One BIAC. Endless possibilities.
The BIAC brewing system can be easily scaled up simply by adding additional 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 fermenters. The Mash Colander, Pump Assembly, and Power Box can be used with multiple fermenters to significantly increase total brewing output.
For example, one could own a nano-brewhouse producing 156BBL/4914gal./18564L/39170 pints annually for about $25,000 of equipment—one Large (1.5BBL) BIAC and 3 additional 4-in-1s on a two week ferment cycle requiring one brew day/week or 26 brew days/year.)
Or, one could own a micro-brewhouse producing 520BBL/16380gal./61880L/130567 pints annually for about $50,000 of equipment—one 5BBL BIAC and 3 additional 4-in-1s on a two week ferment cycle requiring two brewdays/week or 52 brew days/year.
It depends on scale but a rough estimate for cost of goods is about $1/pint (ingredients, electricity and labor) and with other overhead at $1/pint and a sale price of $5-6/pint, one can achieve a 100% return on investment in just a few months.
Installing an I-beam over the BREWHA fermenters and attaching the overhead hoist to a trolley (like is shown at this link) allows the Mash Colander to be easily moved over to where the grain can be dumped out. Quick, and easy. (We can source everything for you, or point you in the right direction.)
