You want to brew small batches the easy way? 

This can be the answer: BT140+ (BT180)




The BT140+ is an electrically driven low-cost brewhouse that is made out of stainless steel. It has butterfly valves with clamp connectors. It is equipped with a stirrer (220 V, 50 Hz/60 Hz) and a steam condenser that simply needs a thin water hose to work. Just install your electrical plugs on the electrical cables and start brewing. The BT140+ has wheels with stoppers and can easily be moved into a corner of a room after brewing.

The BT140+ is the successor of the BT140. The only difference to the BT140 is the height of the lower vessel. The height of the lower vessel (boiler/whirlpool) was increased by 15 cm. This means over 42 liter extra volume compared to the BT140. The total volume of the lower vessel is now over 207 liter. This means you can still brew 140 liter - but you can also brew up to 180 liter or even more. When you want to push the system to its limit a more powerful heater in the lower vessel is recommended (see slide 97 "Spare parts" in BT140-Hints).

This way up to 400 liter can be achieved on a brew day with a double batch.

Diameter = 67 cm 

Inner diameter of the vessels = 59.5 cm

Height = approx. 165 cm  

Total height with the stirrer = 188 cm  

Total volume of the upper vessel = 165 liter 

Total volume of the upper vessel = 207 liter  

Weight of one vessel = approx. 60 kg.

BT140-shipping-box: Length x Width x Height = 1.45 m x 0.8 m x 1.05 m


The only things that have to be bought seperately  by the brewer are a little pump and a plate heat exchanger.



Upper vessel:


Functions: Mashing/Lautering

Heating: Electrical heater with a power of 5 kW (Europe: 400 V, USA: 220 V)

Top:  Lid with stirrer

Inlets: Sparging water

Outlets: Drainage, side outlet

Features: Slit filter for lautering, thermometer

Lower vessel:

Functions: Heating up the sparging water and the wort during lautering/Whirlpool/Cooking

Heating: Electrical heater with a power of 5 kW (Europe: 400 V, USA: 220 V)

Inlets: Lautering/Whirlpool, CIP "Spray ball" for cleaning, hop port

Outlets: Clear wort out, drainage, steam out

Features: Thermometer, liquid level hose, steam condenser

Cooking in the lower vessel: A steam condenser is used to cook the wort in the lower vessel. Quick double batches are possible since the second batch can already be mashed in the upper vessel while the first batch is cooked in the lower vessel.  


Brewing one batch per day can comfortably be done by heating one vessel at the time. If enough power is available both vessels can be heated at the same time. This offers then the possibility of even quicker double-batch-brew-days. In Europe a 16 Ampere fuse can deliver up to 10 kW power. This means with a standard 16 Ampere fuse both vessel can be heated at the same time. The BT140+ can be equipped with more poerwful low cost 2" tri clamp heaters. Suitable 10 kW heaters (400 V, 16 A) can be bought for ca. 50 USD (see slide 97 "Spare parts" in BT140-Hints).


BT140+: 4'250 USD
