Boiling:When the wort level exceed the heat exchanger, start heating, open valve 3and valve4, keep it for 10mins, start pumping, keep it’s boiling for 6mins, and adding hops according to the ratio during this time.
Finish boiling. Finish boiling when the wort concentration meet the request (10BX), start pump, open valve3 and valve4, for 3-5mins, and stop pump for 30mins, open valve2 and discharge the precipitate,then close valves.
Cooling wort: Open valve3 and valve12, start pump. Clean the water left in the heat exchanger and connect the heat exchanger to the bottom valve for fermenters, and start cooling the wort. And open the city inlet and cold water inlet for heat exchanger during this time, also start oxygen valve.
