The Spinbot 5000, an innovation in the vortex-treatment system was invented in 2013 by Jay Lesher. Known as "Jay the Welder," he was named one of the 26 top innovators in the brewery industry in All About Beer.
A Master Welder since 1985, Lesher has a stellar reputation and is a respected leader in the craft beer industry, known for brewing, building, repairing, designing, and inventing since 1995. Currently working at Cigar City Brewing Company, many of Jay’s inventions are used on a daily basis. He also invited several brewery owners and engineers to look and see the Spinbot 5000 as it was in use, infusing wood spirals to an IPA. All were in agreement that they were witnessing the future of Infusion Technology for the Craft Brewing Industry. Jay the Welder says that the secret is in the DOUBLE VORTEX INFUSION which gives the most efficient contact time to the ingredients.
