Electric Brewing Equipment

Electric Brewing Equipment

There are different ways to boil your wort (which is the first step when making beer), some home brewers 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 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 concerned about the temperature of your wort.

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 electical brewing parts and equipment are approved for use in Canada? Yes, there are some homebrew suppliers that sell non-certified electrical components for brewing beer, we are not one of them. You can be assured that all of the electric brewing equipment you see on Canuck Homebrew Supply has been approved for sale in Canada.
