“We make an unusual beer using unusual ingredients and BrauKon is the most flexible equipment manufacturer in terms of letting us use different ingredients and changing their equipment to match our process rather than us changing our process to match some idea of what a brew house should be.”

Allagash Brewing Company focuses on the production of Belgian style beers and uses various different malt grains. For their new malting system, it was essential to guarantee a strict separation of dark and lighter malt grains. An existing malt mill had to be integrated into the new system.
Our 80hl brew house includes a complex milling system with three different mills and countless custom parts to provide enough flexibility for both brew houses. The existing mill was integrated into the new system. BrauKon also provided a spice extraction system to optimize the use of oranges and coriander. A customized sugar dissolver to produce Belgian beers is also part of the system.
