Technical description of the NANOBEER brewing system

Equipment for the production of beer wort

I. Brewhouse NANOBEER NB-50

Brewhouse NANOBEER NB-50 is designed to production 50 liters (from 20 to 60 liters) beer wort using the infusion brewing method, from grinded malt, hops and water, alternativelly from wort concentrates. We deliver the brewhouse in two versions :

I. a) Brewhouse Nanobeer NB-50SJ – the brewing vessel is not insulated (basic model with emphasis on the lowest possible cost while maintaining comfort work)

I. b) Brewhouse Nanobeer NB-50DJ – the brewing vessel is insulated, double-walled (preferably less power consumption and shorter duration of wort)

  • Two heating elements for heating and maintaining
  • Two practical handles for easy transport and movement.

Benefits :

  • Very easy to use, clean and maintain.
  • Wide range of optionals will help you to elaborate the production of your handcrafted beers
  • In support of the unit, we can supply a wide range of accessories (hop filters, cooling and conic fermentation tanks, cooling
    plate heat exchangers, ..) which will guide you into a perfect brewing!
  • It is essential for small breweries, home brewers, pubs, agritourisms, catering institutes and for any activities which needs to
    promote its artisanal recipe.

Equipment for fermenting wort and its transformation to a final drink – beer

The wort (produced before in the Nanobeer brewhouse) is cooled down  (see procedure below) and filled it into the fermentation tank. There beer  fermentation and maturation is processing – the wort is transformed to the beer during several weeks. We need some stainless steel vessel with the fermentation lock for this and the special pressure vessel for maturation of beer.

 

Fermentation technology in the Nanobeer BNB-51

nanobeer-50-microbreweries-001In our the smallest breweries Nanobeer BNB-51 we solve the fermenation and maturation process using very simple cheap equipment. With regard to the possible maximum cost reduction of the brewery equipment the BNB-51 breweries are equipped with  very simple cylindrical-conical tanks without insulation and without cooling jacket. Cooling tanks is realized by a spiral tube heat exchanger which is inserted inside the tank and immersed in the fermenting wort. The heat exchanger is connected to a water cooler with a simple heat control. After fermentation wort the green beer must be pumped into plastic PET bottles (we recommend to use customized bottles for carbonated beverages) and store these in a dedicated fridge with adjustable temperature around 1 ° C. Beer in PET bottles is matured for a specified period, whereby it is necessary periodically to blow carbon dioxide from bottles, to prevent overstressing increasing pressure and the explosion of bottles. The “amateur” approach is often used in homebrewing, which is the production of beer at home.

 

 

Fermentation technology in the Nanobeer  BNB-52/54, BNB-201/202/203

nanobeer-microbreweries-006In all other Nanobeer microbreweries we solve the beer fermentation and maturation technology using the semi-professional equipment, which is with its properties very close professional equipment that is usualy used in medium and big minibreweries. Wort fermentation and subsequent maturation takes place in cylindrical tanks with simplified design, which are equipped with cooling duplicators, presure release valve, sample cock , sanitation sprayball,  fittings for discharging yeast and beer, inspection manhole (optionally also other equiment like level indicator, carbonation stone, temperature regulators etc.) These simplified cylindroconical tanks are not insulated, cooling duplicators are located only on its cylindrical part, which is completely sufficient for the production of beer in small volumes. Yet it is possible additionally insulate the simplified cylindrical-conical tanks sticking special insulating materials based on polyurethane or neoprene – this can reduce the energy consumption of fermentation and ripening process by up to 70%. There is possible to equip Nanobeer breweries with professional fermenting and maturing tanks  CCT classic that meet the highest demands for efficient production of beer at the lowest possible operating costs.

 

 

 

 

decoction-beer-brewing-process-01Description of the brewing process with the Nanobeer brewhouse :

  1. PROGRAMMING – Depending on the recipe, the NANOBEER brewhouse is programmed with the appropriate brewing times. The brewing process starts by switching over to automatic brewing. The control system guides the user through the various steps and executes the four brewing phases automatically.
  2. MASHING – Depending on the recipe and method, water is poured in and heated up to 38 °C. Then the malt pipe with the sieve inserts is put in position. Malt is poured between the sieve inserts. The malt pipe is fixed with bracket and drawbar.
  3. MASHING / BREWING – The pump switches on. Due to the resulting  water / wort  circulation, he starch is extracted from the malt. The four brewing phases
    are executed as programmed, for example as follows:

    1.  Protein rest 55 °C,  approximately  5 min
    2.  Maltoserast 63 °C,  approximately  30 min
    3. Saccrification rest 72 °C,  approximately  20 min
    4. Saccrification rest 78 °C,  approximately  10 min
  4. LAUTERING – At the end of the four phases an acoustic signal sounds. The subsequent lautering process is quickly executed by simply removing the malt pipe. In the case of the NB-200 this is done by means of the lifting device. Allow to drain a few minutes and remove – if necessary, pour water through the malt (sparge) to achieve a better yield.
  5. BOILING HOPS – With the lid open, the wort is boiled for 80 minutes with hops being added several times. The evaporated water is to be replaced by adding
    fresh brewing water. The original gravity can be finally adjusted by adding or leaving out water. The drawbar on the Nanobeer serves as a level meter. At the end of the boiling phase, an acoustic signal sounds again.
  6. FERMENTATION / MATURATION PROCESS – Immediately after the boiling of the wort the temperature of the wort is brought to the level of the fermentation temperature using a wort cooler or using a double jacket; the wort is also mixed with yeast and fermented in a suitably large tank (accessory).
  7. CONSUMING – After several weeks of storage in bottles or in a maturing tank (accessory), the well cooled beer can be consumed.
