How to buy beer brewing equipment in China?
Now many foreign customers are planning to buy Chinese brewing equipment because of the price. In comparison, the price difference between Chinese brewing equipment and equipment produced in the United States or Europe is 40% to 60%. Therefore, I am worried about whether the low price is caused by the quality of the equipment. DEGONG Equipment is a professional beer brewing equipment manufacturer in China, here are the instructions for you to buy Chinese brewing equipment.
1. Research and consult Chinese manufacturers
If you want to buy Chinese brewing equipment, you can get a shortlist of manufacturers who you think have strong technology and reliable technology through online search and query, then contact the above manufacturers and ask them to provide recommendations of breweries that have purchased or are using their equipment letter. Manufacturers in China are also happy to let you connect with purchasing customers and evaluate their equipment. During this period, ask them for some equipment videos, pictures and customer cases through conversations, and further communicate with the technical engineers. As more and more breweries start purchasing Chinese-made beer equipment, you may have the opportunity to visit a brewery near you that has beer equipment from your favorite manufacturer. This also helps to further narrow the selection of beer equipment manufacturers.
2. Discuss your project plan
Next, you need to discuss your brewing project with your favorite equipment manufacturer. A good beer equipment manufacturer will provide related questions such as:
How much beer do you plan to brew each month or year?
What is your overall budget for the project?
How big is your brewery space?
What brewing process are you going to use?
What are your goals for the next 3-5 years?
These questions are posed for new brewery installations and brewery upgrades.
3. Brewery equipment list and layout
When you agree on a solution from a beer equipment manufacturer, they will provide you with a complete list of equipment. You'll then work with the manufacturer so that both parties can agree on a list. Such as the volume and number of fermenters, and the need for a yeast rim.
You need to put together a checklist and understand the layout of the building and determine basic equipment placement to ensure good workflow and reduce brewery operating costs.

4. Determine the delivery time
Once an order is placed, it usually takes 2 to 4 months for the equipment to be completed and shipped to the site. During this period, Chinese equipment manufacturers will start manufacturing equipment according to the agreed specifications and will keep you informed of the progress of the project. During this time, you will secure your building and prepare it for installation. This requires working with the manufacturer so they are as prepared as possible before installation. This will include the following items:
Utility Access Point (for water and electricity)
Water tank floor plan and location
Ceiling height (affects equipment manufacturer's design)
Where is the building (residential or industrial?)
5. Brewery equipment shipment and commissioning
Before the brewery equipment is shipped, the buyer may want to check the condition of the equipment. This is to ensure that the equipment produced by the manufacturer is of good quality and to check whether the content of the equipment is in accordance with the agreement. The next step is to transport the brewery to the designated installation site. Equipment may take 6-8 weeks to arrive on site. During this period, the building configuration needs to be completed to facilitate the installation of the equipment.
6. Installation of beer equipment
Installation of equipment can take up to 2 weeks if there is good communication between buyer and seller during the manufacturing phase. After passing through the complex equipment installation, it is necessary to move on to the next stage: commissioning. Normally, first-time brewery equipment needs to be cleaned, acid brewed and tank passivated before any beer is made.
After the installation is completed and everyone is satisfied with the installation, the manufacturer will assist the customer to develop a new system together. Under normal circumstances, the manufacturer will go through at least 2 brews with you to understand the workflow and brewing process, and will answer any specific questions you may have. Here, you'll learn about the flow of equipment and how to use them effectively so you can brew great beer in your new system.
7. After-sales service
After-sales service is one of the important components to consider when choosing a beer equipment manufacturer. When your equipment encounters problems in subsequent production, you can still contact the equipment manufacturer to help you solve any problems and questions about the equipment and ensure that you can use it normally.
