The Krones procedure

At the Krones one-tank process, the yeast is provided in a propagator with divided cooling zones. This way, a defined temperature management can be realised for different fill levels. For discontinuous operation of the brewhouse, a steriliser will supplement the line concept for buffering the wort supply. Heating surfaces or an external heat exchanger for retaining the heat can be employed here.
