New from Brew Hardware: The SpinCycle Overboard – NO DRILL Kettle Whirlpool Return

SPINCYCLE OVERBOARD, NO-DRILL KETTLE WHIRLPOOL RETURN

SpinCycle Overboard NO DRILL Kettle Whirlpool Return  from Brew Hardware


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

Brewers that use immersion chillers and also own a pump should know that recirculating the wort back into the kettle to whirlpool the wort makes for much faster cooling and will also make a concentrated pile of trub and hop particles in the center of the kettle bottom.

This is our third version of the industry leading whirpooling hardware. The original SpinCycle and SpinCycle Submerge both require a hole to be drilled into your kettle. Some people drill holes without a second thought but this one is for people who can’t or do not want to modify their kettle.

We’ve built this unit one at a time on a customer request basis for years but we’ve finally bulk manufactured them to be able to get them out faster. It starts with a length of 1/2″ OD 304 polished SS tubing that bends up and over the kettle wall, then drops straight down through a heavy duty spring clamp. Finally the bottom is bent 90 degrees to kick the output to your sidewall and make the liquid spin.

You have your choice of how the flow gets in to the unit. The cheap way is to select “open tube on the end” and then just clamp your hose over it. The more realistic option is to select “Silver soldered male Camlock” if you use camlock quick disconnects in your system. Note that in this particular case, the cam is TIG welded at our factory even though the option says “silver soldered”. This is the version shown in the main picture.

The other choice is what the maximum drop is from the top of the pot to the output tube. To be clear, these are the lengths when the tubing is slid as far down in the clamp as possible. You can easily shorten the depth by taking pressure off the spring clamp and sliding the tubing up.

Announcing: CoolBot Pro WiFi Enabled Walk-In Controller

CoolBot Pro Walk-In Cooler Controller (WiFi Enabled) FE636

CoolBot Pro Walk-In Cooler Controller (WiFi Enabled) via MoreBeer


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

The CoolBot Pro brings you all the great features of the standard CoolBot with added WiFi connectivity, allowing you to monitor and control your cold room from your smartphone through the free mobile app. The CoolBot Pro enables a standard air conditioner to cool a room or space down to 34°F. Easily installs with no tools or electrical knowledge required.

The CoolBot Pro comes paired with the Jumper WiFi relay module, which installs on the outside of your cold room. Once the jumper is connected to your wireless network, you can use the free mobile app to control your CoolBot from virtually anywhere with a WiFi connection. Monitor your cold room remotely, adjust temperatures on the fly, or program the app to send you notifications if something is amiss. Whether you’re on the go during a busy work week or taking some well-earned R&R, CoolBot Pro has your back!

Standard A/C units available from any hardware or appliance store have lots of power, but they are electronically restricted to not go below 60°F. This is because they would freeze up. Commercial refrigeration for walk-in coolers combat freeze with increased surface area on the fins and fans. Instead the CoolBot technology uses multiple sensors, a heating element and programmed micro-controller to control your air conditioner in such a way that the unit can go below 60°F and not freeze up. The CoolBot cannot give you 100% of the BTUs listed on your air conditioner, nor is suitable for large brewery or winery walk-ins. But it is perfect for wine cellars, beer storage, fermentation, and many other applications.

Easy to install within 30 minutes with no tools or electrical knowledge required. While we can’t tell you exactly what size space you can cool because of ambient temperatures and insulation factors, we recommend you google CoolBot. They have sold over 45,000 of these so there are lots of reviews and actual installs out there. We offer free shipping on this unit, ship fast from both coasts, and have great customer service.

This type of system is also very efficient. Most commercial systems are power hogs with large fans that are always running. Residential A/C units are made for efficiency. The CoolBot Pro will also shut down the compressor for a short time when the unit is running at its highest level of inefficiency, as it nears freeze up.

  • Trusted CoolBot technology now with WiFi connectivity and mobile app
  • Allows a standard window air conditioner to cool a room to 34°F
  • Interactive refrigeration for Brewing, Winemaking, Restaurants, Agricultural Purposes & More
  • Mobile app: remote temperature reading and adjustments, receive critical alerts, data storage and reporting

Announcing: The SpinCycle Whirlpool Return for Robobrew Pumped Units!

SPINCYCLE ROBO, WHIRLPOOL RETURN FOR ROBOBREW PUMPED UNITS

SPINCYCLE ROBO, WHIRLPOOL RETURN FOR ROBOBREW PUMPED UNITS from Brew Hardware


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

If you have a V3 Robobrew with the pump, you want this whirlpool. The Robobrew comes with a SS immersion chilling coil and chilling times are greatly reduced if you keep the wort stirring. You could do it with a spoon but since you already have a pump, dropping in this retrofit whirlpool will do the job for you while you kick back with a beer.

Since the V3 Robobrew’s mash re circulation tube terminates up top with a female camlock, we simply TIG welded a male camlock to some custom bent 3/8″ OD SS tubing that goes up, over, and then down to about the 3 gallon mark.

NOTE: We have only verified compatibility with most recent V3 units.
