    Slight bend on lip of Spike CF15 lid?

    Hi Spike users, I recently purchased two CF15s and came across an odd find on the lids. There appears to be a deliberate “fold” or “bend” in the lip of the lid. I thought it may have been damaged in shipping but afterI opened the second box and found the same thing I thought that it was too...

    CF15 5 gallon batches

    Creating this thread to record using the cf15 for 5ish gallon batches. Today I brewed a 6 gallon Rauchbier in my CF15 and it is working just fine so far. I moved the sample valve to a not so great position. I can't take any samples this way. I think for this to work better, I would recommend...

    Spike Solo Brewery Build

    After taking a year off from brewing I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! Coming from using gas in my garage I moved into a house that has an awesome indoor shop in the basement. Obviously I just had to take the leap into going electric. Finally ran the 240v and getting excited...

    Building a 2V Electric System- Opinions on Boil Kettle Port Location

    I'm putting together a 2-Vessel electric system. I've used a number of different all-in-one electric systems, and I've decided 2 vessels is the way to go for me. The hanging/draining bag or malt tube just gets in the way of checking my pre-boil volume and pre-boil gravity. I don't do...

    Hi folks. I was hoping this would be an easy installation but apparently not from my electrician. I have no clue about anything electrical. That’s why I purchased a complete system with prebuilt box from @SpikeBrewing (really ebrewsupply). This control box ...
