  • Outdoor Fermenter Installation-Pictures Wanted

    I’m getting scrutiny from our city environmental health inspector regarding two 7BBL conical fermenters that I have installed outside of our brewery. The tanks are insulated, jacketed and connected to our glycol system.

    His issue is that they are not covered or enclosed.

    I have written a lengthy letter explaining our tank cleaning/sanitation process, transfer process and the inherent food safety qualities of beer. Emphasis is on the fact that wort/beer is temperature controlled and isn’t exposed to the atmosphere or oxygen once it goes into a sanitized tank.

    I’m hoping to show pictures of outdoor tanks that exist in other breweries that are similarly installed-with no overhead covering or enclosure other than a security fence. I think this could be anonymous, but names and at least the state where the brewery is located would be helpful.

    Post or PM me a picture or other information if you can.
