Description
 
This electric HLT is the same configuration we include in our 3-vessel HERMS system builds but some customers ask for each vessel individually.

We start with the higher end Brew Built kettle, which already comes from the manufacturer with a welded drain and upper accessory port. We add the following in house:

TIG welded 1.5" TC ferrule down low for our TC-Integrated, 5500 Watt ULWD Ripple Heating Element.
Custom whirlpool return fitting to fill the upper accessory port
TIG welded custom compression bulkheads and 42 foot HERMS coil.
Custom whirlpool return fitting installed in the upper accessory port.
A 2pc ball valve is included on the drain port, whirlpool return port and the lower HERMS port. You may upgrade all of these to 3pc ball valves by adding quantity 3 of the 2to3upgrade accessory to the cart.

Options:
Select which size kettle you'd like. Brewbuilt kettles are available in 10, 15, 22, 31 and 50 gallon sizes. For this kettle configuration, 10, 15, 22 and 31 are applicable and there is approximately a $50 difference between sizes. Contact us if you want a quote on larger sizes. We can go all the way up 50 gallon but it will require dual elements and a 50 amp circuit to keep heat times reasonable.

NOT INCLUDED:
  • hose barbs or male quick disconnects for ports. If you plan to use Camlocks you will need (2) camF. If you prefer the BLQD style quick disconnect, it's 2 BLQD-F.
  • Temperature controller. You'll need a controller capable of 5500 watts, which is 24amps/240v minimum. We highly recommend the Blichmann Brew Commander. If you purchase this kettle along with a controller from us, we will drill and kettle and install the temperature probe for free.
  • Recirculation pump. In order to make use of the whirlpool port, you'll need a pump. Any of the pumps we sell will do the job on the 10 and 15 gallon size but the Blichmann Riptide is recommended for the 22 and 31 gallon sizes. In a HERMS system, a pump is required to keep the water in the HLT moving constantly for good heat exchange. A second pump is used to put the wort from the MLT through the HERMS coil.

Our apologies, configured kettles are not included in our free shipping offer as the package size and weight incurs and significant shipping cost.
