Industrial Minibrewery Breworx Oppidum

Brewery BREWORX Oppidum is the industrial minibrewery with the powerful six-vessel brewhouse for production up to six beer wort batches per day.

Microbreweries BREWORX Oppidum of our production did not get its name by accident. Oppidum is in Celtic a fortress in which the original settlers in the Czech Republic produced predecessor of beer.

Also the brewhouse BREWORX Oppidum reminds a fortress, which is not purposeless. The integration of all containers of the brewing process into a single unit on a common platform, as well as the complement of the brewhouse with a wort boiler and separate whirlpool tun, allows the most efficient beer production up to four simultaneously prepared batches.

Thanks to that the brewhouse enables the production of up to 6 batches of wort for 24 hours in the production of light bottom-fermented lager prepared by the decoction method, or even up to 8 batches for 24 hours in the production of top-fermented beers Western-style by the infusion method .

Efficient production of beer – economic management of energy, water and labor

brewhouse-breworx-oppidum-2000j-001With easy serviceability of all vessels of the brewhouse from one platform the brewer in his fortified settlement has a brewing technology constantly under control, without the need of frequent movement around the brewery. The small distance between the brewing and support vessels helps to minimize escapes of heat and its efficient recovery.

Unlike stand-alone containers the integrated solution of the brewhouse has further advantage of significant savings in space for the brewhouse which the brewery occupies, when calculated per hectolitre of beer produced. Planned daily production corresponds with a large-scale fermentation and maturing tanks.

Like the brewhouse, in the same area of the brewery in the tanks there can be located substantially more beer than would be possible with a classically solved brewery. This makes the area of a brewery cellar maximally used, and allows the production of larger quantities of beer on the layout area.

 

The brewhouse BREWORX OPPIDUM  includes in standard :

  • 1-phase mash kettle – vessel for mixing malt meal with warm water and splitting starch to form a sugar solution
  • 2-phase mash kettle  – kettle for boilingand for cleave the starch to form a sugar solution
  • filtration tank – (lauter tun) – for filtering of wort
  • wort storage tank – vessel for storage of wort and keeping its temperature
  • wort kettle – vessel for boiling of wort with hops
  • whirlpool tank – for separation of hop dregs from wort
  • laboratory sink
  • control panel
  • platform with steps
  • all pipes and wires connections
  • all mechanically and automatically controlled valves and armatures
  • electric switchboard cabinet
  • control computer (only version with AC control system)

Three variants of micro breweries BREWORX OPPIDUM – different fermentation methods

We produce minibreweries BREWORX OPPIDUM in three variants of the main fermentation and arrangement of the tank storage.

Closed fermentationMicrobreweries BREWORX OPPIDUM CF

Fermentation and maturation in sealed cylindrical-conical tanks is an effective and modern way of producing beer, which is highly resistant to contamination of fermenting beverages with unwanted organisms. Precision control of the fermentation and maturation leads to permanent results of constant quality and sensory characteristics of the beer. This scheme of brewery is particularly suitable for the production of top-fermented beers, but it is possible to produce all types of bottom-fermented beer too.

Open fermentationMicrobreweries BREWORX OPPIDUM OF

Fermentation and maturation in open fermentation vats is the traditional way of producing beer, especially for the typical bottom-fermented Czech type of beer . This allows collection of quilts during the fermentation. A fascinating look at many forms and colors of the yeast foam will be appreciated by guests on excursions to the brewery. This scheme of brewery is suitable only for the production of bottom-fermented beers. Production of top fermented beer in open fermentation vats is quite demanding and is therefore not recommended .

Open and closed fermentationMicrobreweries BREWORX OPPIDUM OCF

The combined solution enables production of bottom and top-fermented beer. Minibrewerie contains of open fermentation tubs (optimal for the traditional method of bottom-fermented beers) and cylindro-conical tanks (particularly suitable for the production of top fermented beers). Beer maturation takes place in lager tanks, or it is possible to use instead of lager tanks other cylindro-conical tanks for maturation process. The solution particularly suitable for restaurant minibreweries where the brewer plans to manufacture both bottom and top fermented beers .

CONTROL SYSTEM FOR BREWERY BREWORX OPPIDUM

Control system for brewery BreworxI . Control system level MC (manual control):

A manual control of a brewhouse, simple push-button control panel with basic control and sensing elements. Manually adjusted pipeline routes, switching of motors and pumps, temperature and times are watched by the brewer .

 

II . Control system level AC (automatic control) :

Automatically controlled brewhouse – with most computer- controlled operations – according to the specifications from a central control panel. The control panel is designed as a touchscreen. The brewer selects the recipe and starts the program that fully controls the production process. The brewer controls it and performs laboratory tests, treats abnormal conditions and ensures the preparation and the brewing of raw materials for the process.
