The Hidden Costs of Chinese Brewing Equipment
We understand that opening a brewery can be a costly and complicated endeavor. While breweries and distilleries are the passion of their owners and brewers, it is still a business. Most breweries require outside financing to get funded. Often times, looking for a deal on brewing equipment can be a tempting way to save costs. You always have to remember, that you get what you pay for. Buying Chinese brewing equipment may sound like a good idea, because the costs are lower. However, what is the hidden costs of buying cheap equipment? Tanks are just tanks, right?
American Made Stainless Steel Brewing Tanks Won't Rust
We've talked to several clients who made the decision to save on costs with cheap tanks and have rusted tanks before they've even brewed their first batch. The difference in quality between American stainless steel and cheaper grade steel from overseas is a chasm. Foreign steel is more susceptible to the oxidation process, which means the likely hood of rusting is far greater. If you wouldn't drink beer made with rusty tanks, why would you want your customers to?
Leaky Tanks, Leaking Profits
All of our fabricators are certified with years in their field. They take great pride in their work, and the quality of their welds will always beat a rush job. If you're tanks are leaking, you're losing productivity. Putting your money towards American equipment can help to ensure that you're not losing time trying to fix problems, or paying us to fix them for you.
