FactoryTalk® Brew™: Advanced Brewery Control

FactoryTalk Brew

FactoryTalk Brew is Rockwell Automation's new brewing software developed by McRae for advanced brewery control. This software, created from McRae's extensive experience in the brewing industry, provides a modern control system for medium to larger brewers. FT-Brew controls all aspects of brewing, from grains-handling to brite beer and provides improved sequence control, consistent quality and reduced waste. FT-Brew can find those opportunities to shorten your brew centres. More brews per day can save labour and help find additional capacity. Additional capacity helps to avoid costly and disruptive capital expansion or replacement and allow repatriation of third party brewing.

Built with the intent of putting the brewer in control, FT-Brew's software interfaces were designed to allow brewers to easily perform the tasks that put them in the driver's seat.
