How Adnams is brewing sustainability (UK)

“The resource-efficient mindset extends to water as well, with Adnams using around three litres of water per litre of product, compared to an industry average of four or five. “We reuse some of our cooling water, which takes on heat and is then used as hot liquor water”, says Orchard. “We’ve got a hood on our kettle, which captures all the steam. A lot of breweries will just vent the steam from their boil into the atmosphere. We capture it and pass it back through heat exchange to heat the next brew. So we get 90 per cent of the heat requirements for the brew from the previous one.” Systems like this have enabled Adnams to reduce its annual gas use by 25 per cent.”
