US Brewing Equipment Company Aims to Make Home Brewing Easier with the Addition of its Sight-Glass Kettle
Milwaukee, WI. (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
US Brewing Equipment company, Spike Brewing LLC, which focuses on providing affordable, high-quality brewing equipment to small-craft and home-based brewers, released a new sight glass brew kettle on March 8th 2013. The company released the kettle on a pre-sale to US-based customers in the home brew market. Spike aims to simplify the brewing process for newcomers, as well as seasoned brew veterans, that are looking for ways to save time and improve their efficiency.
As its name suggests, the new kettle contains a polycarbonate sight glass, which allows users to see the volume of wort in the kettle. The site glass is removable, which makes cleaning and sanitization a snap. The sight glass is built with a return system, which allows any liquids that overflow the glass to be re-circulated back into the kettle, reducing any spattering issues. The sight glass comes protected with a stainless steel heat shield, to prevent any damage to the polycarbonate glass. An added bonus to this line of kettles is the staggered installation of the couplers, which make the pot easier to use by placing critical gauges and valves in locations that are more convenient during the brewing process. The new kettle is available in a variety of sizes, including 10, 15, 20, 25, and a whopping 45 gallons.
Like every Spike kettle, the new sight glass line is constructed with a brilliant 304 stainless steel - a favourite among brewers. The kettle has a 1mm wall/bottom thickness. The new coupler array puts the top coupler at 4” from the bottom, with the lowest coupler at 1.5” from the bottom.
Spike Brewing acknowledges that home brewers don't often have access to the resources that major breweries have, and therefore face challenges in terms of their output quality and brewing capabilities. These issues can sometimes lead to weaker beer properties, which can affect things such as taste, appearance, and the overall character of the brew. While many of these issues are determined by the brewer’s skill, a brew kettle with additional features can give home brewers better control over the final outcome of their beer. The company also reminds beginners that it's essential to procure durable equipment, since they may not be able to add new or repair their equipment immediately following any type of failure.
Spike Brewing founder, Ben Caya commented, “Getting started in home brewing can be an expensive hobby, and that's why we make kettles our customers can depend on for a reasonable price.” The company aims to encourage more people to start and continue their home brewing interests with products like their new sight-glass enhanced brew kettle. Ben Caya further commented, “We're adding a high quality, US sourced feature which will make your brew day easier and more enjoyable.” not inventing anything with this kettle. We're using a kettle with a few new additions to get people to re-invent their brewing process.”
