Description 

• Simplicity - No adjustments, just plug it in and wait for the green light
• Quality double wall construction for more efficiency
• Choose from 750 or 1500 watts depending on your circuit capacity

On your brew day, the last thing you want to think about is sparge water. If you want something as simple and easy to use as possible, so you can concentrate on your brewing process, the Brewer's Edge® Sparge Water Heater is the solution. It heats up to 4 gallons of sparge water to precisely 168° F., and is a perfect companion to the Mash & Boil, Grainfather, or Robobrew. 

Features a preset temperature of 168° F. which is digitally controlled to plus or minus 2°.  The great thing about this is how simple it is - just fill the Sparge Water Heater with the gallons desired, plug in, and choose either 750 or 1500 watts depending on how loaded your circuit is. Then wait for the green light and you are ready to sparge!  It generally takes about 45 minutes to heat 4 gallons when using 1500 watts, or 2 hours when using 750 watts (this time can be shortened considerably by filling the unit with hot water from your tap).  Double wall construction means the Brewer's Edge Sparge Water Heater holds heat better than competing units, and costs less to run as it is better insulated than a single wall heater. It will run for hours and hold your sparge water ready at precisely 168° F. 

The included lock open valve will dispense 2 quarts in 45 seconds, and will accept ½" interior diameter silicone tubing, such as our item J58 at right (sold per foot).

All 304 stainless construction.  22" tall, 12" wide.

NOTE: This is for heating sparge water water only, as the sight glass would be very difficult to clean if filled with a mash or malt solution.

Seems solid
I’ve only used it twice so far. When both heating elements are on it heated up 4.5 gallons under an hour.  I don’t know how accurate the gallon markings on sight glass viewer  checked but they seem close. No valve issues.  It seems solid and simple to operate. Recommed to any home brewer. Great addition to any elecetric brewery but seems to be equally useful for the BIAB as well.

Worked great for first outing
Recently purchased, I used the Brewers Edge Sparge Water Heater along with an electric brew system. The sparge water heater worked flawlessly, most notably heated the water to 168 degF in about 30 minutes. I was considering an”Igloo Cooler” until I found this solution, which allows you to heat the sparge water in parallel with the brew system, reducing brew session hours. Great purchase!

Can the spigot be changed out to accommodate 1/4 turn valve so that camlock fittings could be used to transfer water?
No, it has a plastic spigot with an integral sight tube. ½" silicone tubing can be affixed to the end of this valve for transferring.

Can I adjust the sparge temperature?
No, it is preset to 168° F, plus or minus 2°. This is much more accurate than competing units.
