Making beer is achieved in a few processes i.e.: The mashing, wort boiling, cooling and fermentation.
Wort is cooled as quickly as possible, to go to the fermentation. Brew a top-fermented beer and the wort should be cooled down to about 20 degrees, which is the temperature ale yeast works best in. If it is a lager brewed, wort should be cooled down to about 10 degrees.
The cooling must be done as quickly as possible so that the wort is not attacked by wild yeast.
In the picture the buffer tank for cooling is shown. This specific buffer tank is from one of the new micro-breweries which popping up all the time.
Many of these micro-breweries only supply in the local area. For environmental care they often use heat transfer fluids with low carbon footprint such as ECO MPG from Temper Technology. Find Local Distributor
