Precise yeast dosing for optimal brewing
The COMPACT PerfectPitch is a reliable and efficient yeast pitching control module designed to achieve precise control of yeast pitching, resulting in consistent and shorter fermentation times. At its core, the Compact PerfectPitch features the acclaimed Compact Adapt Yeast Monitor, ensuring accurate real-time measurement of live yeast cell concentration. Combined with a flow meter and mini-PLC, it guarantees the exact amount of live yeast is dosed into each fermenter.
Brewers can achieve better consistency in their products by consistently hitting the correct target pitching rate and reducing process variability, leading to more efficient use of vessel time. The COMPACT PerfectPitch delivers notable results such as energy, cost, and efficiency savings.
With the COMPACT PerfectPitch, brewers can safeguard their brews from potential off-flavors and hung fermentations, achieving a new level of consistency and beer quality. Brewers can effortlessly wheel the skid to the desired location within the brewery, connecting it to various yeast storage vessels and fermenters with flexible hoses. Its user-friendly design allows for seamless integration into existing setups.
Ideal for expanding micro-breweries and craft brewers, the COMPACT PerfectPitch addresses the yeast management challenges faced when using multiple vessels and different yeast strains. It offers the convenience of connecting to various yeast storage vessels and fermenters, making it the only yeast measurement instrument needed in the brewery.
