The brewhouse at Throwback Brewery is a 3-barrel (93 gallons), 3-vessel, direct fired system, and is affectionately referred to as our franken-brewery.
It’s our franken-brewery because it’s built from 3 different used sanitary stainless steel tanks that had never seen the inside of a brewery before. It may not be the prettiest thing to everyone, but it’s near and dear to my heart, and I’m super excited to have built it!
The tanks resided in MA and PA before they made their way into my life. They then spent a few weeks in Maine to be retrofit with the proper ports, doors and insulation to convert them from basic single-walled tanks to a Mash/Lauter Tun, a Hot Liquor Tank, and a combo Kettle/Whirlpool. Here are some pics of the tanks when we finally moved them into our brewery space.
