The brewrocket uses a newly developed brewing process and impresses with its high-quality design. The system can be individually adapted to the design of your room and be configured according to your wishes. The fermentation unit can be set up separately from the system. Additional fermentation units allow for a simple, modular increase in the output quantity.
The complete fully automated system, which comprises a brewing unit, a fermentation unit and a barrel-filling unit, is available in various sizes.
Before starting brewing, the weighed and ground malt must be poured into the mash container (picture 1 below) and the weighed hops loaded into the automatic hops station (up to 4 loads dispensed per brew) (picture 2). After that, the yeast starter must be prepared and poured into the fermentation container (picture 3). Like the hops, the amount and type of yeast are matched to the selected beer. Finally, the barrel dispenser tap heads must be removed from the cleaning station and attached to the barrels (picture 4).
brewing and fermenting – the procedure
The brewing process is started simply by tapping the desired type of beer on the tablet. The system will now run fully automatically for approx. 2 ½ weeks. The control system is set up in such a way that additional brewhouses with a corresponding number of fermentation tanks can run during this time. The fermentation process first goes through a phase of warm fermentation and then cold fermentation. Once the fermentation process is complete, the beer is filled into the barrels under pressure so that you only need to remove the tap heads from the barrels and mount them back onto the cleaning station. In between, the brewing system is emptied of spent grains with a few hand grips and cleaned automatically in various steps, including the fermentation tanks and all the pipelines at a later time.
optional function of the fermentation unit
The fermentation unit can be optionally equipped with the colour signal function. The phases of the fermentation process are then displayed in different colours. White is the signal for standard, no fermentation process or ready. Red means that warm fermentation is currently active. If the cold fermentation phase starts, the light turns blue. If the fermentation process is finished, this becomes visible with a green colour signal.
