Brewing operations often have the choice between building their own facility from scratch and contracting their brewing operations to an established facility. This Book recommends a design for a craft brewery producing varieties of beer with a 100,000 barrel/year total production capacity.
The recommended design minimizes the use of external utilities by maximizing the heat integration of process streams. I performed a rigorous economic analysis to determine the profitability of the process design. The startup and operations costs for building an independent facility following this design are calculated and from this a reasonable rate for contract brewing setup.
