Minibrew® Hot Liquor Tank 15
The Hot Liquor Tank 15 makes grain brewing easier and much more fun. It is designed for mash water preparation and hot liquor storage.
We recommend you use it with our Minibrew® MiniMash Lauter Tun 15. Place the tank on a shelf above your MiniMash Lauter Tun so you can gravity feed to your mash operation. Use a seal less magnetic drive polysulfone pump to move the hot water from the kettle or heating source to the Hot Liquor Tank 15. You can also recirculate the water through the mash until you have extracted all the sugars. A one inch thread is included, see lower right in picture.
For those who wish to add a heating element, you will need a temperature control unit to regulate the heating element. Some brewers may build their own heating control unit. Search the web for instructions. Put the temperature control at your finger tips.
The resistance to energy transfer is slightly greater than stainless steel. In other words, our plastic holds the heat longer than stainless steel. We include with your purchase a 1/2” ball valve, 2 barb fittings for hoses, 1” heating element thread and plug, one extra 1/2 inch thread and plug near the top, thermometer thread plug, sight glass and tank with lid. Gallon markings are on the side by the Teflon sight glass. Our HDPE tanks will hold boiling water as the plastic melts at 240 degrees. The tank is 17 1/4 inches wide at the lid, the widest point and 22 1/4 inches from top to bottom.
Included with purchase are 1/2" ball valve, 2 barb fittings, 1" thread with plug, thermometer thread and plug, sight glass and tank with lid. The thermometer is sold separately. This tank makes grain brewing easy and fun!
