Hello, I’m Richard, owner and brewer at Penguin City Brewing Company. We chose Deutsche Beverage for our brewing system. Follow me as we explore our setup.

Right here, on the backside of the brewhouse, we have a 20-barrel brew house integrated with a 3.5-barrel system. This setup is fantastic because it shares the same HLT and CLT, which you can see in the hopper. You have the flexibility to divert it to either system. We also have small 3.5-barrel fermenters for pilot batches, while all our other vessels are 60 barrels. Typically, we perform three turns to fill one of these larger vessels.

There are some key features that I really appreciate about this system. One of them is the blending valve, allowing you to mix CLT and HLT seamlessly. You just dial in the desired ratio, and it handles the rest. The flow meters are equally convenient; you specify the amount you need, and it dispenses it accurately.

The auto knockout feature has been a game-changer. It’s recently been upgraded to include flow rate parameters, which greatly assist in maintaining hydrostatic pressure during the knockout process. This ensures that, when going in for the second and third turns, it’s almost a “set it and forget it” situation, allowing you to get within a degree of your target temperature effortlessly.

Another standout feature is the super sacks. Instead of laboriously tearing open numerous bags and straining your back, you simply dial in the amount you need, making the ingredient handling process far more efficient and easier on your body.

I also want to highlight the bright tanks, which feature two separate ports at the bottom. One is for packaging, and the other is a 1.5-inch port. They also come equipped with a built-in standpipe, approximately a barrel in size. This ensures you never have to worry about any unwanted elements entering your finished product. Additionally, there’s a two-inch drain port in the center, adding to the convenience.

Ensuring consistency in your brews, we have a carbonation module. It includes a solenoid valve for the inlet and a flow meter for precise control of the carbonation levels. The pressure relief valve at the top has another solenoid valve that you can adjust to set the desired pressure. This feature allows you to maintain consistency, with carbonation levels very close to your target.

In summary, this brewing system has been a fantastic addition to our operation. It simplifies the brewing process, reduces manual labor, and enhances consistency. We’ve been delighted with the performance and features it offers. If you’re looking to optimize your brewery, this is certainly a system worth considering.
