Bought this in Sept. 2014. Has worked well for me (6-10 batches/year), and still works fine. Have changed to a different electric set up. Originally paid $1100, will let go for $400. Here's the description from the original invoice.

240VAC Brew Boss Controllers and Systems
Controller Type: 120VAC Pump Output Plug &
240VAC Brew-Boss Heater Plug
Brew Kettle Size: 15 Gallon
Heater Assembly: 5500 Watt

Note: I'm keeping the basket, so buyer will have to replace that ($86 at https://bayouclassicstore.com/Baskets/B160.html)

Note: You'll need a pump, as I'm keeping mine, which didn't come with the kit anyway. I've had it for some years.

All manuals for set up and operation on are online: https://www.brew-boss.com/category-s/140.htm -- Darin has been absolutely fantastic about answering questions over the years.

Includes my old Android (from about 2013, not pictured), if you want it. Still works; I pretty much dedicated it to Brew Boss. So not sure how many newer programs work on it. But Brew Boss does, as does Firefox, etc.

Will ship: e.g. 2 day priority mail from my home town (Wheaton IL) to Denver would be about $51. Just to get a ball park Everything weighs about 25lbs, and the box would be 19x16x16 (approx!).



Steal of a deal. I've got the brew boss version 3. If I didn't. I'd buy this for the controller only.
No doubt. I want it, but just bought a spike kettle and piecing together a system
To be honest, I went back to my 3 vessel fly sparge system instead of using the brew boss equipment. I incorporated my own heating element, and use the controller though. I really like the automated via tablet interface, and it works well with my Ss Brewtech system.

Someone looking to convert from propane to electric, this is a great buy.
