We welcome your inquiry and will gladly supply information packages, quotes and any other assistance necessary for helping you in the planning of your project.
Chris Little ‘the engineering brains behind it all’ 
Chris is the project manager and guru of all things beer and equipment relating to it. He started his beer laden path by working for Mac’s brewery, then using this knowledge Chris started his own business providing complete craft beer solutions by designing, fabricating, installing and commissioning complete craft solutions throughout Australasia. Successive brew systems designed, fabricated, installed and commissioned include: New Zealand Hops/Plant and Food Research 50 L hop trial plant, Emersons Lauter Tun, Golden Bear Brewery, Murrays Craft 25 HL system, Cheeky Monkey brew system, Governor Brewery and Matso’s Brewery. Chris lives and breathes engineering. Throughout the years he has been involved with many projects around Australasia that have had many different requirements and challenges. These ranged from providing a completely enclosed yeast management system, designing and building a water column for quality precision gas pressure control, to helping design a complete automation program for a 25 HL brewery from scratch. Chris’s experience in the craft beer industry, from designing a completely automated Lauter tun from mash in to grain discharge, to designing, fabricating and commissioning an automated 25 HL cat-walk brew system for 4 million litres of beer in Australia, has made him a walking encyclopedia of all things beer. Chris has much knowledge of codes and regulations of everything to do with brewery equipment. Chris had many contacts that have made him invaluable for the craft beer industry in Australasia, which include NZ Hops, Golden Bear brewery partner, stainless steel specialist, steam and refrigeration specialists, and many owners of a CLE Brew System whose knowledge Chris can draw upon to help with brewery solutions.
