Welcome to our new web site. Please note that we are accepting pre-orders only at this time for our new system design. We are awaiting delivery of key components that we expect to arrive in mid-February. Pre-Orders placed for systems will ship late February to early March. We are excited to offer this new product. We do have a few legacy systems left at discounted prices. Contact us if you have an interest. Since we have completely redesigned our web site, please let us know if we have any errors, etc. Thank You and Cheers!
BIG NEWS! We have been very busy at Brew-Boss® designing a completely new system from scratch! The legacy Brew-Boss® system utilized off the shelf components for the most part. Our kettles were Bayou Classic turkey fryers, our heater elements were standard residential water heater elements, and our temperature sensors were hand fabricated from commercially available components. Buying off the shelf components meant we had to modify and re-purpose those items to be used for brewing. They were functional, but to be honest, looked handmade and we always wanted to do better.
So, we have completely redesigned the Brew-Boss® System using purpose built components. We've designed, and had custom fabricated, kettles bearing our own logo. These kettles are equipped with TIG welded Tri-Clover type ferrules for the heater and valve. They are durable and look awesome. Better Yet, we have controllers starting at $650 and complete systems starting as low as $1,209 for a 15 gallon system.
We've also designed our own heating elements and had them fabricated specifically for us. They are designed specifically for brewing. They are made from shiny, durable Stainless Steel and clean up very easily. They look brand new after each brew session. They are 100% stainless steel and will not rust!
Now the Bigger News...we have developed a new technology we are calling the COFI filter. COFI is an acronym for
The Brew-Boss COFI filter is an exciting new patent pending technology that optimizes the efficiency of Brew-In-A-Bag (BIAB) type brewing. The filter is manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel mesh which holds the grain during the mash process, but allows water to flow through.
A central infusion tube, that is perforated with a series of flow-matched holes, extends all the way to the bottom of the filter.
During the mash cycle, water/wort is continuously pumped from the bottom of the kettle to the top of the filter, into the central infusion tube, where it is forced through the grain bed. Water passing through the grain bed flows out of the filter to the bottom of the kettle. This Center Out Forced Infusion (COFI) technology assures that all the grain is in constant contact with the mash water and that there are no dead spots. No stirring is required as the system is self agitating and efficiency is thereby optimized. The COFI filter is also very easy to clean, simply invert it in a sink and spray it with your sprayer! Because it is made of stainless steel, it will not rust and will last indefinitely.
The central infusion tube is also connected to a false bottom. After mashing is completed, the elbow fitting at the top of the COFI filter is exchanged with a lifting ring. When removing the filter, the filter is lifted by the lift ring. This brings the false bottom towards the fixed cover, allowing the weight of the filter to squeeze the grain. This squeezing action extracts much of the trapped sweet wort from the grain.
The Brew-Boss® system uses the same Brew-Boss®
controller as we provided in the past. So you still get the voice directed prompts and all the other perks the Android Tablet based software offers. The Brew-Boss app is free in the Google Play store. Load it onto your tablet and give it a try.
If you are unfamiliar with the Brew-Boss®
home brew system, it is an all electric home brewing system that allows
home brewers to brew extract or all-grain recipes with complete and
accurate automatic control of temperature and timing. Automated control
provides consistent results every time. No other system available
offers this level of automated brew control.
It actually talks you through the brew process.
systems are available in 10, 15, and 20 gallon versions in both 120VAC
or 240VAC options. The 10 gallon version produces a 5 gallon net batch,
the 15 gallon version is capable of 5 or 10 gallon net batches, and the
20 gallon system is capable of 10 and 15 gallon batches.
Controller is also available separately, for those that want to build
their own electric brewery or convert their existing gas fired systems
to the convenience and safety of electric. For the do-it-yourselfer,
there is also a Brew-Boss "Brain" kit that supplies the brains of the
controller so you can add it to your existing electric brewery panel or
build your own panel.
Brew-Boss® System utilizes a microprocessor based control box that
controls an electric heater element, a recirculation pump, and an
optional Hops-Boss® automatic hops feeder (Coming Soon!). A
quick-connect digital temperature probes is also supplied with each
controller communicates wirelessly via Wi-Fi with an Android Tablet
App. This awesome App provides a color touch screen graphical user
interface that allows complete control over the brewing process. The
controller walks you through the brewing process using textual and voice
prompts. All steps and parameters relative to the brewing process can
be modified by the user to control nearly any brew setup or brew
process. It operates in a completely automatic mode, or can be operated
in manual mode for those that want manual control over their brewing
base system provided operates as an Electric Brew-in-a-Bag (E-BIAB)
system with a single kettle, and we still offer this less costly version of the product. The BIAB methodology is just now starting
to become popular because of its simplicity and relatively low cost of
equipment relative to traditional 3 vessel brewing systems that utilize
separate vessels for heating, mashing, and boiling. The
Brew-Boss® system is designed to use a single vessel with a false bottom that prevents the "strainer bag" from touching the heating element.
Here is a great writeup on BIAB as well Called "The Best Way to Brew". It discusses using propane (yuk), but the process description is helpful for those that have never BIAB brewed before.
The Brew-Boss® controller
will also control 2 and 3 vessel systems as well as your electric RIMS
or HERMS! Simply add prompts in your step definitions to tell you when
to change temperature probes, heater element, or pump.
The system is completely electric, which eliminates the dangers and
inconveniences of gas (propane) based systems. Electricity is also much
more efficient and economical than propane.
The Brew-Boss® System is a great value and competitively priced.
