Superior Controls (3 options to choose from)

Engineered controls deliver consistent brewing temperatures and higher quality brews.  The controls can run up to 22,000 watts, making double batching possible.  The electric elements adjust anywhere from 0 to 100%, giving you complete control of the brewing process.  The heat is spread out to avoid scorching the tri-clamp elements, which can be easily removed for cleaning.  All of our controls protect elements from burnout by automatically cutting power when the liquid level drops too low.

Choose from Advanced or Pro Basic Control Options

  • 12-inch Touch Screen with Advanced Controls includes a touch screen interface that allows you to operate the elements and pumps with the touch of a finger, utilize an ultrasonic optional flow meter to deliver a precise amount of hot liquor to the HLT, save recipe parameters, automatically start and stop the hot liquor tank at set times, track mash temperatures, and even provide remote control via your smartphone, tablet or computer.  The advanced controls also provide the ability to start the HLT before you brew.  Walk in to hot water in the HLT.
  • 7-inch Touch Screen with Advanced Controls (same features as outlined above)
  • Basic Controls provide the same quality of temperature control and element heat control with fewer bells and whistles at a lower price point.  You will brew quality beer with this simple-to-use panel. 

Safety First

Like all of our brewing equipment, this 1 bbl electric pilot brewing system is designed to protect the brewer’s safety.  Our GFCI are the safest in the industry, and will break at around 5 mA within 1/40th of a second.  Don’t take chances with safety.  The GFCI protection is separate for each element to avoid a complete system shutdown in the event of a detected fault. 

Sanitary Fittings

This system provides welded tri clamp connections for easy cleaning and quick connections.  Wort piping includes sanitary butterfly and diaphragm valves which do not require disassembly for cleaning.  Spend less time cleaning, and more time brewing.
