Brewing/Distilling Control System

Yokogawa’s Brewing/Distilling Control System stemmed from our partnership with two startup microbreweries and their need for a system that reduced the hands-on monitoring and perfectly controlled all temperature and timing requirements.

Our custom solutions incorporate a process automation controller with a digital graphic display operator interface, allowing the Brew Master to monitor and alter temperatures and timing cycles as the brewing recipe requires. A data acquisition system can also be included to provide historical feedback for each brew to ensure the repeatability and quality of each recipe.

Our systems can be designed to accommodate all processes startup to established, providing the precise control needed to help grow your business and create a consistent and reliable brewing process.
