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.

Making a Mash Tun MLT – Start All Grain Brewing!

What’s a Mash Tun?

A mash tun is a container that holds grain and warm water.  The warm water activates enzymes in the malt and converts complex carbohydrates to yeast-friendly simple sugars.

A mash tun can be as simple as a bucket. Many homebrewers convert coolers to mash tuns.  Those have the advantage of insulation. That insulation helps maintain a steady temp throughout the mash process. Kettles are also regularly used as mash tuns and there are also some purpose built stainless mash tuns. An example of that is Ss Brewtech’s InfuSsion Mash Tun.

Components of a Mash Tun

  • A container – Examples: bucket, cooler, kettle, keggle or a purpose built vessel
  • Filter device/mechanism – Examples: false bottom, bazooka screen
  • Ball valve and tubing
  • Optional – sparge arm, thermometers
