Imported Mash Filtering Machines
iHIS picture roughly represents one ot the many important departments
in the new Brew-House at the Jacob Ruppert Brewery. The four ma?
chines in front are mash filters, the first of their k.nd ever built in any brew?
ery in the United States. The machines were made in Germany, at Frankfort-^
main, and are the largest ever installed in this or any other country, having a ca?
pacity of filtering over 600 barrels an hour, or 1,800,000 barrels a year. After the
wort has been filtered by these machines it goes on to the large copper brewing
kettles on the floor below, where it Is boiled. Then it flows through the most up
to-date cooling apparatus in this country into glass lined steel tanks, where It
becomes aged and clarified before bottling.
