Cold Liquor Tanks: Why are they used?
Cold liquor tanks are used for the brewing process and are also called buffer tanks. Buffer tanks contain cold water used for the purpose of cooling the bitter wort temperature down to the fermentable level range after boiling. This process is done by wort cooler. These cold water tanks need to be sized properly to sufficiently support a brewing system with water at the quantity required. Typical tank sizes are 2-2.5 times the brewhouse size depending on brewhouse needs.
