High Gravity Brewing Systems

High Gravity Brewing (HGB) Systems can boost a brewery’s capacity considerably, without having to invest in brewing house, tank or filter capacity. The idea here is to make and ferment worts with a high original wort content. A carbonating and mixing unit is then used to set the parameters desired, such as original wort, CO2 and alcohol content shortly before bottling. The brewing house also needs less water to make the wort, so less energy is needed for heating, boiling and cooling purposes.



  • All high gravity brewing process stages combined in one unit
  • Optimum process and product monitoring
  • Plug & play interface
  • Reduced costs while increasing productivity
  • Total one-stop concept
  • Integrated fully automatic formula management
  • Fully automatic CIP capable
