Grundy 800L Brew Plant: Reluctant Sale
 
A vintage brew plant made from repurposed Grundy tanks beautifully wood clad.  Perfect for any brewpub, tap house, or as a show piece.    This lovely kit comprising of a Hot Liquor Tun (HLT), Mash Tun (MT), Wort Kettle (WK), Fermentation Vessel (FV), heat exchanger, chiller, and accessories.  It produces 4BBLs (or around 760 litres) of beer.
It is easy to use and a pleasure to brew on.  A most reluctant sale!
HISTORY: Originally made in Teddington, UK and pressure tested in 1976.  This equipment would almost certainly start life in the dairy industry before being converted for brewery use.  The equipment is fully functioning and has been used by at least two other microbreweries before I purchased it and made some minor improvements.  
DETAIL:
 
HLT 
 1000 litre capacity and takes about 24 hours to get up to temperature.  2KW element.  Insulated well and holds temperature well between brews.  Temperature probe on side of vessel.
 Abara pump, sat between RJT vales and an insulated pipe feeds hot water to the MT.
 Works perfectly and has a new thermostat to ensure that the element doesn’t over boil.
 1.07(W)x1.07(D)x1.81(H)
 MT
 Insulated wood cladding surrounds the vessel.  Lift lid, and filter base with a dead space of 14 litres.
 Recirculation pipe inlet, and outlet via RJT valve into underback.  Underback into Abara pump.  Pump has a selection of outlets, via a clear sight glass, either right through recirculation into the MT.  Left goes into WK.
 Works perfectly and easy to clean.
 1.10 (W)x1.10(D)x1.60(H)
 WK
 Insulated wood cladding surrounds the vessel.  Lid to ensure steam goes up chimney.  One easy to vent chimney attachment.  Manhole cover allows easy access to clean inside (yes I can fit through there).  12 KW element.  
 As no whirlpool uses whole flower hops.  Two filters are inside the kettle and work fine.
 Works perfectly and easy to clean.
 1.10(W)x1.10(D)x1.60(H)
                               
 
Heat Exchanger
 Works EXTREMELY efficiently even in summer using a combination of two RJT valves (one for the hot wort and one for the mains water).
 Hot wort goes via an easy to clean “hop” filter that protects the heat exchanger and works well.
 Cool wort goes via outlet that has a junction for a thermometer.  I have fixed and recalibrated this for accurate temperature measurement.
 Works perfectly and easy to clean.
 0.28(W)x0.79x(D)x1.00(H)
 FV
 Insulated wood cladding surrounds the vessel.  It has one connector to allow transfer in.  One viewing window, one sample tap, and two taps at the bottom.  One for clear beer and one for removing the yeast.
 Temperature control is via the chiller (to left of picture) that works well even in summer, and the cooling coil is on the outside surrounding the vessel (making for easy cleaning inside).
 Works perfectly and easy to clean.
 1.10(W)x1.10(D)x1.60(H)
 Switch Panel Provides a simple means of controlling the brew.  Switches for HLT (auto control), WK, and 2 pumps.
 In feed is via single phase electrics and will require a qualified electrician to install.  Output is via connectors on bottom of panel to individual devices.
 The HTL is controlled by the central controller that I have reprogrammed for easy use.
 I upgraded the HLT pump breaker (Pump 1) to the appropriate level.
 
There is slight rusting on the base of feet of vessels, and the odd surface mark from 40+ years of life.  Apart from that this equipment has always been brilliant, a pleasure to brew on, and delivered lovely beer.  
 
CAPACITY: 760 litres approx. 
FITTINGS: RJT
CIP: Spray ball to clean both WK and FV
