What makes MARKS EnergyCraft different from other 5bbl brewing systems on the market today?
  • Exclusive MARKS’ Energy Management Control Center (EMC2) assures the most energy-efficient use of heating and cooling during the brewing and cellaring processes
  • Fully integrated brewhouse and cellar controls
  • Highly efficient, fully integrated stack condenser
  • Energy-saving dual-stage heat exchanger integrated into the brewing process
  • Unique compact “uni-body” design to provide the most brewing capacity in the smallest footprint

75% estimated annual savings through reduced electricity usage for cooling during the brewing and cellaring process.

51% estimated annual savings through reduced electricity usage for heating during the brewing process.

Major savings on installation costs compared to other 5bbl brewhouses.

EnergyCraft proprietary design with its fully monitored energy technology that manages all the electrical energy used in the heating and cooling processes during brewing. The energy management is powered by MARKS proprietary Smart Energy Controls technology that constantly balances the need for heat and cold during brewing. It is so efficient that there is generally no need for an outside cold liquor tank! So efficient that the integrated stack condenser eliminates the need for a vent in the roof for steam to escape! So efficient that you can reduce the size of the chiller! As an electric system, no need for a boiler!

You can focus on making great beer while the EnergyCraft system takes care of finding the most energy efficient way to do that brewing.

MARKS EnergyCraft two vessel brewhouse consists of two dedicated brewing vessels, a Mash/Lauter and Boil Kettle/Whirlpool.

The two vessel brewhouse is built on an elevated brewing skid with integrated hot liquor and cold glycol/water storage tanks.

Brewhouse includes all needed pumps, piping, instrumentation, heat exchanger, heaters, and controls.
