Technical specifications of brewhouse BREWORX LITE ME

Construction of brewhouse BREWORX LITE ME

The Brewhouse BREWORX LITE ME enables the production of virtually all known types of beer by Czech and foreign recipes from wort concentrate or malt extract. It does not allow beer production from traditional ingredients. The brewhouse is suited for the production of high-quality light bottom-fermented pilsner beer and all kinds of top-fermented beers .

An external appearance of the brewhouse BREWORX LITE ME imitates design of the brewhouse BREWORX CLASSIC. Therefore, it can be used as an interior brewhouse as well.

A typical feature of microbreweries BREWORX LITE ME is two-vessels brewhouse, built on a common frame. The brewhouse contains a wort kettle, hot water tank, whirlpool , wort chiller , laboratory sink and a control panel . The brewhouse are available in several design variants. See DESIGN VARIANTS OF BREWHOUSE BREWORX .

Volume of daily production brewhouse is up to 8 brews per 24 hours .

Brewhouse Description

The brewhouse is the main part of each brewery. It is a food machine whose primary function is the production of beer wort. The wort is an intermediate product. The next phase of the production cycle is fermentation and maturation of wort. This raises the final product – beer.

czech-product-001The BREWORX LITE-ME  is the simplified brewhouse with similar design like BREWORX CLASSIC . But it is designed for production of beer wort only from a malt extract or wort concentrate (water, wort concentrate or malt extract, hops, brewer’s yeast). Warning : This model of the brewhouse is not equipped for production of beer wort from traditional raw materials (malt instead concentrate).

 

Benefits of using brewhouse BREWORX Lite-ME

  • Easy production of wort without having years of operator´s experience
  • Easy to achieve a stable quality of beer without the influence of variable quality of raw materials
  • The malt mill is not needed as part of the brewery – safe costs, no problems with storage and preparation of malt grist
  • Short learning time for workers in the production process of quality beer
  • Possibility of almost complete automation of wort production, which in the production of beer from traditional materials is not economicaly possible
  • Significant savings in labor, especially in the automatic version of the brewhouse
  • Considerable energy savings up to 50% in the production of wort concentrate
  • Reducing the volume of solid waste production by up to 90% – there are no malted grains
  • Lower purchase price of microbrewery
  • Faster return on investment

The singleblock brewhouse BREWORX LITE-ME is a compact machine which includes all necessary equipment to produce 150-1000 liters of beer wort from beer concentrates in one batch. It is two-vessels brewhouse. This we have achieved full functionality brewing while we retained the traditional design of the Czech type brewhouse which is ideal for producing of world-famous Czech type beer. However, this brewhouse is fully capable for manufacturing all types of beer, which are offered beer concentrates for.

 

The brewhouse BREWORX LITE-ME  includes in standard :

  • mash tun – kettel for boiling
  • whirlpool – 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 SA control system)

 

 

Options and properties

 

Two kinds of beer concentrate for production of wort :

  • Wort concentrate : Wort concentrate + drinking water + brewer’s yeast + (optionally other ingrediences)
  • Malt extract : Malt extract + hops + drinking water + brewer’s yeast + (optionally other ingrediences)

Four production capacities of the brewhouse :

  • 150-1000 liters of beer wort per day – one batch for 12 hour
  • 300-2000 liters of beer wort per day – two batches for 24 hour
  • 450-3000 liters of beer wort per day – three batches for 12 hour
  • 600-4000 liters of beer wort per day – four batches for 24 hour

 

Two available designs :

  • SD – Stainless steel design – all vessels are fully made of stainless steel AISI 304
  • CD – Copper design – all main parts are made of stainless steel AISI 304, only outer sheath and hats of containers are made of copper.

Two available heating systems :

  • EH – Electric heating – the heating of kettel is performed by electric heating elements without the use of heat transfer fluid. This variation of the brewhouse needn´t a steam generator.
  • SH – Steam heating – the heating of kettel is performed by hot steam produced by steam generator. Heating by hot steam significantly speeds up the boiling process and it is better for the heated wort (no caramelization of malt extract). This system requires a connection of the brewhouse to electric, gas or pellet steam generator that is not included in the brewhouse (see an optional accessories).

 

Two available control systems :

  • MC – Manual control– the brewhouse is manually operated with the support of computer application that guides the user step by step through the production process. Heating of the brewhouse, stirrer speed, the pump running are controlled from a central control panel.
  • AC – Automatic control – automatically controlled brewhouse supported by industrial computer which automatically controls the production of wort and requires little user´s interaction. Features such as heating of the brewhouse, stirrer speed, pumps running, valves and control valves are computer controlled and adjusted to a central control panel with touchscreen.

 

Why choose AC system for brewing control ? Main reasons are :

  • Elimination of human errors – machine accurately and timely perform necessary tasks
  • Costs saving for owner – only one worker is necessary for manipulating in the brewery
  • Minimize the number of error conditions in the brewery – everything is still under control
  • Monitoring and registration of the production process into the computer memory
  • Minimization of requirements for constant operator attention – early reaction of machine
  • Stable quality of beer – standard manufacturing procedures are always observed
  • Six pre-programmed recipes – for production of the most known types of beer : Pils, Lager, Black, Weissenbeer, Ale, Special
  • Manual brewing mode – for production of all other types of beer
  • Special sanitation mode – for automatic cleaning,sanitizing and sterilization of the brewhouse, wort pipes, armatures and other brewery equipment

 

Recommendation :

We emphatically recommend choose the automatic brewhouse control system for this type of brewhouse and also the automatic control system for media and fermentation & maturation process !

The computer brewhouse automatic control system always ensures the right brewing operations timing without damaged wort batches.

brewhouse-automatic-control-auv1-control-panel

The automatic control system for media and fermentation & maturation process allows automatic monitoring and controlling of the most important parts of beer fermentation and maturation process (from 1 to 30 tanks max) and operations with media.
