Hands on Review: Ss Brewtech InfuSsion Mash Tun!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Ssbrewtech InfuSsion Mash Tun

At first glance, you might think the Brewtech InfuSsion mash tun was only created to lure those mashing in Igloo coolers into something more sophisticated. And that might be the appeal to some. For me, I was looking for a mash tun as I moved from e-BIAB to a 2-vessel electric system. I wanted a mash tun that’s only job was mashing. The InfuSsion provided that simplicity of function, while still being technologically advanced.

Two Vessel Setup

The InfuSsion mash tun is a combination stainless steel kettle and insulated cooler. The inside of the mash tun is durable stainless steel, as is the outside. In between is sandwiched high density insulating foam to make a full inch of engineered layers. With the foam inside the walls you can’t directly heat the mash tun as you’d risk melting the foam. Of course with the foam in there, it means you’re less likely to need to add heat.

Reflectix BP24050 24-Inch-by-50-Foot Bubble Pack Insulation [mash tun insulation & cooler hack] – $36.80, best price

Reflectix BP24050 24-Inch-by-50-Foot Bubble Pack Insulation

Reflectix BP24050 24-Inch-by-50-Foot Bubble Pack Insulation


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Reflective insulation for use in a crawl space, attic, wall, metal buildings, and post and frame structures
  • Fiber free, environmentally safe, easy to install, and lightweight
  • Made up of seven layers, two outer layers of aluminum foil reflect most of the heat which hits them
  • Each layer of foil is bonded to a tough layer of polyethylene for strength
  • Two inner layers of bubble pack resist heat flow, while a center layer of polyethylene gives additional strength, 24″ x 50′ roll

Possible homebrew application: Use to insulate to your compatible mash tun or HLT to help maintain temperatures.  Cooler hack… I use this for my coolers (regular ole cooler as a cooler, not mash tun).  I cut a piece to fit the top of each cooler (fitting it to the cooler size as tightly as possible) and place on top of food or ice to provide an additional layer of insulation.

1/4/18 9:30 AM Central: This has dropped to $36.80.  That’s a 48% discount and the best historical direct from Amazon price I found, notwithstanding Lighting Deals or coupons. Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly. Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change. Prices and availability were accurate at the time this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit Amazon.

I use this same cooler for my mash tun and it has worked great for me for years.  It holds temperature very well and it has held up like a champ.  It would also make a good HLT.  This has a lid that’s pressure fit (not threaded).  Since the lid isn’t threaded, you can fit a temperature probe underneath [See: Hands On: ChefAlarm Thermometer].

If you want to convert this to a mash tun…. considertn_img_0322-300x225 this conversion kit from Brew Hardware.  Check my Review
