We offer all of the main heating methods which are:

  1. Electrical
    We recommend electrical heating for brewhouses up to 840L/7BBL as above this size you start drawing serious power. It would be better to consider other options, but we will happily scale to larger brewhouses and HLTs depending on your needs.
  2. Direct-Fire
    We recommend direct-fire heating for brewhouses from 600L/5BBL as this gives enough area for the firebox under the vessels to work efficiently
  3. Steam

We recommend this option for all size breweries if you are able to fit the costs in your budget and the equipment in your space. You get the best heating efficiencies and are able to utilize the steam in other areas of the brewery.
