Brewing equipment refers to the vessels and tools used to make beer, which typically includes saccharification, fermentation, refrigeration, and clean-in-place systems. The brewery equipment includes milling equipment, brewhouse equipment, mash kettles, lauter tun, wort kettles, whirlpoolers, steam generators, aeration devices, hot liquor tanks, cold-water tanks, and laboratory equipment, cooling equipment, fermentation equipment, filtration & filling equipment, cleaning systems, grain silos, generators, and pipes. Storage equipment, compressors, fermentation equipment, cooling equipment, pumps, filters, and separators are also used in a brewery. Each piece of equipment has pre-determined functions, like, milling equipment is the first equipment that is used for the crushing of grains then the wort is sent to the brewhouse, where the wort is prepared for fermentation. The entire process is followed by aeration, fermentation, yeast separation from young beer, aging, maturing, and packaging. The complete brewing process is intended to turn grain starches into sugar, extract the sugar with water, and then ferment the sugar with yeast to create the alcoholic, lightly carbonated beverage.
