    For Sale Electric Brewery Starter System $1000

    I built this system about 5 years ago with the intention of eventually building out to a full 3 vessel HERMS setup. I never quite got around to doing all of that, but I’ve used the system (Panel/Boil Kettle/Mash Tun) to brew about 10 batches and all works as expected. There’s some scratches and...

    1800 W Electric Kettle (used once)

    Hi folks! I'm selling my Klarstein Mundschenk brewing kettle for $250 (negotiable). It works well, but this 1800 W beast is too powerful for the 15 A breakers in our new place. Used literally once to brew a white IPA, so it works and is basically new :) Should work well on a 20 A breaker...

    Electric Brewing Simplified

    Unless you were fortunate enough to have an experienced brewer bring you into the world of home brewing, odds are your first batch was on a very basic setup. For me it was a partial extract batch brewed in a borrowed stockpot, on the gas stove-top of my old college house. A simple yet effective...

    My Electric Brewery Build

    The idea to upgrade to an all-electric brewery started 2 years ago after seeing some similar systems on several forums, including Homebrew Talk. I’ve been brewing for close to 10 years now, starting as most did: with extract in a single pot on a propane burner. When I moved to CT, brewing became...

The EBC-SV is the heart of the eBIAB system it runs the Chugger pump and regulates the output of the heating...
