What is a Brite or Bright Beer Tank used for?
A bright or brite beer tank has a specific function in the brewing process. Its purpose is to be a storage tank where beer is kept for testing and analysis. When the brew in a bright / brite tank is deemed acceptable and fits the recipe description, the beer is packaged into units before consumption.
It might seem like the ideal job to test the flavor, aroma, and taste of the beer stored in brite tanks, but it is a serious profession. The taste of the beer must be exceptional and the body and color of the beer must be analytically sound. When the beer inside a brite tank is designated acceptable and released for packaging, the brewery team in charge of the bottling or keg line is able to package the beer from the brite tank.
