Description

Preheat your mash before beginning the brewing process with this 1000W Electric Bucket Heater. This handy little tool works in conjunction with a product like the Ranco or Johnson temperature controller by enabling you to set an exact hot liquid temperature on the controller, and then attaching it to the bucket heater. The temperature controller will turn off the bucket heater once it reaches your desired temperature. Our bucket water heater is designed to use with water in a bucket or cooler where an open flame cannot be used, and you can even use it to heat a bucket of water for cleaning with a powdered brewery wash.

This water bucket heater measures 17 inches from the handle to the tip and comes with a 6-foot long cord. It requires at least 6 inches of water for full submersion, and it can only be used with a maximum depth of 14 inches.  Unit has stainless steal heating element and guard.  Does not include clip for mounting. 


Please Note - Having electrical devices around liquid can be hazardous, and should not be left unattended. Please use caution while using this device, and read the instruction manual prior to use.

Slow to heat, losing effectiveness
When I first got this, it would heat my strikewater to about 150f overnight in the garage. Ambient temps were cold, cold, cold.

Now, after a few months, it can only heat to about 110f in the same amount of time. Ambient temps are now warmer. I'm left to believe this thing is losing some effectiveness. Pretty disappointing.

It is still a nice headstart, but I find myself having to use propane to get up to strike temps more than I want.

Like this alot
I use it throughout brew day along side propane. Whatever btu's I get out of it are cheaper than propane.

Works great in a Corny keg.
I keep a Corny keg 1/2 full of PBW solution. This works great to heat it.
Then I dump in conical or keg washer as needed. When done I pour back into corny keg and use for a few more rounds of cleaning. Also a good way to heat rinse water.

Great for heating sparge water (overnight)
Another name for this product is a bucket heater. I use it to heat 8 - 10 gallons of strike water in a Keggle. (more than 10gallons and you'll start covering the plastic parts of the heater). I want to warn you, this thing is SLOWWWWWWW. I turn it on when I go to bed and let it run overnight. My water is at about 170F when I get up. It gives me a great start on my day when I have my strike water and crushed grains waiting on me in the morning. I'll give this four stars just because of it's slowness.... but then again, it is probably the fastest that you'll get out of 120V.
