Brew like a pro with the BrewBuilt Low Rider BrewSculpture. Our brewing systems were first introduced in the 1990’s and now have over two decades worth of R&D and customer feedback built into their design. There’s a reason why top-level breweries like Sierra Nevada and Russian River use a BrewBuilt BrewSculpture for training, ingredient testing and pilot batches. 

Touchscreen Control Panel
From heating strike water to whirlpooling hop additions, you’ll orchestrate your entire brew day from our custom designed 7” touchscreen control panel. Unlike other systems, all of the heating elements and pumps can be controlled from a single touchscreen controller. Program your mash steps and the controller will do the rest—cycling heating elements and kicking on pumps to recirculate wort as needed. It also offers programmable delayed start so you can heat your strike water in advance, boil addition timers to remind you when to add hops or clarifiers, as well as manual control of your pumps and linear power control of the electric elements.

Control Panel Key Features:

  • Delayed Start Timer - program your BrewSculpture to have water heated by the time you're ready to start brewing.
  • Programmable HERMS Mash Steps - choose from 3 preset mash schedules or custom design your own with up to 5 steps. From there the control panel guides your mash through the temp raises and time rests automatically.
  • Always Hot - controller maintains the Hot-Liquor tank temperature you choose by turning the element off and on automatically.
  • Auto Sparging - sparge water flow is controlled automatically with integrated Mash Tun float switch.
  • Adjustable Boil Vigor - opt for a slow simmer, a rolling boil, or anywhere in between.
  • Timer Alarms - built in boil timers remind you when to add hops, finings, or anything else.
  • Manual Mode - allows you to control pumps for anything you want such as cleaning.
  • Control Panel Mode - allows PID control of the Kettles for alternate uses like Sous Vide, long hop stands, etc.

Automatic HERMS Mashing
Mash temps are maintained via the HERMS coil made from convoluted copper tubing. This top-of-the-line coil design offers unparalleled efficiency while gently heating your wort. Choose from your saved mash schedules or program one on the fly. When the mash begins, the controller will automatically maintain the temperature of the hot liquor bath that the HERMS coil rests in. When the wort temp drops below your set point, the controller will turn on the pump to circulate wort through the coil. You can also set the pump to continuously circulate wort for the whole mash if you prefer, and the HLT will continue to maintain your mash temp automatically. When each mash step is complete, the controller will power up the element to raise the temperature of the HLT and begin the next step. The HERMS coil can also double as your wort chiller when the boil is over and quickly cools wort thanks to the twisted pattern of the copper tubing.

SlingBlade Electric Elements
Our Electric BrewSculpture offers a unique heating element that you won’t find anywhere else. The SlingBlade's unique crescent-shaped design positions all of the heating power on one side of the kettle, sending thermal energy upward to the surface that then cascades downward on the opposite side of the kettle. This movement creates a dynamic turbulence that evenly distributes heat while creating a vigorous, rolling boil. Other heating elements stick right out into the middle of the kettle or use a full circle design that rings the kettle wall. This can cause an obstruction for immersion chillers or make it difficult to stir without banging into the element. The SlingBlade was designed to avoid these issues. By remaining on one side of the kettle, the element will be out of the way of your immersion chiller, and since the element follows the curvature of the kettle wall, it won't interfere with the flow of wort during whirlpool. And thanks to its ultra-low watt density, the SlingBlade won’t scorch your wort and cause caramelization issues.

The Ultimate Sparge Arm
No other system protects against hot side aeration quite like the BrewSculpture. While other systems simply pump wort back to the top of the mash tun and let it splash back down over the grain bed, the Ultimate Sparge Arm will make sure your wort circulates with virtually zero aeration. The Ultimate Sparge Arm features adjustable height and adjustable flow. Depending on what beer you’re brewing, the surface of the mash will be at different heights. Simply lower the sparge arm to just below the surface of the mash and your recirculation will be splash-free. The ball valve at the inlet of the sparge arm allows you to dial in the flow and reduce turbulence as you see fit.

Custom Welded Frame Made in the USA
Every BrewBuilt BrewSculpture is made to order and built around a custom TIG welded 304 stainless steel stand. While other companies cut corners by using generic stainless steel tables for their systems, our extra beefy stand is fabricated in our California-based metal shop and designed to outlive even you. Every stand comes with rolling casters and folding handlebar so you can easily move your system with ease whenever needed.

The perforated stainless mash screen is reinforced for use with pump recirculation and includes a silicone gasket to make a perfect seal with the kettle wall. Internally etched volume markers make mash water additions super easy.

The lid notch is super handy for hanging hop bags, using an immersion chiller, etc., but when not is use an included silicone plug seals the notch. The bottom of the boil kettle is tri-clad with a 4mm aluminum core sandwiched between two layers of 304 stainless. The aluminum core eliminates scorching and the cleaning that comes with a scorched kettle.

Can you brew a 5 gal batch in the 10 gal system?
Mike Frenette on Jan 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Mike - Yes, you should still access all probes to maintain temps and the sparge arm is height adjustable.
Can you simultaneously boil first batch and heat up strike water for second batch?

Is it possible to brew smaller batches than 1BBL with the XXL VErsion? What is the min size? regards
Sascha Gut on Apr 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Sascha - according to our R&D team, the systems are designed to do a specific batch size. Going over and under is possible but how much depends on how the brewer adapts their process. The float switch shuts off power at a pretty low level. The mash tun needs to be at least 15% full to cover the float switch, and you may also be limited to how low you can put the sparge arm. If you're looking to do a half batch, say 15 gallons, you should be fine on the 1BBL system. However, a batch size as low as 5 gallons may not be possible.
