Many brewers are buying 1 bbl pilot systems right now. But not all pilot systems are created equal.
We packed our 1 bbl Pilot Pro with as many professional grade features as we could fit, and built the system with the same high standards for quality we use in all of our larger brewing systems. And we built it at the same price as many lesser systems.
What is The Pilot Pro?
A professional grade 1 bbl brewhouse. This system is an ideal pilot system for serious home brewers, nano breweries and/or existing breweries innovating new products or brewing smaller batches.
How much does it cost?
Actually... about the same as the others. While superior in quality and offering more advanced features, the Pilot Pro is priced very similar to other 1 bbl brewing systems on the market. Why settle for less?
How does the system compare to others?
We designed the 1 bbl Pilot Pro to perform like a full size professional brewhouse. We placed the elements in the brew kettle and hot liquor tank as low as possible, so you can start heating right away, with as little as 6 gallons in the HLT. These elements are widely spread to maximize surface area for rapid, even heating, reducing the risk of scorched wort. The elements are also protected with float switches, so you can’t possibly dry fire your kettles.
Our 1 bbl Pilot Pro also features:
Conical bottom brew kettle for better trub separation and fast cleanup
No unnecessary piping with a clean, elegant design
Hard piping allows easy CIP (clean-in-place)
Built-in wort chiller
