    kettle drilling resource

    Affordable electric controller

    Hi there! I am currently considering retiring my Klarstein Brauheld Pro and acquire one of these gorgeous kettles from The Malt Miller (I am in the UK). Problem: the electric controllers they sell are mad expensive... do you know any affordable alternative I could go for? Thanks!

    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...

    brown scratches on stainless

    I am using a BIABasket in my 304 SS brewing kettle and I realized that taking the basket in and out makes lot of scratches on the inner surfaces of the kettle.

    3 Vessel 16 Gallon Configuration

    So, I inherited, then modified this system. It came to me with three 16 gallon vessels, each with two ports near the bottom; the higher of the two for a physical analog thermometer and the lower for a ball valve. I added 240v 5500w ripple elements via 1-1/2" tri-clamp bulkheads, HERMS coils...

    How to Install A Ball Valve on Your Kettle

    You have weighed the options, done the math, and made the decision that it is cheaper to modify your own brew kettle than to buy one with the ball valve already installed.
