Hi from The Isle of Tiree, Scotland

Hi,
Born again brewer. Now been brewing (again) three very busy years. We run a HMRC registered pico-brewery from our restaurant. I have used four Speidel 30l fv's flat out for our brews (beer and cider) Now planning to upgrade the brewery to bigger adjacent premises and develop our kit from my 50l BIAB and HLME system. I love my Brewbuilder BIAB set up and the fact that it fits so well with our businesses environmental ethos. Just looking to go bigger!

I have a year to decide on kit while I demolish wall and build my bigger brewery. Still not sure whether it will be a Camurri Brauer or Speidel though,,, ;o)

Welcome aboard.

Thats an interesting choice - I thought you were going to say between a 50 and a 200?

I am off to read up about Camurri Brauer . back soon.

PS. I see what you did there - nice!

Well that didn't take long. I am impressed. Like the bluetooth. Like the industrial build.

I have to say I am biased - I have Italian wine-making equipment.

I would try and find someone with a Camurri Brauer to see one live.

Are you sure its a 50? and not a 200?

Hi All,
Our brewery will be a 200l system eventually. We cannot go larger as we only have an initial permission from SEPA to limit the brewery waste discharge to 400l per week from our septic tank with pre-treatment and settling in holding tanks. Water usage is a big concern for us. We have been advised that a conventional 3 pot cask brewery would be doing well to achieve a 3/1 ratio of water to finished product. Although we have 14 x 25l Cornies, I'm also considering 30l Ecofass kegs as the bags reduce sanitisation.
The negative problem with the Camurri is the wort chilling requiring a PHE or no-chill (I use 25kg J/C's with my BIAB) I like the Speidel system as I have a great glycol chiller for my bar. Also considering a 300-400l calorifier to store extracted wort heat?

Good find. I did find a couple of guys doing the "tipping it in top " jobbies.

I do like the design, and Brevetti should know there stuff. but I doubt I will change....unless my gen 1 BM explodes!

Do you mean with a drop in chiller coil? I 've seen a Camurri video that show it being used with a PHE, but I have reservations about the effective sanitisation of them and CIP. The Camurri does not have wort re-circulation either. But I could use an external pump,,,, It's all a future project development.
First things first! Still awaiting our planning application to pass validation,,,, :o(
