Craft beer equipment is self-brewed beer with the most characteristic and artistic flavor. The Brewing Association defines artisanal brewers as small, independent and traditional brewers. Emphasis is placed on all or almost entirely brewed from malt, without the dilution of excipients such as corn or rice.
The brew house is the beating heart of your brewing operation. A weak, inefficient heart cannot be exerted and doesn’t last. A durable and efficient brew house from Ruijia Brewing Company ensures your brewery every opportunity to thrive. We outfit small brew pubs to regional breweries from 5bbl to 40bbl. We understand that each brewer has his, or her own brewing methodology and budgetary requirements, therefore Ruijia offers varying levels of automation and customization of two, three and four vessel brew house configurations.

A typical four-vessel brewhouse will include a Mash tun, Lauter Tun, Kettle and Whirlpool. Each of these tanks is dedicated to performing a single process, and is designed differently than similar vessel used for performing multiple processes.
Four-vessel systems offer the highest throughput and the most versatility. With proper vessel sizing, well laid out hard piping, and well-designed controls these brewhouses can be extremely large and only require one person to operate it. The ability to make more beer with less labor input, paired with gains in efficiency and quality control make the four-vessel brewhouse a worth while investment for breweries that intend to produce a lot of beer.
The alternative to a four-vessel production based brewhouse with dedicated process tanks, is two and three vessel systems with tanks that preform multiple processes. These combination tanks can be a more affordable way to start a brewery, they take up less floor space, and depending on your production goals, they might be able to last your business a very long time.
Combination Mash Lauter Tuns are the first combination vessel in these smaller brewhouses line ups. This vessel should be sized to favor the Lauter operation, and have the mechanics for mixing mash and graining out.
Next inline is the combination of the Kettle and Whirlpool tanks. This combination vessel is designed and sized for being primarily a kettle, but is equipped with a tangential fitting for whirlpooling.
