Brew-Boss Accessory Port Mounted CIP Ball

CIP stands for "Clean in Place". Professional breweries use this technology to clean their brew tanks as obviously you cant carry a 15 barrel brew kettle to a sink to clean it!

This CIP ball assembly is flow matched to the Chugger and TopsFlo pumps we supply with our homebrew systems. It attaches directly to the accessory port on the Brew-Boss 10, 15, and 20 gallon kettles. It allows you to clean your kettle after a brew session very easily. No more lifting the kettle and carrying to sink!

Cleaning Process for the Brew-Boss System:

1. Pump all wort into your fermenter until the pickup tube in the kettle can no longer suck liquid as you normally would after a brew session.
2. Use a wet/dry shop vacuum or wet rags to clean the trub (debris) at the bottom of the kettle.
3. Spray the inside of the kettle with a hose fitted with a strong stream spray nozzle to remove as much debris as possible from the heating elements first then from the sides of the kettle.
4. Once you accumulate 2-3 gallons of water, pump the dirty water out of the kettle into a drain or gravity drain the kettle.
5. Using the hose with spray nozzle again, spray the inside of the kettle, heating elements first, until the water level is about 1 inch above the heating element.
6. Turn on the heater to 75% power using the power slide bar in the Brew-Boss app.
7. Install the Brew-Boss Accessory Mounted CIP Ball to the accessory port.
8. Wait for the water to get quite hot (130-150F), and turn off the heater.
9. Add appropriate amount of PBW (powdered Brewery Wash) or other cleaner to the hot water.
10. Place the cover on the kettle and make certain the valves are wide open.
11. Turn on the pump. The CIP ball should begin spinning inside the kettle and spraying water all over the inside.
12. Let the pump run for 5-10 minutes or until no debris is visible inside the kettle.
13. Pump the dirty water out of the kettle into a drain or gravity drain the kettle.
14. Using the hose with spray nozzle again, spray the inside of the kettle to rinse the cleaner out of the kettle.
15. Pump the rinse water out of the kettle into a drain or gravity drain the kettle.

The above process seems complex only in the number of steps, but it is basically doing the same few steps over and over. The benefit of this method is the kettle never needs to be lifted or tipped over and no manual scrubbing is rarely necessary.
