Since its installation, the Rinnai tankless water heater has consistently produced the hot water Abide needs for its mash and sparging processes, and the founders say the unit helps them save roughly 2 hours each brew day. According to owner Evan Scanlan, “The Rinnai enables us to continue to brew hundreds of gallons of beer, several times a week without fail. The heater is surely put to the test day after day and has never missed a beat.”
Evan believes Abide saved somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000 by using a Rinnai unit instead of purchasing a hot liquor tank. Furthermore, the brewery achieves additional savings because the reduced time to boil translates to less natural gas consumed by the burners. The time, energy and financial savings that resulted from the Rinnai installation have left no question in the team’s mind that they made the right decision.
“We highly recommend any brewery to install a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater in their production facility,” said Evan. “Big or small, Rinnai has products to fit your needs.”
