3D Brewery Models

Friday, November 5th, 2010

Can never have too many 3D brewery models. Here are a couple more where you can check out our updated brewery layout and see how it all fits together.

Brewery Layout and Floor Plans – Initial Setup Design

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The Brew Captain created a 3D model of our brewery in Solid Works. We use this brewery layout and floor plan to:

a) Develop the most efficient brewery layout.
b) Show our brewery to government officials to help pass regulation before starting construction.
c) Helps get accurate cost estimates for plumbing and other installations.
d) Help spec out accurate costs for all equipment needed.
e) Looks cool.

The Captain also created a labeled 2D floor plan areal view to put everything in perspective. (In PDF format here: Brewery Equipment Layout/Floor Plan )

Brewery Design #2

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

Just a few upgraded brewery designs for our 3bbl commercial system. Most notably different from the first design is moving the mash pump closer to the mash tun to improve pumping. This also allowed to move our heat exchanger to the left of the Lauter Tun, making the piping less convoluted. One step closer to buying this puppy.

Brewery Drawings & Parts

Some more drawings of our brewery that Chris slaved over.  Below is the brewery overview, parts list, overview with numbers that correspond to the parts list & and some awesome drawings of our mixers (though the latur tun rake will not be included in our final brewery purchase – at such small scale they add little to efficiency.)

Brewery Design #1

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Brew Captain Chris Enegren spent a few weeks drafting up our first brewery to send over to Rob at Primer Stainless for review and feedback.

From left to right on the overview diagrams, we have the HLT, Lauter Tun and Mash Kettle.

Two close up pictures: one of  the top of the Mash Kettle with focus on the mash mixer and the second focuses on the main brewery plumbing.
