Frequently Asked Questions
What is the minimum size of a ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA brewhouse?
The first question is how much beer per year you want to brew. Then you consider how many days a year you want to produce. If you can then estimate how many brews per day you can produce, this results in the approximate brewhouse size. The smallest ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA brewhouses usually start at about 50bbl (~60hl). Since these are only approximate values, please get in touch with our experts for advice.
If you need a smaller brewhouse, our sister company DME from Canada has suitable solutions for you.
What brewers need to know about the quality characteristics of cylindro-conical tanks (CCT) and what they should consider when planning their tank cellar
The most important advantage of a cylindro-conical tank (CCT) as compared to the traditional combination of open tun and horizontal storage tank is the closed fermentation system. It reduces the risk of microbiological contamination to almost zero. Further important advantages for brewers are:
- Ideal tank for CO2 recovery, which makes the brewery independent of other CO2 sources
- Yeast can be selectively harvested, which reduces the risk of autolysis
- Highly efficient automatic CIP cleaning
- Reduced cooling energy consumption due to direct tank cooling
- Higher fermentation and storage volume per operating area
However, a tank must meet high quality requirements in order to benefit from all these advantages. It must be tailored to the specific needs of the brewery regarding size, equipment and installation. Our whitepaper contains the essential principles for this task and clues based on many years of experience in tank construction. Please download our whitepaper here.
