BREWPIPE: Continuous Fermentation of Beer


Beer production is a commercially important, large-scale process, but there are very few continuous plants, as, although many designs of continuous fermentor have been tried, none have been particularly successful (for a variety of reasons). We have basic proof-of-concept that an oscillatory flow reactor can be used to produce beer of acceptable quality. This project will entail exploring the parameter space of the process, to understand which are the key parameters, to optimise the process, and, ultimately to make this a viable commercial technology. A subsidiary aim of the project is to begin to investigate intensification of the brewing process as a whole.
