… easy production of beer from malt extract

Minibrewery BREWORX LITE ME is a minibrewery from serie BREWORX LITE.
The brewery has a simplified brewhouse with construction what allows beer production from malt concentrates ( malt extracts ) and also from wort concentrates. It does not allows beer production from traditional raw materials (malt, hops and water).

Characteristics of microbrewery BREWORX LITE ME

Brewhouse Breworx LiteMEThe solution particularly suitable for restaurant microbreweries, where the brewhouse dominates the area for guests, but the brewer wants to produce beer with less demand of time, energy and more economically than required by the traditional method of brewing that begin crushing the malt. Microbrewery BREWORX LITE ME compared to  classical arrangement of brewhouse does not allows beer production from classic raw materials. Malt is replaced by malt extract, what is a concentrate for easy mixing in the water to obtain wort. This eliminates most difficult phases of the brewing process of beer production as mashing and lautering.After obtaining wort the process continues hops boiling and whirlpooling. This allows the production of many types of beer from one concentrate selecting different hops boiling.

Solution of the Brewhouse allows easy and clear operation of the brewing process where the brewmaster has all the necessary measuring and control equipments at hand and production cycle in full control.

What is malt concentrate? (Malt Extract)

Malt extract

Malt concentrate is extract made from the malt, which is actually pulverized and thoroughly boiled in drinking water.  Thickening of wort has been eventually reached in technologically unique evaporators, where boiling and evaporating is reached at a temperature 45°C, which is not damaging main component of wort extract- malt sugar or maltose- caramelisation.

Malt extract  (basicly just another name for malt contrate) are made without the use of chemical additives (extractions agent, artifiacial enzymes, preservatives, stabilisators, etc… ) they usually have honey consistency and expiration date 6-12 months. Easy to transport and storage because of airtight covers.

 

 

Advantages of wort microbrewery with one vessel brewhouse

  •           Possibility to brew all kinds of beer from different wort concentrates
  •           Possibility to obtain different kinds of taste, color and smell of beer by different way of hops   boiling,      even by using one kind of concentrate
  •           Lower investment cost to the brewery- construction of brewhouse is easier therefore manufacture is cheaper
  •           Less facilities in the brewery (no malt mill)
  •           Produced beer has always same quality
  •           Producition process of malt takes 2-3 hours, what is 8-12 hours less than in production of beer from traditional raw materials
  •           Significant simplification of production:
  •           Low technological skills of the staff requirements
  •           Low operating brewery cost
  •           No weighing and milling malt; no mashing and sieving malt
  •           Low energy and water cost
  •           No problems with malt management (an advantage for minibreweries in the city center)
  •           Lower cost of transportation wort extract than traditional raw materials
  •           Low requirements for hygiene and environment of storaging (not necessary dry aired storage; no problems with rodents)

A special variant of microbrewery LITE ME

interiery-mobbeer1-smallMini breweries Breworx Lite MEMobile container microbreweries MOBBEER LITE ME

Compact container brewery with simplified brewhouse, designed for the production of beer from malt extract (kind of beer concentrate). Installation of the whole or part of the minibrewery in to the container simplifies operation, makes faster delivery of the minibrewery, save the cost of instalation work, makes easier moving to another location by changing place for summer to winter season.


 

Three variants of micro breweries BREWORX LITE ME – different fermentation methods

We produce minibreweries BREWORX LITE ME in three variants of the main fermentation and arrangement of the cellar.

Closed fermentationMicrobreweries BREWORX LITE ME 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 LITE ME 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 LITE ME 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 .
