    I am trying to find out what the typical energy requirements for brewers are, for electrical needs and drying applications. Any rule of thumb?

    that is a very general question and i am not sure exactly what you are asking Do you need to know how much a brewery spends on energy per batch of beer, per month, per year. How big of a system are you asking about 10 bbl 15 bbl. How many bbl's of beer a year is the system you want to know about producing.

    I think if you provide more specific information you could get more responses

    Try the web site for Sound Brew systems - www.soundbrew.com. The have some basic technical information which may help. I expect if you trawl through the ohter suppliers websites, they may also have some info.

    Don't forget that overall energy requirements will also be affected by the climate and the degree of energy recovery and insulation used.


    Cheers

    I use about 200 kilowatts per I want to say full fermentor. Which can be one brew or 3 brews. By the end the the chiller and pumps have made the brewhouse a minor factor. I use about 30-40 kw for each brew session. Thats a small system. But it's not very effecient. I have electric heated water and kettle. If you want to save electric, get a steam fired kettle! That will be my next!

    Cristina,

    Try the following link:

    http://jvnw.com/brewing.html

    Scroll down the page, JVNW has a pretty good break-down of a BrewPub.

    Maybe these numbers will be what you're looking for
