A brite tank is a vessel used to mature, clarify and carbonate beer. It gets its name after the clear, bright beer stored and processed in it. Most breweries use brite tanks as serving vessels, too.
While it would take around two weeks for beer to clarify and carbonate in a conical fermenter, a bright beer tank needs less than two days. Typical breweries have one brite tank for every four to five conicals.
A special dished bottom collects the leftover yeast, letting you draw clear beer down to the very last drop. Unlike conical fermenters and other vessels, bright beer tanks yield close to 100% of the volume, letting you easily perform packaging calculations.
A large, dimpled jacket on the coat makes sure the temperature inside the brite tank is always optimal. Thanks to the vertical construction of the cooling jacket, the stored liquids will be efficiently chilled even if the tank is not full to the brim.
Durable, high-quality materials enable the bright beer tank to stay in pristine condition, even after years of professional usage.
The bright beer tank is made out of AISI 304 quality stainless steel. An upgrade to AISI 316L stainless steel is available for high-corrosion environments.
A high-polish, mirrored finish is applied to the outside of the brite tank. Marbled, Matte and Scotch Brite finishes are also available upon request. The inside is BA (IIId) Mirror polished.
