’s an inline thermometer to check wort temperature. There’s also an inline yeast doser plus aeration unit for wort.
The aeration unit has steam and air filtration system so, you can use compressed air to aerate your wort. There’s also an inline air flow meter for checking air/O2 amount.
There is automatic water mixing for mashing and sparge. It works with diaphragm flow control for both hot and cold water. There’s inline temperature display plus digital flow meter with connection to PLC to have real time flow volumes and temps.
On the brewing platform there’s a wort sink between the brew kettle and lauter tun. It’s made of stainless steel, with a wort sampling jar can be chilled using city water. There’s a sink for washing and a backlit sight glass for viewing wort.

The brewhouse was manufactured by ZyBrew. I worked with them to install a 20HL system in Yunnan, China last year for a client. The installation went well and I was happy with the project overall.
