Micro Breweries Explained
We have been manufacturing micro’s for over 20 years and gained a vast amount of experience producing over 300 breweries/1500 vessels. We make all the Brewhouse vessels which include Hot & Cold Liquor Tanks, Mash Tuns and Copper vessels.
We also make Fermenting vessels, Conditioning and Bright Beer Tanks all produced in capacities from 1 barrel/160Ltr up to 15 barrel/2400Ltr. These are usually all at set dimensions to fit sheet sizes to keep costs down, but vessels can be changed to fit individual needs.
As our history shows we are keep quite busy with orders from the industry but we can usually supply within 6/8 weeks from receipt of order/deposit. We do not get involved with any installation work or the brewing itself but we produce all the vessels with pipework/fittings to the customer requirements.
The vessels are made in house using western European 304 grade stainless Steel. Our vessels can be supplied without insulation/cladding (to save on costs) or can be insulated/cladded in stainless steel by ourselves. Our vessels are all manufactured and fully welded by our qualified time served workers.
A full price list for all standard tanks and capacities can be given after your enquiry. Brewers wanting to install a micro to their own specification will find our prices very competitive.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is pipework included?
Yes if you need it. Most new installations will require pipework.
Is everything manufactured by you?
Just about! Some of the fixtures and fittings we buy in, but fitting brackets and supports we manufacture.
What size do I need ?
One of the main decisions when purchasing a micro brewery system is the capacity. That is down to planning, and the expected market for your intended brew.
We have become a specialist in the fabrication of stainless steel tanks and vessels.
Many of these tanks and vessels are for the micro brewing industry and include Fermenting Vessels, Mash Tuns, Coppers and Hot Liqueur Tanks. We have produced the vessels in capacities from 1 barrel to 20 barrels.
Stainless Steel thickness varies from 1.5mm for smaller tanks up to 6mm for the larger tanks.
