electric mash tun


Recommended Posts

Just out of curiosity, we are starting up and waiting for our licenses and we are having a hard time figuring out our mash tun situation. I'd like to be able to do 100 gallon batches and code is telling us it would be "simpler" if we went electric over boiler... (long story). This would be a short term (1 yr or so) solution. Any one use or have made an electric mash tun?

A solution might be to get an electric hot liquor tank and a regular mash tun and run it like a brewery would. Heat up water in the HLT then dough in the water/grain into your mash tun. The HLT could have a HERMS coil in the HLT so you can keep temp in the tun. It's worked for brewers for many years. As soon as we can afford it, this is the system we'll be setting up.
