    I have a Bavarian unitank that seems to be well-made, but I can't vouch for any other tanks or systems.

    The Brewery Planner is on the Brewers Assoc website, www.beertwon.org.

    I worked for about four years in a brewery with a 10 bbl. Bavarian system. We never had any problems with it at all. We brewed three times a day, five days a week and once on Saturday - one brewer got the wort into the kettle, the next brewer mashed out and started the next brew right behind him. The system worked like that for several years. Only when the owner could afford it and the market demanded it did they finally upgrade to a 30 bbl system (this was after I left). Now, that doesn't necessarily mean the owner didn't do some custom modifications - I have no idea - but that old work-horse never once shit the bed. As for energy efficiency and so on, I never paid any attention to that, so I'll leave it up to someone else to comment about it.

    Bavarian made some custom serving tanks for us (45 psi) short and with all fittings. They met the tight specification I gave them, delivered on-time and at the quoted cost with excellent customer service. I was impressed and would use them again.
