 The MKII Pump from Keg King is a magnetic drive high temperature pump capable of pumping  hot wort at temperatures of up to 248° F.  It can pump up to 5 gallons per minute, making it perfect for 5 to 20 gallon systems.  The maximum height it can pump is 10’ although gallons per minute will be reduced at higher pumping elevations.

  The pump head and impeller are constructed of food grade polysulphone. The magnetic drive acts as a clutch allowing the user to put back pressure on the pump to slow down flow.  Like all magnetic drive wort pumps, it is not self priming - you must flood the pump head before turning on the pump.  The pump has ½” BSP male fittings on the inlet and outlet, which are compatible with all our ½” female NPT fittings. The inlet is in the center.

 The magnetic drive ensures no lubricated bearings are in contact with the liquid at all, so you can be sure there is no chance of any contamination of the liquid being pumped. The pump features a 67” power cord, and a mounting plate for permanent mounting.  The pump is 7¾” in overall length, and 3¼” wide including the mounting plate. The polysulfone head can be mounted at any angle on the pump to fit your application (an optional stainless head, William’s item Q80, is also available).   Shop around and compare, we think this is the best value currently available in a high temperature wort transfer pump.

 Important Safety Notice: This pump, like all 110 volt items that run in potentially wet areas, should be plugged into a GFI protected outlet for safety.

Great Lil Pump!
Used in 1 batch so far and worked like a champ. It is so quiet compared to the chugger I used to have and half the price even with the stainless head upgrade. Just make sure you run on a GFCI and get the stainless head. Easy to take apart and clean. Great pump for a great price!

Great inexpensive pump!
I've been wanting to add a pump to my system for a while now, but couldn't pull the trigger on the other higher priced pumps.  When I saw this one come up, I ordered it immediately!  What a great little pump.  It's quiet, and really pushes out the wort!!  I did get the Stainless head, so I  can't speak to the plastic one, but the stainless one is awesome!  I am considering buying another one just to make my transfer easier.  I would recommend this pump to anyone in the market for one.

Thoroughly Impressed
Finally got my brew system reworked and added 2 pumps. The first one I ordered had bad threads on the output. One call to customer service and a new pump head was on the way. Once both pumps were hooked up I could not believe how well they worked and how quiet they are when running. Ran them on remote controlled sockets so brew day was a breeze. Used one as part of my glycol chiller cooled fermentation setup and it was just as in pressie in that application. Will recommend this pump to all my homebrewing.com friends.

Great lil' pump
I use this and a little ac pump on my 10 gal 3 vessel system, and it works beautifully. I bought the stainless head right away so I'd never have to worry about the plastic one. Super quite, perfect for everything home brew!

Great little pump!
This pump is great for the price.  Although I HIGHLY recommend you also purchase the stainless head for it.  I broke the outlet fitting because I tried to overtighten my ball valve.  My fault and not any sort of indication of the quality of the pump!  Great service, price and fast shipping!

Does the pump need to be disassembled and cleaned after use, or could it be circulated with starsan and left a closed system until next brew session?
Circulated and left closed is fine, no need to disassemble between uses.

Can the flow of this pump be slowed down by connecting it to a voltage regulator or speed controller? I'm using it to recirc. my mash and it empties the mash tun of liquid before it drains back through the grain bed.
This is usually done with a restricting valve on the outlet to throttle back flow. You cannot hurt the pump, because it is magnetic drive and this will not overheat the motor.

Maybe silly question: does the pump have different speed/flow settings? Or a dial to control flow rate?
The pump only has one speed, but you can control the flow out of the pump by adding a ball valve such as our item L61.

Does the pump prime itself from the off position if the intake line is submerged?
No, the head and lines must be flooded before the pump will work.
