A very important step in the brewing process is cooling the wort. The hot wort is cooled down to the set temperature using a plate heat exchanger. Thereby the multiplication of biocompatible microorganisms is prevented.
The plate heat exchangers consist of a plurality of thin metal plates arranged in parallel, which are passed alternately by wort and cooling water.
The hot wort is cooled down using cold water (or ice water); the cooling water thereby heats up to a temperature which can be regulated via the amount of the water flow.
