The high productivity of a brewery
is significantly influenced by fermentation
and it is based on efficient
yeast management. Since the
numerous individual steps of the
brewing process are closely and
mutually connected with yeast
management, utmost care is absolutely
necessary, because only with
biologically faultless basic conditions
for the yeast you will ensure
continuously high beer quality.
The Krones yeast management is
an easy and coherent concept and
covers all steps from the laboratory
to the yeast propagation as well as
from the yeast storage to the yeast
disposal. For yeast propagation, we
recommend the well-proven concept
of the one-tank process which
guarantees a continuously high
vitality of your yeast.
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.
All advantages at a glance
Yeast management in an easy and reliable process
The Krones yeast management is practical: The yeast propagation can be designed for batch operation or for a continuous process. This way it can be adjusted to the individual operating conditions. The yeast storage integrated into the concept and the yeast disposal will make your daily brewing routine even more efficient.
Continuously high yeast quality
The external aeration system in the area of the propagation and storage render a safe and continuous yeast vitalisation.
High-performance beer production
The coherently designed yeast management enables efficient fermentation. This results in optimum productivity and perfect beer quality.
Safe and hygienic production conditions
Fully-automatic cleaning and sterilisation processes in the propagation and storage tanks ensure high yeast culture safety.
