From ABER Instruments' range of yeast pitching equipment, the COMPACT PERFECTPITCH is a portable skid that incorporates a COMPACT ADAPT yeast monitor, a flow meter, pipework and mini-PLC.  So if the brewer needs a self-contained module or the flexibility to connect the yeast monitor to various yeast storage vessles and fermenters, the COMPACT PERFECTPITCH provides the ideal solution at an affordable price.

Our recent case study highlights the benefits that the Meantime Brewery in London experienced during their trial of the COMPACT PERFECTPITCH.
