Breweries and beyond. Where we work and how we can help.

K-Malt continues the work we’ve always done: designing customized raw material handling systems and process/utility piping solutions for breweries and distilleries. And we’ve expanded, applying our expertise to new arenas.

Where we work

  • Breweries: Raw material handling, spent grain handling, and process/utility piping solutions. From individual pieces of equipment (such as silos or mills) to complete turnkey solutions.
  • Distilleries: Raw material handling, spent grain handling, and process/utility piping solutions. Grain-on or grain-off distilling; hammer milling, roller milling, and adjunct milling.
  • Malteries: Conveyance, cleaning, storage, milling, and aspiration. Flexible, integrated solutions for storing, cleaning or milling raw barley, wheat, and corn.
  • Coffee Roasteries: Coffee bean conveyance, storage, and milling. We specialize in gentle conveyance and proper milling specifications as well as supersack storage and unloading solutions. 
  • Golf Courses: Silos for sand storage. Bulk storage can reduce your raw material costs and maintenance labor.


K-malt can provide the mechanical installation of all the equipment we offer.

Spare Parts

Our Colorado shop maintains an inventory of critical spare parts for all the equipment we supply.

Mill service

Eliminate whole grains in your grist for lower malt costs & better brew-house efficiency. (Sorry, cows).

Grist composition

The importance of a good grist composition cannot be understated. Historically, brewers have always understood that to be able to produce a “clear” wort, the filtration, or these days the functioning of the lauter tun, had to meet certain criteria. One of the biggest factors next to a properly sized lauter tun, for both throughput and wort quality, is the grist distribution of the malted barley. The mill has to produce the right distribution (of particles sizes) of the milled malted barley or any other grain used in brewing. This distribution is a function of both malt quality (properly malted grains) as well as the milling of the malted brewing grains. Milling of malted barley is much more the than just the crushing of grains. The use of sieves to properly distribute the grains as well as the use of multiple set of hardened rollers has a big influence on the proper grist distribution. Additionally, brewers can leave a lot of extract behind if they don’t properly mill their grain. This knowledge is present in the design of all Künzel mills with their proven.
