Design for a 500 liter system
« on: February 14, 2010, 11:50:00 AM »
I am now starting to plan a 500 liter (about 130 gallons) system. (up from my current 50 liter system).
Does anybody have a design for this size of system - or the names of  suppliers/manufactures??
All, and any, advice is very welcome.
thanks

Why?
You are going to hit your limit in no time.

I like home brewing so I can make & have fresh beer all year.  If I only brewed twice a year, there would be a lot of stale beer much of the time.
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

Hmmm 500 liters... That's a 4 bbl output or 133 gallons. One batch and over the limit. Planning on starting up a brewpub or restaurant?

I do about 50 liters at a time as well. Makes plenty of beer. I can see doing 100 liters with a new kettle and tun upgrade...

Judging from some of the OP's contributions to other threads, that's exactly what he's doing.  If I remember correctly, he's starting a microbrewery in Israel.

The Design for a 500 liter system small-scale system which has evolved from various architectural, engineering, biological, and biohazard considerations. The smaller system is composed of spinner flasks modified for semicontinuous culture conditions, metal reservoirs, a continuous flow centrifuge, and supportive equipment. The large system which is under construction is composed of metallic vessels of up to 500 liter working volume with hard plumbing.Thanks.
