At GEA we understand state-of-the-art wort boiling as an interrelated package comprised of the heating-up process, the actual wort boiling and the wort treatment during cast-out. Only the holistic approach achieves best values in terms of beer quality and in energy efficiency.
HOPSTAR™ Iso Hop Technology
GEA has developed an innovative method for the efficient use of hop extract. For an industrial application of this method they also integrated a homogenizer.
Wort Boiling with JETSTAR™
The JETSTAR™ provides a completely innovative process in atmospheric kettles: two-phase boiling. This method, with two separate steps, gently and efficiently boils the wort using an internal boiler in natural circulation. JETSTAR™ can be supplied as part of a new installation or easily retrofitted to existing plants.
With wort cooling we change over from the hot to the cold phase of beer production. After separation of hot trub the wort temperature is lowered to the required pitching temperature. From the physical point of view, cooling is an easy process. In practice, however, breweries can choose different methods of heat transfer.
