Microbrewery Equipment Ireland

Microbrewery Equipment in Ireland

As the Irish agents for Speidel, setting up a microbrewery has never been easier or more affordable. And you can make beer for as little as 0.20 euro cents per pint including energy costs. The process used to be complex with startup costs escalating quickly. Not with Speidel solutions, which are simple to install and operate. They are the top choice for microbreweries in Ireland. They are perfect for producing 10,000 to 250,000 litres of beer per anum. The best part for any microbrewery though is that with Speidel microbrewery equipment, you can make virtually any beer style.

What to Expect When Setting up a Speidel

Microbrewery in Ireland

Below we have outlined some microbrewery configurations, based on annual capacity and the number of brew days per week. A complete microbrewery capable of producting 50,000 litres per anum can be built for as little as 25,000 euros including kegs. Doubling that capacity is simply a matter of adding fermentation tanks and kegs so that a 100,000 litre system doesn't cost that much more.

Space requirements are remarkably low, as low as 150 square feet of floor space. Speidel microbrewery solutions allow you to build a microbrewery in an incremental way so that you don't have to risk as much of your hard earned cash until you are sure that the business is going to work for you. In August 2013, we visited a Speidel microbrewery in Germany to view how simple installation and operation was (see  Homebrew News) for a write up on the visit.

We supply Speidel equipment and we also supply Muntons ingredients to microbreweries. The Speidel Braumeister 200 litre and 500 litre models are particularly suitable for microbrewery beer production, while the smaller 20 litre and 50 litre models are perfect for recipe development, and small production runs.

Advantages of the Speidel

Microbrewery Equipment

A particular advantage is the fairly revolutionary, simple and leak-free use of the Speidel system. The main difference is the malt no longer being washed out through an agitator, but by a gentle re-circulating pump treatment of the wort. Mashing, purifying and hop boiling are all done in one single kettle. The control is fully automatic and can be programmed according to the specific recipe.

The Speidel Braumeister is designed for a brewing process of approximately 20, 50, 200 or 500  litres of beer. All sorts of bear such as wheat beer, pale or amber ale, Maerzen beer (a German sort of dark strong beer) and many others, can be brewed.

Multi temperature mashing can be easily programmed, giving access to just about any beer style ever made. The Speidel Braumeister takes care of wort production and hopping. The next step is fermentation and Speidel are world renowned for their stainless steel fermenters.

Please note that these units must be ordered in from Germany and delivery can take 4 to 6 weeks. This is a fraction of the timeline competitors offer (6 months is typical).

Kegging Solutions for

Microbreweries in Ireland

One of the biggest issues for a microbrewery in Ireland is whether to supply kegs, bottles, or both. FIlling kegs is easier but suppporting kegs in the field is difficult unless you have a mobile team to clean installed taps and beer lines.

One solution is to work with other microbreweries and share this burden. Speidel offer a full kegging solution. If you are thinking about brewing beer for your own restaurant or pub, kegging is the perfect solution.

Shipping cases of bottles is a lot easier since field support is not really required, but filling sediment free bottles is not supported by Speidel. Bottle sterilizing / filling / labeling equipment is expensive. It is typically the most expensive equipment in a microbrewery.

Agents for Brouwland and Speidel

HomeBrewWest are also agents for http://www.brouwland.com/en/ who supply a very wide range of bottle fillers including B-Tech Base counter pressure filler systems. In addition, they supply commercial steam cleaning equipment and all the other equipment fthat you might need in your microbrewery.
