Stainless Steel Brewing Kettle Tanks
Stainless Steel Kettle Tanks Perfect for Boiling the ‘wort’ in the Brewing Process
Stainless Steel Kettle Tanks with the power needed to get the job done
Once the mash tun has done its’ job, the ‘wort’ that has been produced must be boiled, and for that job we produce a kettle Tanks – sometimes also known as a Copper. Unlike a HLT which can be allowed heat water quite slowly and so need little power, a kettle Tank needs to get to a boil as quickly as possible. Therefore it is always advisable to add as much power as possible to the kettle Tank. The best way to apply this power is via 3 phase electricity. The problem is that some premises do not have access to 3 phase power, so a consultation with a local electrician is always a good idea.

Flexible Power Options
A kettle needs to get to a boil as quickly as possible. Therefore it is always advisable to add as much power as possible to the kettle. The best way to apply this power is via 3 phase electricity. The problem is that some premises do not have access to 3 phase power, so a consultation with a local electrician is always a good idea. For some of the smaller kettles that we produce, several 240v elements can be used, but again you are likely to be limited as to how many kilowatts of power you can use in your kettle by the wiring in your premises.
We add 50mm of insulation to the sides and the base of our kettles in order to retain as much of the energy that you apply to it, and help to reach a boil as quickly as possible also saving you money by reducing the amount of energy that you need to put into it to bring it to the boil.
2 Stage Filtration
As standard, our kettles all have a hop filter added to the bottom. This filter is designed to stop the larger fragments of hop flowers from blocking the outlet pipe, but it will allow the smaller particles to pass through, where they should be easily contained with the addition of a hop back. This two stage filtration minimises the danger of your hops from blocking the kettle, and with a hop back employed will allow for ‘late hopping’ of beers to give additional flavour.
Thermally Efficient Steam Removal
The lid has a 5” hose tail added which will allow for connection to an exhaust for removal of the steam that is created during the boiling period. Helping further insulate the Stainless steel Kettle preventing further heat loss through ineffectively venting the steam.
- Stainless steel construction. Food safe, easy to clean, long lasting
- 50mm of insulation on sides and bottom minimises heat losses through the kettle walls and ensures as much energy as possible is going into the beer
- Stainless hop filter is fitted below the elements to allow for the capture of the larger of hop fragments. We don’t attempt to retain all hop particles as we find that that can lead to blockages on the filter screen. instead the filter will allow the smaller particles of hop and dust to pass through the outlet pipe, where we would advise the addition of a ‘hopback’ to prevent blocking of the heat exchanger. A hop back will of course also aid in the late hopping of beers
- Our lids are fitted with a 5″ hose tail to allow for connection to a flue liner which will exhaust the steam from the boil
