5.4. How it works

3 last updated: 8 months ago

Caution! Hot! Brewie's surface can get extremely hot during the brewing cycle. Handle Brewie, hoses, and components with care.

Caution! Hot liquid! Risk of equipment damage! Do not remove water hoses while Brewie is in operation.

MASHING
During the mashing phase, first, water is heated. When it reaches the required temperature, it's poured on the malt.


SPARGING (optional)
Sparging is only allowed if automatic water addition has been chosen and the hoses are connected. Do not disturb Brewie while water is being cycled in or out of the machine. Disturbances can cause the weight sensor to report false data.

HOPPING
Do not put hops anywhere but into a hop cage. Do not put hop cages anywhere but into the hop tanks.
The Brewie will get hot during the process. Do not lean on the machine, and open the lids of the hop cages carefully. Do not open the lids unnecessarily. Hop cages could rise as a result of that.


COOLING (optional)
Depending on water temperature and water pressure, cooling is usually between 10-20 minutes. Expect a large amount of water, up to 150 liters (40 US gallons) depending on brewing parameters.
The maximum cooling temperature is the temperature of the cold water supply + 5 °C (9 °F).
Additional water’s temperature might change during brewing, causing the wort’s temperature to change from brew to brew.

Caution!Cooling is only possible when your Brewie is connected to your household water system and make sure the tap is open!


Finish Brewing
Confirm that the brewing is finished and only start draining then.
