Brewhouses are typically measured by the number of vessels. For example, a 2-vessel brewhouse may have a mash/lauter tun/hot liquor tank combination vessel paired with a Boil Kettle/Whirlpool combination vessel.
On the more advanced end of the spectrum, a 5-vessel brewhouse would have a designated mash mixer, Lauter Tun, holding kettle, Boil Kettle and a Whirlpool. Each of these designated vessels serves a particular purpose, allowing you to brew larger quantities of beer simultaneously.
Again, the setup you ultimately choose will depend on your brewing needs, the space you have to work with and your budget. Listed below are several different configurations of brewhouses based on the number of vessels:
Mash/Lauter Tun/Hot Liquor Tank Combination Vessel + Brew Kettle/Whirlpool
Mash/Lauter Tun + Brew Kettle/Whirlpool
Mash/Lauter Tun/Hot Liquor Tank Combination Vessel + Brew Kettle + Whirlpool
Mash/Lauter Tun + Brew Kettle + Whirlpool
Mash Mixer + Lauter Tun + Brew Kettle/Whirlpool
Mash Mixer + Lauter Tun + Brew Kettle + Whirlpool
Mash Mixer + Lauter Tun + Holding Kettle + Brew Kettle + Whirlpool
Two vessel brewhouse system
Two vessel configuration: mash/lauter tun+boiling/whirlpool
Fermentation/ Aging Vessels
Fermentation tanks, also referred to as fermenters , are aging vessels where yeast is pitched into the wort, effectively turning it into beer. The wort is pumped into this vessel through a heat exchanger and then added to the previously pitched yeast, where it can begin fermenting. Some breweries have designated aging vessels where the beer is transferred for the aging process.
The number of required fermentation tanks is based on your brewing production. In general, the more fermentation tanks available, the more beer that can be simultaneously brewed, fermented, and aged. Similar to other vessels, fermentation tanks are usually stainless steel and range in size from 50 gallons to 5000 gallons. Depending on your floor layout and production output, tanks may be open or closed, horizontal with manholes, or vertical with conical bottoms (as pictured below). Unitank fermenters may be used for both fermenting and lagering. Today, most craft breweries use cylindroconical fermentation tanks , which are engineered with a conical bottom and a cylindrical top.

Serving Vessel vs. bright tank
The beer is transferred to an aging vessel, where it is then carbonated and settles. From here, the brew may be kegged, bottled, refrigerated and served.
Usually, brewery equipment of this size is used in restaurants, pubs, and hotels, etc.
