    Century Brewing System - opinions?

    Does anyone have experience or opinions on a Century Brewing system , I know they are out of business, but I've noticed there has been one for sale on classifieds for quite some time - just wondering the pros and cons- if any .
    Thanks

    I worked on a 30bbl Century brewhouse, 60bbl ferms and bbt. Very solid, high quality stuff. Some of the best build quality I have seen.

    I never heard why they went under, would be curious to know.

    I work on a 7 bbl. system, and have not had any problems with it. Very well constructed.

    We bought a previously-loved (i.e. second-hand) Century Brewery and we've found it excellent, even after a trip across the Atlantic to get to us.

    Can't think of an instance of it giving hassle, while lots of the equipment around it gave us loads.

    The manway gaskets are a beoch. Typically, they dont come with movable racking arms and all the manways have shadows. Other than that, pretty solid stuff.

    I can't speak to the racking arms of Century systems being movable or not as a rule. The system I worked on had rotating arms. The manway doors, shadows, etc. were typical of tanks built at that time period... JV and Mueller tanks I have worked on from that era were very similar in that regard.
