What is a steam condenser? It is a device that sprays a fine mist of tap water on steam, causing it to condense into water and run off. This unit allows electric brewing indoors with a Brewzilla, Digiboil, Mash & Boil, Anvil Foundry™, or Grainfather without steaming up your house. It addition, sealing your unit with a steam condenser conserves power and increases boil intensity, as there is less area for the heat to escape. Keep in mind it also reduces boil off, so you will end up with less boil evaporation. There is a water use cost to this, as it uses about 10 gallons of cold tap water per hour of boiling to do its condensing (although this 140°F.runoff water can be collected and reused).
To use, attach this to a distilling Lid with a 2” Tri-Clamp outlet (order our Bulkhead item Z56 to add a Tri-Clamp outlet to any 47mm hole distilling lid), and attach ¼" inner diameter water supply tubing to the barbed inlet, which also is 6.5mm DuoTight compatible.
To make this work, it needs full 30 PSI or greater house water pressure on the inlet. For the hot ‘exhaust’ water, a ½” hose barb is on the outlet, and you can run this hot water directly into a collection bucket, or out into the garden with ½” interior diameter hose (our item J16, order by the foot) that you purchase separately.
Purchase our optional Brewzilla Steam Condenser Tubing Hookup Kit to attach your house water pressure to the Condenser inlet.
