1 bbl Nano Brewhouse by SS Brewhouse
When we began designing the 1 bbl Brewhouse we knew we didn’t want to simply scale up our home equipment line. Instead, we took everything we’ve learned designing, operating, and executing full size professional brewhouses around the country and scaled it down. The result of this approach is a professional grade nano brewhouse with no equal. Engineering better beer. That’s what we do.
We have designed the heat sources and electrical framework of the 1 BBL brewhouse to enable the brewer precise control over each temperature and process. At the core of that objective are independent heating elements for each vessel, allowing the user to dial in the perfect strike and sparge temp in the HLT, sustain or step mash temps through the integrated RIMS tube, or modulate the perfect rolling boil via the proportional heat control in the kettle.
Drawing from the brewer-centric design of our pro brewhouses lead us to the key design feature of this system, the valve tree. Placing all the critical process valves in one central location makes the brew day intuitive and enjoyable. The control panel is a scaled down version from our larger pro brewhouses. The entire brewhouse is built upon a network of sanitary welded and fully hard piped TC connections. The integral hard piping matched with a fully welded frame provides a fit and finish never before seen in a 1 bbl brewhouse.
You won’t find a punched false bottom on any of the professional brewhouses we design, and we felt there was no place for one on the nano brewhouse. The precision milled false bottom allows for a faster vorlauf, clearer run off, and mitigates the risk of a stuck sparge. The pro inspired grain-out door allows for quick and easy clean up. Tip and dump, or scooping grain from the top of a mash tun are a thing of the past.
