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 while others choose to use electric brewing equipment.

Adding electric brewing equipment means you will have to modify your kettle in order to add a heating element (however some kettles do come with a heating element hole already pre-drilled). You will need mechanical and electrical skills* if you plan on customizing your brew kettle.

The benefit 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 that 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 really concerned about the temperature of your wort.

The use of an eletric brew belt is recommended for those that are fermenting ales and want to keep their plastic carboys or buckets at a temperature between 23-27 degrees celsius.

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