Cold Brew Avenue
Stainless Steel Cold Brew Coffee System

for Large Batch and Commercial Use

We have designed our large batch cold brew system specifically for coffee shops, restaurants and bars looking for a cleaner, easier and better way to brew large batches of cold brew coffee.  Our system features a stainless steel veseel, and a custom fit stainless steel cold brew coffee filter plate for brewing anywhere from 15–50 gallons* of ready to drink, or cold brew coffee concentrate! 

This 5.5 Gallon Cold Brew Coffee System is the smallest coffee maker that we offer.  It is ideal for home use, as well as commercial use in small volumes.  This small system is also great for pilot batches to test new beans and ratios before brewing a larger batch!

This cold brew coffee system was designed with you in mind.  No more messy, hard to clean cheap nylon bags for filtering your coffee grounds.  No more cheap plastic buckets and components.  Our heavy duty filter plate design allows you to clean out old coffee grounds with ease! The vessel, filter basket, ball valve and hose barb are all made completely of 304 Brewer's Grade Stainless Steel, which means it's more sanitary than plastic and made to last!

Our new filter design makes the system more versatile and brings some of its existing features back to the forefront. The new filter makes cleaning the system much easier and more importantly, we have significantly reduced the volume that sits outside of the filter (i.e. not with your coffee grounds) - up to a 66% improvement.

As we brewed more and more with our basket designed system, we realized that we had 30-40% of the total volume of the cold brew system was outside of the basket. Our goal when we designed the cold brew systems was ease of use, efficiency and the ability to add-on/upgrade components.

With our new design, we've been able to decrease the volume outside the filter by over 60%.

After your coffee has brewed for the desired amount of time, simply connect the 3' of 1/2" I.D. Silicone Hose that comes with your Large Batch Cold Brew Coffee System, and open the ball valve.  Your cold brew coffee will flow from the kettle, filtered and ready to drink!  This system makes it extremely easy to filter directly from your Cold Brew Coffee System into kegs, that you can then hook up to serve nitro coffee on draft!

Optional Thermometer and Bulkhead Fitting Sold Seperatly


When doing large batches or heavy concentrates, your flow can significantly reduce as your coffee filters out of the cold brew system. If the flow has slowed or stopped from too many grounds, use a long plastic spoon to reach down to the bottom of the grounds and shift around gently to help the coffee to begin flowing again. 

Flow and drainage can also be improved by:  

  • Making a lighter concentrate (make ready to drink coffee instead of concentrates)
  • Using a very coarse grind
  • Making sure that the cold brew system is thoroughly cleaned between uses. Be sure to remove all coffee residues from previous batches by thoroughly cleaning the filter with a combination of hot water and soap, or any other cleaning agent that is friendly to stainless steel.
  • Boiling your filter in water occasionally will help to remove any oily buildup that may occur from the coffee.

Great piece of equipment - already saving time! September 10, 2015

I got a demo unit from Keg Outlet a couple weeks ago now and have run a 3 batches of cold brew through it now. After having cold brewed coffee through other methods for a long time, I must say that this system is an amazing upgrade from any previous system that I've used. Plus, I'm able to make 3 times as much coffee in a single batch! (It could be 6 times as much, but I went conservative with my purchase).

Pros of the Ss Cold Brew System:
- Large batches
- Quick filtration
- No mess / easy to clean
- Stainless steel - looks great in my shop
- Heavy duty kettle can be used for other things as well

Cons of the Ss Cold Brew System
- Price is a little high, but my system has already paid for itself
- Handle on the filter could be better - thin wire, hard to lift

All in all, I'd highly recommend this system to any coffee shop owner who currently does cold brew. The pros of the system far outweigh the cons and they guys at Keg Outlet have been great to work with.

Works Beautifully! January 6, 2016

We have recently amped up our cold brew production and this has made it so easy! Once we figured out the ratio we liked from coffee to water for brewing, it has been smooth sailing- this system has cut our cold brew prep time in half. Highly recommended!

Easiest Cold Brewer Ever April 30, 2018

I've been brewing cold brew coffee for 10 years professionally and have used many different products to do so. The Cold Brew Ave brewer has been by far the easiest to use, clean and tweak. A coffee nerds dream. Also unlike many of the more common plastic commercial brewers the stainless steel improves flavor noticeably.

I highly recommend!

These things are amazing! May 25, 2016

I ordered 2 of these for my shop a few weeks ago and could not be happier with them! They have revolutionized our cold brewing process and have saved us SO MUCH time in the process. No more dealing with paper filters and mesh bags which translates to less waste. And while I'm talking about less waste, we also have a local farmer who is picking up our used coffee grounds and uses them for planting/gardening soil additives. Talk about a win-win! These cold brew systems aren't just great for coffee shops, they're also great for the environment.

Cheers Keg Outlet!

Best Cold Brew System!!! March 14, 2019

I've worked with pretty much every commercial sized cold brew maker there is and the Cold Brew Ave line is by far the best! The filter on the Cold Brew Ave system is way easier to use and more efficient than Toddy's pro line. They're built to last, no degradation of the finish and everything feels solid after a year of heavy use. Top it off with some of the best customer service in the industry and you can't go wrong.
