Pilot Brewing Equipment

YoLong’s Pilot brewing equipment works the same as our large-scale beer equipment, except the pilot brewing equipment only produces a small amount of standard craft beer.

The system allows brewers to conduct small-scale beer try-outs for new beer recipe innovations and test-runs for a larger scale operation.

The reason why pilot brewing is so popular is because if you want to have your own craft brewery or see how well a new beer recipe sells, having a trial-run with pilot brewing equipment is a valid and practical method to see your way forward.

A Pilot Brewing System allows you to change up the productivity of your brewery without interfering with the primary brewery’s objective. As a secondary brewery system, a pilot brewery produces a small beer batch to supplement your flagship brew.

You never know, your pilot brewed beer might even grow to rival the popularity of the flagship beer! That’s the flexibility a pilot brewing system offers the brewer: the chance for new beer recipe experimentation, special or celebration release beers; all without getting in the way of main beer production.


4/5 Vessel Pilot Equipment

If you own and run a large capacity brewery, buying a 4- or 5-vessel pilot brewing setup that can be used the same way as large brewing equipment is the best choice. This means that the dimensions and methodology will be easier to increase at will. Test reports from pilot brewing equipment can be used directly in large brewing systems.
