Being able to store larger amounts of raw materials allows you to get better value through bulk shipments. And using a spent grain silo after brewing or distilling can also help make things easier for you and your employees to manage waste.
Malt Storage and Spent Grain Storage are often afterthoughts when planning a new brewery or brewery expansion, and are sometimes overlooked altogether. While buying your malt in bulk quantities can save you a pile of money vs. buying it in 55lb sacks, the logistical problem of where to store it all can become a nightmare in the often-cramped confines of a brewery. Incorporating a Malt Silo or Spent Grain Silo into your brewery can help reduce two of the major demands on space in any brewing operation.
A well built Malt Silo is the main line of defense between your malt and the elements, and should be viewed as an asset that will protect you and save you money over time. With a minimal footprint, silos make efficient use of valuable property by reducing the square footage required for malt storage. Add a decal with your brewery logo, and it turns your silo into a billboard that stands out above almost everything else around it. Who doesn't love free advertising?
We offer a range of silo products which will meet the needs of any configuration and climate. Choose from Welded and Epoxy-Coated Steel, Stainless Steel, Fiberglass, or Corrugated Steel bins. Available in just about any size you can think of, and designed to stand up to the rigors of a lifetime in the elements, all the while protecting your investment inside.

Loading bulk bag stands.
Bulk bag stands are a great option for a mid-sized brewing or distilling operation, or for specialty recipe ingredients that wouldn't require the volume of storage in a silo.
We provide customized unloading stations for bulk bags up to 2500 lbs. Available in epoxy coated carbon or stainless steel. Options such as agitation, hoists, and an array of discharge transitions allow these units to fit into nearly any situation. Please contact us for more info.

An Elevated Spent Grain Silo with a drive-thru support structure will simplify the disposal of your brewery spent grain, making it easy to offload into whatever type of trailer will be used to haul it away. A Spent Grain Bin can also help delay the mold & bacterial growth often associated with spent grain storage, reducing foul odors that can upset the neighbors. Your Spent Grain Silo can be equipped with optional spray ball, robust knife gate & discharge auger to help keep it clean and facilitate off-loading.
