Making beer at home is fun but there are some types of equipment that you must own before getting into the business of making beer. One of those things is having an automatic filling machine. With an automatic bottle filling machine, you can achieve high efficiency on the whole production line of your beer without compromising its quality. Normally, when you make beer at home, the final stage is about packaging. For that, you need any sort of beverage filling machine that will fill the bottle of beer cans and a beer canning machine that will place the lids on it and seal it. Here are some of the characteristics of a bottling machine that you must own if you are making beer at home. Let’s have a look:
Types of beverage bottling equipment: Since drinking alcohol is a part of the culture in most of the countries, there is plenty of beverage bottling equipment in the market that you can find to use in your home brewery. Some are manual while some are automatic. There is a choice to make between expensive and cheap as well, so choose wisely according to budget and need. You don’t need a super complicated bottling machine but a simple, easily manageable bottling machine that can handle your homemade stash of beer.
Size of beverage filling machine: When you are shopping for a beverage filling machine, you must consider your brewery size. If you think you are going to make a lot of beer, then you must go for the big-sized beverage bottling equipment. But in case you have multiple people working in the brewery then it would be best that you buy 2 or 3 medium-sized beverage filling machines to manage with all the employees. The size goes from 500ML to 5000ML and filling head quantity can be from 6 to 14 heads depending on the size you choose for your home brewery.
Control: At home, there is not much equipment that you can handle because people don’t make beer every day, they do it occasionally unless they are starting it as a profession. For those who often make beer at parties or on thanksgiving dinners, they should go for something easily manageable and controlled bottling machine. You can either buy an automatic bottle filling machine or a manual bottle filling machine. The automatic one will have a control system that is like the microwave touch screen where you just have to put the digits and it will do the rest whereas the manual machines won’t have these options.
Most of them come in PVC and stainless-steel body so it is safe and durable while in use.
