Electric Brewing Equipment

Electric Brewing Equipment

There are different ways to boil your wort (which is the first step when making beer). Some homebrewers opt for propane burners or the kitchen stove, while others choose to use electric brewing equipment. Adding electric brewing equipment means you will have to modify your kettle to add a heating element (however, some kettles do come with a pre-drilled heating element hole). You will need mechanical and electrical skills* if you plan on customizing your brew kettle.

One of the benefits of using electric brewing equipment is that you can save a lot of money in the long run compared to using propane. It is also easy and safe to use and is perfect for a small home brewing setup. You also have better control of the heat you apply to your wort, and you will not scorch the bottom of your brew pot. While some heating elements do not come with temperature monitoring, you can always install one, especially if you are concerned about your wort's temperature.

An electric brew belt is used by many homebrewers when fermenting ales to keep their plastic carboys or buckets at a temperature between 23-27 degrees Celsius.

Were you aware that not all electrical brewing parts and equipment are approved for sale and use in Canada? Some homebrew suppliers sell non-certified electrical components for brewing beer; we are not one of them. Canuck Homebrew Supply only sells Canadian-approved electric brewing.

*Warning: Electric brewing equipment can result in serious injury or death if not installed and used correctly.
