Electric Brewing Update 4

Posted by Brett Mason on February 28, 2015 at 9:48pm 0 Comments

Made a big step towards my goal of going fully electric today. The HLT is now using two 10 amp feeds with two elements and it looks like I have enough power to give a decent boil.

The initial driver to add more power was the 95 minutes it took a single 2kw element to heat about 40 litres up to mash in temperature which is a big delay at the start of brew day. Normally I just heat about 20 litres for mash in which is closer to 40 minutes but I was trying out no sparge…

The beer robot lives! (my new electric brewery losses its virginity)

Posted by DMAC on December 30, 2014 at 12:30am 7 Comments

I've been putting together an electric brewery for about 6 months now. Yesterday she had her first run.

The name beer robot comes from my 5 year old daughter who associates the lights and flashing displays with robots. I think its a pretty good application of mechatronics which is what robotics is called these days from what I can tell.…

Kauri Road Brewery 2 final post – it's a wrap

Posted by Barry on December 8, 2014 at 9:07pm 23 Comments

Hey,

So after a wet run and autotune it was time. Time to brew and no more procrastinating.

I started contemplating this build nearly 2 years ago and starting collecting parts about a full year ago. It's been 19 months since I brewed at home.

Brew day on Sunday 7 December 2014 started really late, I had to pick up the kids from their grandparents and do some other stuff but in truth I was scared. Scared at how much more involved the process might be with 2 pumps…
