Requests of the restaurant owners
For over two decades the company Joh. ALBRECHT has been one of the pioneers in developing custom-made breweries and has planned, constructed and successfully put in operation more than 75 copper and stainless steel brewhouses world-wide. Yet, after a while our customers called for something revolutionary new. Aim was to further increase the happening effects, to better introduce the subject of brewery and beer making and to offer new inspirations to the guests. The idea was born to develop a brewhouse made of glass.
Requests of the research breweries
Also the research laboratories wished to visually watch the brewing process additionally requesting a multi-functional brewhouse allowing the application of various boiling systems or lautering devices without the necessity for exchanging the entire brewhouse.
After 16 months of planning, the company JOH. ALBRECHT started the operation of the world-wide first and patented modular glass-brewhouse in November 2001 in the “Didaktische Lehr- und Versuchsbrauerei” in Kulmbach/ Germany. The glass-brewhouse combines the requests of both gastronomy and research by offering full transparency of all brewing processes through the glass cylinder and quick exchange of the single modules at any time due to flange connections allowing the application of different processing techniques.
Due to the modular construction it is possible to quickly replace one module by another. For example, in case the altered boiling activity during direct heating shall be compared to the performance during steam heating it is possible to quickly exchange only the bottom modules without great effort and retain all other components of the plant.
