Feel the cold-brew buzz.
Cold brew is changing the coffee world. Third wave and second wave producers both are brewing, bottling and kegging as much cold brew as they can because of its low-acid and complex flavor profiles. Roasters are becoming brewers and baristas are becoming bottlers.
Whether you are a coffee roaster who needs to add brewing equipment to your roastery or a craft brewer who wants to adapt your equipment to handle coffee, we can help. We offer a complete range of equipment from 1 barrel systems all the way up to 10 barrel systems that can brew over 300 gallons in a batch.

How we got into the cold brew business:
Mashing in at 5:30 am, coffee is a necessity. Spending all morning next to a boiling brew kettle, and cold brew coffee is more than a luxury. And we are from Portland, Oregon, home to artisan coffee and craft brewing alike. We’ve been drinking cold brew on tap before it was cool. As the cold brew industry has grown, from the straight-up still versions all the way to flavor infused “nitros”, we’ve seen the need for the same quality of equipment in the coffee industry as in the craft beer industry. With our experience and obsessive engineering, cold brew coffee fits perfectly with our company’s skill set.
Stout Tanks and Kettles’ cold brew coffee equipment is designed to make your business more efficient. With built-in stainless steel fine-mesh filters, a variety of batch sizes, optional glycol jackets, thermowells, tangential side ports for gentle circulation, optional pressure capability, and commercial clean-in-place (CIP) systems, your Stout Tanks and Kettles cold brew equipment is easy to operate and maintain. Our triple-layer filtration systems remove particulates down to 1 micron, and make filtering easy and precise.
How cold brew coffee and craft beer go together
Cold brew is where the craft beer and coffee worlds converge. The craft brewery and cold brew coffee consumer are often the same person. They value craft, flavor, and skilled local production. Craft brew consumers frequently value a high-quality coffee in the morning. Cold brew consumers often enjoy a flavorful craft beer in the evening. Our brewery customers often add artisan coffee to their taprooms to drive traffic early in their day. Coffee shops are adding kegerators for cold brew coffee and taps for craft beer to give their customers more options late in the afternoon. At Stout Tanks and Kettles, we provide all of the equipment and expertise to make your cold brew expansion successful.
Lagers and ales ferment at precise temperatures, and hops are added to beer at the right moment to preserve the fresh aroma. We understand how to brew your coffee at the right temperature and time to make the best cold brew possible. Whether it is barley grains or coffee grounds, you will be able to engineer your best brew yet.
Commercial cold brew coffee production
Coffee has over a thousand separate chemical compounds that can affect flavor. Each reacts differently at different temperatures. The art of roasting lies in the Maillard reaction, which converts starches and simple sugars into complex compounds, each with distinct aromas. The origin of the bean, the temperature and time of the roast, the size of the grind, and nature and temperature of the water can all influence the flavor profiles of cold brew. Our large batch cold brew coffee brewing systems are commercial grade and can help you take your cold brew business to the next level. We support large scale roasters as well as independent roasters through the entire brewing process. Our commitment to quality means our equipment warranties, team expertise and support are paramount.
The systems are designed with coffee shops, roasters, restaurants, craft breweries, brew pubs, and tap rooms in mind. This clean, easy way of brewing with stainless steel tanks and kettles will make you gladly forget the messy plastic buckets and cheap filters. Instead, our professional grade equipment will accommodate your brewing needs and keep your product sanitary without the mess.
Your initial investment will have you brewing more than you thought you could, with ease. Instead of dealing with the hassle every day of managing clunky, difficult systems, our 100+ gallon systems can get you started on still and nitro cold brew options.
