What is the Blichmann BrewEasy?
The BrewEasy is a revolutionary and ultra-compact all-grain brewing system that utilizes a patent-pending two kettle recirculation infusion mash process called Kettle-RIMS or K-RIMS for short. This setup gets rid of the hot liquor tank of a traditional three tier system and does away with the time consuming and somewhat complicated sparging process. Ultimately, it gives the all-grain brewer the simplicity of a brew-in-a-bag (BIAB) system, but eliminates the cloudy wort, messy and heavy lifting, all while providing better efficiency! You also get the temperature control and ramping capabilities of a traditional RIMS system. It is simple to setup and easy to use, can fit in your closet which is great for those who live in an apartment or condo, and is a very approachable way to transition from extract to all-grain brewing.
This product comes with all the pieces you need to get the ultimate BrewEasy setup, just choose the batch size you would like to brew, and you're all set! Comes with the following:
- Two BoilerMaker brew pots (boil kettle and mash tun) and false bottom. See chart below for brew pot sizes.
- BrewEasy adapter set with plumbing hardware, AutoSparge, and necessary tubing.
- Floor Standing Burner with propane hose and regulator.
- Tower of Power temperature control module.
- Tower of Power LTE stand with March 815 pump.
**NOTE** KettleKart and Therminator plate chiller shown in the product images are sold separately.
BoilerMaker Brew Pots
This BrewEasy all-in system comes with two BoilerMaker brew pots. The upper pot is the mash tun and the lower pot is the boil kettle. Based on your chosen batch sizes, here are the pot sizes that come with the kit:
|Batch Size ||Mash Tun (upper pot) ||Boil Kettle (lower pot) |
|5 gal ||7.5 gal ||10 gal |
|10 gal ||15 gal ||20 gal |
|20 gal ||30 gal ||30 gal |
So, How Does it all Work?
Simply start with ALL of your brewing water (liquor) for your brew day and place about half in the lower pot (boil kettle) and the remainder in the upper pot (mash tun). Set your AutoSparge, turn on the pump, and add heat. The liquor will recirculate from the boil kettle, into the mash tun, and back into the boil kettle. Recirculation flow rate is controlled by included orifices, allowing for 6 flow settings from 0.5 - 2.0 gpm. When you're at your desired temperature, turn off the pump and add your malt. Maintaining your mash temp or even ramping through several temperature rests is a breeze with the Tower of Power LTE system that is included. Just set your temp and sit back. When you're through with your mash, simply turn off the pump and let all the wort from your mash tun drain into your brew kettle and boil as normal. It's as simple as that!
