More details of the system are in order. Here’s a whole system shot:


The equipment used to brew the beer is called the brewhouse:


The brewhouse consists of one tank used to mash and lauter (mash/Lauter tun) and one tank used to boil and seperate out the solids before fermentation (Brew kettle/ Whirlpool) separated by a work platform and control panel.

Here’s the Mash/Lauter tun with an inside shot of the mixing paddle and screens that support the grain while the sugar water (sweet wort) is drawn away from below for boiling….


And here’s a shot of the Brew Kettle/Whirlpool…This is a big tank!



Moving the beer around the system takes a few pumps and process piping….


 The Cellar is the equipment used to ferment and age the beer. Currently, the (512) cellar consists of three fermentation vessles with lots of room for expansion!


Overall, the (512) brewing setup is close to being ready…A few hot pipes from the boiler and cold pipes from the chiller and we’ll be off and running. Ok, there’s still quite a bit of work to do, but we’re closing in….
