In this article a new lauter tun design is presented with which the
outlet area can be increased to 2.5 m2 per run-off pipe. The run-off
pipes are no longer distributed uniformly across the bottom of the
lauter tun but are integrated into the bottom directly above a single
lauter ring. This design results in less effort and lower costs for the
lauter tun production and significantly reduces the water volume and
cleaning chemicals required. Furthermore, the required performance and
wort qualities are achieved safely, which was statistically validated by
the results of a scientific work.
