Equipment for optimal craft beer brewing
The craft of making beer blends complex processes with creative artistry. Bridging the gap between brewing theory and practical craft brewing comes from the experience to spot signs of trouble and the knowhow to respond to them. This is where combining expertise can yield benefits stretching from the brewhouse to packaging. Issues can be controllable and avoidable, given the right brewing equipment and the right application.

Boston Beer Company
One of the first things we installed was an Alfa Laval Brew separator. Alfa Laval was also willing to take on much of the project management. They successfully managed the full process and were there for us throughout with technical support.

The Iso-Mix system provides us with a fast, consistent way of adjusting CO2 content and gravity as well as making other additions that ensure less manual labour and reduced risk of delays in our packaging operations.
Al Marzi, Vice President and Chief Brewing Officer, Harpoon Brewery, USA
With just one compact Brew 80 unit, you can allow yourself to be more creative. Now it’s only your imagination that is the limiting factor in terms of experimenting with flavours. This equipment has proved to be more versatile than we had imagined, and it gives a great boost to our creative, unconventional approach to brewing, and products that really get noticed in a crowded market.

Rebellion Beer Company
I believe that craft brewing on a relatively small scale as we do, is still a traditional art creating distinctive characterful beers using the time-honoured brewing methods but coupled with elements of modern technology, such as the Brew 80.

Hear from our customer
According to Art Oestrike, president at Jackie O's, "Barrel ageing beers is a fickle business. You take this big, beautiful imperial stout or barley wine and throw it into a freshly dumped bourbon barrel and let it sit in our warehouse. A year and a half after packaging it, they start to turn sour. They don't taste good."
Watch the video to hear how Flexitherm Mini 'flipped the barrel aging programme on its head'.
