The 3 keggles are: 1. HLT (hot liquor tank) - Includes 2200 watt heating element which is controlled using the Temperature Controller. Includes ball valve and thermowell . 2. Mash Tun - with 30cm false bottom, ball valve, 3” temperature dial and ball valve 3. Kettle – Includes stainless ball valve How to use your 3 Vessel HERMs BreweryStep 1 – Heat Strike WaterPreheat water in HLT (approximately 75-80C). Step 2 – Mash Transfer water from HLT to the Mash Tun using the pump to begin mash. Once your at your desired level of strike water add your grains and stir thoughly with the Mash Paddle ensuring there are no dough balls. Step 3 – Recirculate Mash/Step Mash Use the pump to recirculate the wort through the 14 Immersion Chiller which you sit in the HLT. Ensure the HLT is at least 50% full so there is enough hot water to use as a heat exchanger and for use as your sparge water. The recirculation process will enable you to heat up the mash tun or maintain temperature, it will also help to clear your wort. Step 4 – Sparge Use the pump to pump hot water from HLT to the Mash Tun. While the hot water is entering the mash tun open the ball valve on the mash tun and using gravity drain your wort into the Kettle, try to keep the flow out of the mash tun appoximately the same as the flow into the mash tun. Step 5 – BoilAfter you have collected the desired amount of wort into your kettle turn on the element, add hops and other additions as per your recipe. Step 6 – ChillPlace the immersion chiller into the kettle with 15 minutes left in your boil to sterilise the chiller. Attach garden hose to chiller and start flow of cold tap water. Stir the kettle to accellerate the cooling process.Step 7 - Add to fermenter Using the pump trasfer your wort into your cleaned and sanitised Fermenter Note: Does not include the Stainless Bench
If you are doing a full 50L batch we would suggest adding a 2nd 2200w Element to your kettle
Note: Be aware that 2200 watt elements use almost 10 amps which is the largest amount that you can run from a standard power socket. If 2 elements are used on the brewery it is recommended to use an extension lead to connect the second element to an different circuit in your house wiring.
