BrewBuilt™ Whirlpool Kettle via MoreBeer. Available in 10, 15, 22, 31 and 50 gallon sizes.
From MoreBeer: Are you looking for an awesome, easy-to-use, single vessel system to brew 10-gallon batches? The BrewZilla is the answer! This all-in-one electric brewery is the next generation of Robobrew units and comes with various improvements to electronics, components, handle design and many other aspects. The BrewZilla features built in elements for heating and boiling, a built-in pump for recirculation, an onboard water-resistant control panel for setting and monitoring temperatures, a removable grain basket, and a built-in spigot for transferring. The compact design makes this unit easy to store when not in use. Not brewing 10-gallon batches every brew day? No problem! The BrewZilla works just as well for 5-gallon batches, and with so much power, you’ll get your temperatures up even faster.

This very capable 15amp brewery has over 3 kilowatts of power so you can get up to boil in no time. 220V outlet required! The BrewZilla has been made with ultra-low watt density elements, which means less caramelization and also makes this unit capable of producing very light beers with very little maillard effect. This is also particularly useful for high gravity beers that can get some degree of scorching in other electric breweries with higher watt density.
Triple heating elements run off of a single 220 volt plug and have individual switches allowing for more control over the heating process. The elements are 2000, 1000 and 500 watts for a combined 3500 watts! Use all three elements when you need to ramp up the temperature quickly, either to quickly get to your mash temp or to rapidly go from your mash temp to boiling. Use only one of the elements when you want to hold a desired temperature.
Built in magnetic drive pump to easily recirculate the wort during the mash. We recommend getting some silicone tubing to go with the recirculation arm. This allows you more control over the recirculation and you can then use the pump to transfer your wort to your fermenter.
The digital control panel makes it easy to see the current temperature and set the temperature you want. You can also set a delayed start of up to 23 hours in advance so that you can have your water hot and ready to go when you get home from work or get up in the morning. The digital controller is also water resistant so don’t worry about spills or some water dripping down the side. This controller is built for brewing!
The brewery also includes a stainless steel malt pipe with false bottom allowing you to easily shift from mash tun to boil kettle during your brew day. The malt pipe includes a handle to lift it from the BrewZilla and tabs at the base so you can set the malt pipe over the system to let the wort drain out. It also has feet at its base to raise the malt pipe slightly off the base and help prevent clogging.
The included stainless wort chiller is shipped with bare ends so you can set it up for your situation. We list below the most common tubing and fittings to connect to a hose, hose bib, or faucet.
What MoreBeer! loves about this product: Homebrewing is trending in the direction of all-in-one, all-grain brewing systems, but there are few options when it comes to brewing 10-gallon batches. The Robobrew BrewZilla not only allows for 10-gallon batches, but the cost is half of the next comparable system. We’ve brewed on all the systems and we can truly say the Robobrew series is the easiest to use. We feel confident that a lot of first-time brewers could buy this and use it with ease. At the same time, quite a few of our experienced, all-grain brewing staff are buying these units to brew at home. The BrewZilla is considerably compact for a 10-gallon system because the pump is built-in at the bottom of the unit. When not in use, the system can be packed up into a box that is 24″ x 24″ x 34″ tall and moved around with ease, which makes it perfect for guys and gals that have space constraints. All in all a great buy and highly recommended. Please note you will need a few extra pieces of hardware to connect the wort chiller and at least 2′ of silicone tubing for the sparge arm.
