Title: BREWING ARRANGEMENT AND METHOD
Abstract:
Provided is a brewing system (10) comprising a brewhouse assembly (12) having a mash tun (14), a kettle (16), a filter (18) and wort chiller (20) arranged in fluid communication for brewing purposes. The brewhouse assembly (12) is configured to operatively produce wort from mash liquor. Wort produced by the brewhouse assembly (12) is generally stored in a transport container (22). The brewing system 10 further includes a plurality of fermentation assemblies (24) each arranged remotely from the brewhouse assembly (12). Each fermentation assembly (24) includes at least one fermenter (26) which is arranged in fluid communication with a plurality of bright beer tanks (28). Each fermenter (26) is operatively suppliable with wort from the transport container (22) and is configured to produce beer from the wort for subsequent storage in a bright beer tank (28). The brewing system (10) also includes a monitoring and control system (30) which comprises a plurality of sensors (32) for sensing brewhouse and fermentation assembly operating characteristics, a plurality of actuators (34) configured to remotely control the brewhouse and fermentation assemblies (12) and (24) to influence these respective operating characteristics, and some manner of remote interface (100) for receiving the sensed operating characteristics and instructing the actuators (34).
