Fermenter Installation – March 19, 2014

Posted by at 11:03 pm | Category: Brewing Insights 0

If you were in our neighborhood on Potrero Hill in San Francisco Wednesday morning, you might have noticed some activity and lots of heavy equipment outside as two new fermenters were delivered for installation.

The fermenters were guided into place with the help of two industrial cranes.

With the new fermenters in place, our fermenting capacity will increase by approximately 50%.

Bob Brewer shared his thoughts on the new fermenters and how they will be used. “This type of fermenter is known as a ‘vertical fermenter.’ While these are the industry standard, they are a first for us and represent a major departure from our coolships.”

The new fermenters will be used for Anchor IPA and Anchor California Lager initially. Not to worry, open fermentation fans. Bob points out that, “Anchor Steam Beer will always be fermented in coolships.”
