Zane C. Barnes. Paper presented at the MBAA 11th Anniversary Convention, Minneapolis, Minnesota, September, 1998.

Abstract
Globalization of brands and concentration of brewing sites requires fewer breweries to produce an ever increasing diversity of beers as well as high volumes. This paper describes how a UK brewery recently upgraded its twin stream rapid batch brewhouse built by Balfour over 25 years ago. Renovation of the 8.5m diameter lauter tuns, conversion to external wort boilers, and automated batch process control have ensured high wort quality, consistent 2.4 hour cycle time (10 brews/day/stream), >98.5% extract recovery to fernenting vessel and reduced operating costs, with over 20 different wort types.
Keywords: wort boiling, thermosyphonic wort boiler, lauter tun
