Brewers – Don’t forget the boiler!

Posted on

Purchasing a boiler is one of the most important investments for a brewery. The boiler lies at the heart of your brewery as it supplies all the steam. The steam provides all the needs for heating up anything in the brewery:

“The biggest use is for boiling the full volume of beer with the hops.
We have 50 or more uses of steam around the brewery because there’s lots of little tanks and equipment that need heating up for cleaning etc. and to put a little system in for each would be extraordinarily expensive.”
-Andrew Leman, Timothy Taylors

Steam is of course, the best heating option. It heats up efficiently and is controlled. Other benefits include:
• High-quality dry steam is vital to producing the best quality beer.
• If you can afford the upfront capital cost, steam is a lot cheaper than electricity to run. If you have an existing boiler that’s 10-15 years old, then upgrading to a more efficient boiler will also reduce your running costs. As soon as the more efficient operation has paid back your initial cost, you’re laughing!

“Since the new boiler, it’s about 13% less gas to brew the same amount of beer (which subsequently reduces the company’s carbon footprint)”
-Andrew Leman, Timothy Taylors
