Most licensees don’t consider installing microbrewery kit because of conventional brewing equipment limitations. Here are just some of the objections that DigiBrew® overcomes.
I don’t have any knowledge of brewing:
“Nobody in my business knows anything about brewing beer”. That’s fine you don’t need to! The DigiBrew® MICROBREWERY will guide you every step of the way. Our control software and unique hexagonal brewing kettle ensures a full rolling boil without any cool pockets or scorching of wort. A small amount of onsite training will take you from novice to brewer in no time at all. Our pre-weighed and measured ingredients and on screen instructions will help you deliver repeatable quality craft ales every time.
Microbrewery Kit Is Expensive, the outlay is too much:
“I cannot afford the investment required to purchase microbrewery kit and employ a brewer”. We understand this completely! With conventional brewery manufacturers quoting in excess of £50,000 for a 5 Brewers Barrel system. Conventional brewery equipment doesn’t come with an operator either! The DigiBrew® MICROBREWERY brews one firkin (cask-72 pints) at a time. This gives you great control of stock and a production capacity to suit your outlets needs. One cask (firkin) takes approximately 1hr 50 minutes to produce. The size and amount of equipment needed ensures that the DigiBrew® MICROBREWERY system is a viable investment for even the smallest pub or bar. You will get a quick return on investment even with modest brewing volumes.
There isn’t enough room in the premises:
“We don’t have the space”. DigiBrew® MICROBREWERY kit is 900mm high x 1020mm wide x 600mm deep. Our system will fit in most kitchens, storerooms or cellars. All that is needed is electricity (single phase), water and drainage to become your own in-house brewery. To brew ten casks per week you will need approximately 6m² of fermenting space. Fermentation takes place in a rooms/cupboard which is temperature controlled at 21°C. Once fermenting is complete the beer is moved to the cellar. The beer needs to chill for approximately three days. Once chilled it is transferred to cask. From brew to cask takes seven days.
It will take up too much of my valuable time:
“We don’t have the time!” In the same way you manage your time between daily operations like cellar management, staff issues, stock control, etc. The DigiBrew® MICROBREWERY kit can brew great beer whilst you concentrate on running your business. The DigiBrew® MICROBREWERY just needs your help to add the ingredients and will then brew and watch over your brew while you carry on with duties elsewhere. Brewing status updates are fed to your Smartphone enabling you to monitor the brew progress remotely via your pubs Wi-Fi network.
I want to be sure the quality is good enough:
“My beer is my reputation”. Quality fresh brewing ingredients are supplied by Craftmaster® Microbrew which are pre-prepared and ready to use.
