Beer equipment can be roughly divided into the entire process：
Grist Milling system, Brewhouse system, fermentation system, cooling system, CIP system, control system, etc.
For a small brewer bar or small workshop, the crushing system mainly refers to the crusher. The crusher is divided into a grinding disc, a counter roller, a three-roller, and a four-roller. The roller-type roller is more convenient to use and has a better crushing effect than the grinding disc. Usually a small craft bar or workshop will use a pair of roll grinders.(Requires a relatively high equipment crushing system also includes automatic weighing, automatic humidification, dust, etc.)
Brewhouse system Tanks – Mash Tanks – Lauter Tanks – Boil kettle – Whirlpool Tanks (Some large-scale beer brewing equipments have temporary storage tanks)
As a result of a variety of uses of a pot, so there are many names of saccharification systems such as :Two Vessels Brewhouse, Three Vessels Brewhouse, Four Vessels Brewhouse
Two Vessels Brewhouse
The following general explanation of what is called two tanks of two vessels, two tanks of three vessels (these two configurations are often used in craft bars and small workshops)
Two tanks and two vessels: From the outside the saccharification system has two tanks with two containers inside. One of the containers is used as a mash tank, a kettle, a whirlpool tank (this tank has only one container, and this container has multiple functions); another container is only used as a lauter tank.
Three Vessels Brewhouse
Two tanks of three vessels: From the outside, there are two tanks with three containers inside. One of the interiors is a container that separates up and down, as if the two containers are stacked together and the stainless steel wraps around the tank that looks to be a single unit. A common two-pot tripler is a container that acts as a mash and kettle; one container acts as a lauter tank only; the other container plays the role of a whirlpool tank.
Four Vessels Brewhouse
Based on the understanding of the above two names, mash tank, lauter tank, kettle and whirlpool tank should be understandable.
If only from the use of effects, I think the best thing is to have only one function per container. Because in different processes, the configuration of some containers will behave differently. For example, in the two-tank device, the saccharification needs the mixer to work, but when the container is performing the spin-precipitation process, stirring the blade will have an adverse effect on the precipitation effect.
In general, I suggest that if you are a craft bar or a small workshop, then two-pot three is a better choice. If it is a large winery, it is recommended to configure the quaternization device or five devices because of the high quality of the wine and the need for relatively stable quality. This configuration can produce water, and it is best to use a configuration with a high degree of automation and a relatively high heat recovery rate.
