Description
 
Brewers that use immersion chillers and also own a pump should know that recirculating the wort back into the kettle to whirlpool the wort makes for much faster cooling and will also make a concentrated pile of trub and hop particles in the center of the kettle bottom.

Introducing the BrewHardware exclusive and purpose-built unit called the SpinCycle Submerge. We started with our industry leading "True Bulkhead" weldless bulkhead design with captured O-ring and extended male threads. The result is THE most compact and visually stunning way to whirlpool. It includes the base unit with a 90 degree bored opening on the interior of the pot, the captured high temp silicone oring, a thin SS washer and a 1/2" NPS locknut to hold it all together. Best of all, look at that price! You couldn't get a professional welder to tack weld two pieces of scrap together for this much.

Unlike the original SpinCycle whirlpool setup which installs above the liquid level, this fitting is meant to install approximately 2" below your typical finished batch size (or the smallest batch size you are to perform in the kettle). Since it is installed under the liquid level, it WILL require a valve on the exterior of the pot.

Most Frequently Asked Question? Should you use the original SpinCycle or the SCSubmerge? Yes. Seriously they both get the job done. The SCSubmerge adds more bulk to the exterior of the pot since it has the valve requirement but it puts less hardware inside the kettle that would otherwise need to be cleaned. The SCSubmerge can also be rotated to spin the whirlpool in either direction unlike the original design that is fixed clockwise (unless you ordered it differently).

Second Most Frequently Asked Question? If they are both comparable, why offer two versions? The SCSubmerge is actually the solution for people that may already have a relatively low hole drilled for a dial thermometer but want to swap the thermometer for a whirlpool. A great example of this is those who converted over to Brew In A Bag brewing where a thermometer probe would snag and rip the bag.

ACCESSORIES:


These can be added to the cart in the Since the exterior of the pot will have 1/2" Male NPT threads sticking out, you'll have to decide how you want to attach your hose returning from the pump. As mentioned, you'll need either a 2 piece or 3 piece full flow ball valve directly on the outside of this unit. It is not included, see the accessories.

Install Notes:
Drill a clean 13/16" diameter hole in the sidewall of the pot, below the minimum liquid level line you plan to use. It is also important to remove any sharp edges or "burrs" from the inside edge of the hole, otherwise the oring can get torn. Pro Tip: If you are using a step bit to make this hole, drill most of the steps from the outside of the pot all the way up to the 3/4" size. Then drill to 13/16 from the inside of the pot to remove the sharp burr. If you have a sharp edge on the outside of the pot, it will NOT affect the interior oring seal at all. It will get covered with the SS washer anyway.

If you already have a hole in your pot that is 7/8" or slightly larger, you should select the 7/8" hole size in the drop down menu.

Insert the threaded portion of the unit through the hole from the inside of your pot or keg with only the oring in place. On the outside, install the metal washer and locknut and snug everything up with a wrench. You can insert a stubby screw driver into the interior hole to keep it from spinning while tightening the exterior locknut.

Outta the way July 16, 2019
Reviewer: Roger Jackman from Harrisonburg, VA United States  
This whirlpool port gets a super tight whirlpool going with little effort and doesn't interfere with anything inside the pot. BrewHardware calls this out, but please note that there will be another valve sticking out of the side of your pot. If you have limited space around your pot, you might want to go with one of the high port units.

Winner April 27, 2019
Reviewer: Casey Faulkner from Bellevue, WA United States  
Best option for weldless recirculation. Beats tangential arms for whirlpool speed and longevity. Clean welds, easy to install and adjust. Just perfect.

What a nice piece. Hugs the side of the kettle so as not to interfere with my IM chiller.

Better than expected January 18, 2019
Reviewer: Lucas Gray from Ames, IA United States  
Installed on a bottom drain keggle expecting to get a mediocre whirlpool with my Chugger pump, I was happily surprised when this performed better than the tangential inlet I had on my old kettle.
