In a typical brewery set up, beer goes through the primary and secondary fermentation processes in separate tanks, and this process is regarded as ideal by the brewing industry. However, in some cases, there are space limitations that make the more traditional setup of separate tanks for each phase impractical, if not impossible.
Thankfully, when space is a factor, unitanks offer an effective solution. What are unitanks? They are professional grade brewery tanks that are used for both the primary and secondary fermentation.
Like all of our commercial brewery tanks, unitanks from Canadian Brewhouse Supplies are built to exacting standards with all of the features you would expect from a leading provider of brewery supplies, such as:
- Full jacket glycol cooling system
- Covers all accessible areas of the tank
- Food-grade (304) stainless steel
- 12 or 10 gauge with an 18 gauge jacket material
- 25% head space
- Fully adjustable legs
It is recommended that those employing a unitank system use glycol jacketed tanks to help guard against internal and ambient temperature changes.
