    Floor material for under direct fire brewhouse?

    We have a relatively small (250L) brewhouse that is direct fire. Our kettles sit about 20" off the ground. We are in the process of renovating a new space for the brewpub. We have decided epoxy floors for the cold side but we are at a bit of a loss for the flooring underneath the brewhouse area, which I imagine will experience temperatures above the ~250F rating I've seen on urethane coated concrete spec sheets. We have ripped up tiles, cut drains and will pour our sloped floors in a couple weeks. Should we go back to tile?

    20inches is enough space. I always recommend putting a plate under the burner to deflect more heat. We would love to help out!

    Does your service area cover Costa Rica? ; )

    Great idea on the plate under the burner. But what material would you recommend for the brewhouse floor in that area? Epoxy? It's still bloody hot under there.

    Is the same coating material appropriate for walls?

    shoot me an email I’m sure we can help. I definitely recommend a urethane base. Make sure it’s prepped properly for maximum bondage

    We have done many walls in Breweries! I installed a urethane on my Brewery here in Oregon (Snow Peak Brewing Co) we also have done many Fiberglass walls for many other breweries.
