USED 5BBL Hoff-Stevens & Lee Brewing System ( $4,200 )Hot
A standing 7ft – 200 gallon 3/4 jacketed kettle from Lee Metal Products is the heart of this system. Complimented by 55 Hoff-Stevens 1/2 BBL Kegs, this is a “bootstrapping” dream come true. The kettle can boil enough to fill 10 kegs (155 gallons i.e. 5BBL) and because they are Hoff-Stevens kegs, you can use them as primary fermenters! And, since the out valve stands about 4ft off the ground, you can fill the kegs straight through a chiller (not included) without the use of a pump! Transfer and carbonate into the other 45 for service and its is game on!
For producing wort you can either go straight for extract just to start selling beer ASAP or if you want to go all grain add a food grade plastic tote or a used dairy tank with a slashed copper manifold and you are in business!
The kettle is designed to be powered by a low pressure steam boiler, but it can easily be converted to a direct fire using a “Midco Economite EC200” or equivalent.
So just to be clear the base equipment is all stainless steel – 1 x 200 gallon 3/4 jacketed kettle and 55 x 1/2 BBL (15.5 ga) Sanke Tap Hoff-Stevens kegs. Enough to start a 5 Barrel extract brewery or with one more piece of equipment, go all grain!
