What Ingredents And Equipment Do I Need for Micro Commercial Brewing?

Brewing beer can be a rewarding hobby that allows you to create your own unique flavors and styles. 

Here's a basic overview of the brewing process:



Water: Use clean, preferably filtered water.

Grains: Typically malted barley, but other grains like wheat, oats, or rye can also be used.

Hops: Adds bitterness, flavor, and aroma to the beer.

Yeast: Ferments the sugars from the grains into alcohol and carbon dioxide.

Optional: Additional flavorings such as fruits, spices, or herbs.


Beer Equipment:

Brew Kettle: A large pot for boiling the ingredients.

Fermenter: A vessel where the yeast will ferment the beer.

Spunding valves: Allows carbon dioxide to escape during fermentation without letting air in.

Transferring hose: Used for transferring beer between beer tanks.

Bottling Machine and keg filling machine and keg washing machine

Bottles or Kegs: For storing and serving the finished beer.

Thermometer: To monitor the temperature during brewing.


Brewing Processing:

1. Mashing:

Crush the grains and soak them in hot water (around 150-160°F or 65-71°C) in your brew kettle. 

This brewing process, called mashing, activates enzymes in the grains that convert starches into fermentable sugars.

Maintain this temperature for about an hour to allow the enzymes to work.


2. Boiling:

After mashing, bring the mixture to a boil.

Add hops at different times during the boil to achieve desired bitterness and flavor. 

Hops added early contribute more bitterness, while hops added late contribute more aroma.

Boil the mixture for about an hour, then remove from heat.


3. Cooling:

Cool the mixture quickly to around 68-72°F (20-22°C) to prepare for fermentation. 

You can use a wort chiller or an ice bath for this purpose.


4. Fermentation:

Transfer the cooled mixture (now called wort) to a sanitized fermenter.

Add yeast to the fermenter and seal it with an airlock.

Place the fermenter in a cool, dark place and let it ferment for about 1-2 weeks. The yeast will consume the sugars, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide.


5. Bottling or Kegging:

Once fermentation is complete, the beer will be transferred into sanitized bottles or kegs.

In this process, we will need a bottling machine, keg washing machine and keg filling machine.

If bottling, add a small amount of priming sugar to carbonate the beer naturally.

Seal the bottles or kegs and let them carbonate for another week or two.


Remember, cleanliness and sanitation are crucial throughout the brewing process to prevent contamination and off-flavors in your beer. 

Also, don't be discouraged by any initial setbacks; brewing beer is as much an art as it is a science, and practice will improve your skills over time. Cheers!
