Brasina is a software that automates the brewery process. It is specifically tailored to the needs of small to mid sized craft-beer breweries. While it guarantees stable output through automation, it still provides a lot of flexibility.
Unlike most other brewery controller software, Brasina is not based on a PLC controller. Instead, it uses a more open and flexible, ARM based, embedded platform. Such a platform makes designing a product like Brasina possible.
The basic idea which provides all the flexibility is based around recipes and workflows which can be freely programmed by the user. The amount of recipes and workflows is unlimited.
Recipes contain everything required for the brewery process, such as rest settings, hop dosages, cook time, etc. The distinct feature of Brasina however is the ability to freely define workflows. These workflows can control all valves and motors in any sequence. When workflows are combined with recipes, the result is a procedure that can be tailored to each individual recipe. With most products, this process procedure is fixed, or maybe configurable with some fixed set of parameters. In the case of Brasina however, workflows guarantee a maximum of flexibility, and let the brewer experiment with recipes and different procedures. Such workflows are not only useful for the main procedure, but can also be used for cleaning or rinsing procedure.
Brasina supports running multiple recipes in parallel, if this is supported by the physical setup of the brewery. This means the output can be much higher than with a serial operation. As such, it is feasible to complete many brews in one day.
Besides the brewing process, the software allows attaching up to 16 ferment tanks and an additional hot water tank. Temperatures of these tanks are automatically measured and controlled.
Even though it is possible to automate the complete brewing process, the Brasina software allows to manually interact with the machine by allowing to oversteer all motors and valves at any time. This makes this controller software particularly useful for craft-beer brewers who want both, an automatic and reproducible brewing process, and at the same time the ability to manually interact with the machine for experimentation.
The software is controlled by an intuitive and modern touch screen. The complete software is implemented in-house by bitmatch GmbH. This gives us maximal control over the features and future direction of the product.
