Brew Kettles

Stainless steel steam jacketed, gas fired, insulated boil kettles

What Are Brew Kettles And What Are They Used For?

Brew kettles are akin to a large "cooking pot" and can be used to boil water that will be transferred to a hot liquor tank, if the brewery utilizes one. They can also boil the wort once it exits the mash tun.

Glacier Tanks recommend stainless steel for brew kettles because it is a non-reactive material. This means it won't leach 'flavor' into your brew. It is also significantly easier to clean and maintain than enamel or aluminum-based brew kettles.

Glacier Tanks takes pride in our thorough quality control inspection process for all tanks. This ensures you receive a high-quality tank that meets all specifications. Learn more about our process here.

Types of brew kettles

Deciding which brewery heating option to put in place depends on a variety of factors including purchase, commissioning and running costs, versatility, scalability, brewery configuration, and application. Because brew kettles operate at very high temperatures, it is also important to consider the possibility of boil over when selecting an appropriate size.

There are three heating methods that are most commonly chosen:

Electric

Electricity offers significant temperature control throughout the brewing process and are typically the simplest to work.

The heating tube is set up in the kettle for heating efficiency. The heat is transferred to the water or wort within the vessel in its entirety.

This method is suitable for smaller brewery setups. It is generally the least costly to install.

Steam

Steam is a popular choice because it can provide a fast heating rate due to the steam jacket’s direct contact with the equipment. This makes them ideal for large brewery configurations. Steam also provides even heat distribution.

These kettles are easier to clean than electric heating. They are also versatile and flexible in terms of brewery sizing and have a reduce risk of mash or wort scorching.

Gas-direct Fire

The gas heating option consists of a gas burner that sits under a vessel of liquid, which heats the tank’s contents.

Propane and natural gas are cheaper energy sources than electricity per kilojoule, which can have a positive impact on running costs.

This heating method is suitable for large brewing setups.
