Brewing Operations at Barnhouse Brewery

We have over 20 years of brewing experience and we have tried many configurations for our brewing system over the years (RIMS, HERMS, and direct fire).  We eventually settled on direct fire and using separate mash and lauter tuns.


Direct fire has proven to be a great way to get consistent mash temperatures with no fear of burning wort (as is possible in a RIMS system...we know from personal experience) and easily supports our step mashing programs.  Our four vessel system (HLT, Mash Tun, Lauter Tun, and Kettle) also allows us to do decoction mashing or two separate mashes at the same time. 

We started on a small 20 gallon system and it served us well, but we eventually moved to a 2 barrel (BBL) system.  It still uses the same 4 vessel configuration and affords us the opportunity to grow and produce more beer so that we can have plenty to serve here!


As part of our expansion, we are close  to having our 7 BBL, steam fired system (with a jacketed mash tun to allow us to perform the step mash programs that make our beers great!) operational.  We will also leverage the 55 Gallon mash tuns from our 2 BBL system in conjunction with the 7 BBL system to act as decoction vessels to produce our traditional German hefeweizen (as well as using as a CIP system).


All our beers are expertly designed and hand crafted for your enjoyment.
