My project consist in the creation of a microbrewery in Montreal (Canada). We have to evaluate the feasibility of this beer production project but we do not have any relevant data on the internet. That’s why I write you in this forum to benefit from your expertise in brewing.
Production to be achieved: 500 liters for each brewing.
The range of beers produced would consist of six beers:
• A blonde (33 and 70 cl)
• Amber (33 and 70 cl)
• A brunette (33 and 70 cl)
This project is part of a masters course at an engineering school in Montreal (CANADA). Please send your answers on this email (my preference) or directly on the forum: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please answer all questions with accuracy and do not hesitate to ask me questions if you need more details.
My questions are as follows:
1- Given that the production will be 500 liters per brewing how much time do you estimate a production brewing (in days)?
2- What is the initial investment required for the equipment of that brewing process?
3- What is the required area for the equipment of that brewing process?
4- What is the initial investment required for malting process equipment (1 malting tank and 1 drying equipment)?
