    Nano for restaurant

    Totally understand. Don’t be afraid of success. If you outgrow the 1bbl it means you’re doing something right and will be better suited to purchase something bigger. We have a handful of people that bought a Nano over a year ago now, have very successful operations and they are still using the Nano!

    Nano for restaurant

    Congrats on the exiting venture. Have you reached out to our customer support team? We have a few other customers that have started concepts similar to yours (I can think of a crab shack and pizza place right off the bat). They will be a able to walk you through the entire process...

    Help me decide between Spike CF10 and SSBrewtech Unitank

    If there's any questions we can help with we'd be happy to assist! If you're specifically looking at the lid then I think ours wins hands down. Our lid comes off completely for easy cleaning. With the SS you would need to stick your arm into a small port to try to clean it when the time comes...

    Spike flex racking arm issue?

    There should definitely be an o-ring installed to secure the racking arm. You'll see an o-ring groove machined on the inside. The o-ring could have fallen out or slipped through QC without one. Either way shoot our customer support team a message and they will get you fixed up...

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    Pro Tip: Use a flash light or your phone up against the clear cap and you'll be able to see in pretty well even with condensation. It may be a problem with the older style Blichmann and SS kettles as we have purchased Blichmann and SS kettles to test the fit during development and they all fit...

    SsBrewtech 14gal Unitank Product Review ( and photos )

    Correct, all of our tanks are specially designed to accommodate both full and half batches. Everything from coil design, to port location to geometry enables this.

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    We have had this suggestion a couple times however this would significantly increase the price of the unit. Rest assured when the 4" cap is off the steam still goes up the pipe. A 'Pro Tip' is to leave the clamp off and just place the cap/gasket on the ferrule. It will still make a seal and will...

    Safely pressure fermenting with Spike Flex+

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Safely pressure fermenting with Spike Flex+

    Unfortunately we don't recommend that 'spunding valve'. The outlets are too small and could get clogged. If they get clogged very bad things can happen. A lot of people use a tee off the 1.5" TC on the lid. Are you apart of the Spike User Group o Facebook by chance? A lot of helpful people in...

    Safely pressure fermenting with Spike Flex+

    We recommend a purpose built spunding valve that utilizes a 1.5" TC connection. Anything smaller can get clogged. Always remember to never place a valve before your pressure release.

    Spike's upcoming eBIAB system

    Sorry about the confusion here. Unfortunately we don't sell competitors products with our equipment. The big advantage of the March pumps we sell with our systems is they come with sanitary TC connections.

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    When we approached the problem we looked at it two ways (like Bobby mentioned). Do we try to optimize the water usage down to the pint or make sure that absolutely no DMS will be present WITH a factor of saftey since users use products differently than the engineers that designed them ;) We...

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    Unfortunately since the BOM has 11 different components which comes out to 39,916,800 different combinations if my math is correct. I think our shipping department would quit if we opened up the kit for piecemealing like that.

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    We fully understand that HBT is full of DIY homebrewers. We designed a system that out of the box is 100% guaranteed to work correctly and have the testing to verify that. We tested lower flow nozzles and we were not getting the vacuum readings that we wanted and had steam escaping out from the...

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    The minimum pressure we recommend with our sprayer is 6psi. This produces enough misting liquid to have the system work properly. This is backed up by 3rd party lab testing for DMS. The nozzle size, flow rate, pump size, etc has all been designed to work with our system. All this is backed up...

    Spike - Steam Condenser Lid

    You can use your water source but the water usage will be much higher. Our pump is 6psi. Your supply will most likely be 40psi+.
