  • 240 Volt Brew-Boss Controller V2.0
  • 10" Android Tablet with the Latest Brew-Boss App Installed
  • Brew-Boss 4 Inch Digital Temperature Probe
  • Weldless Direct Contact Temperature Probe Kettle Mount
  • 15 Gallon Brew-Boss Kettle with Cover and Deluxe Accessory Port

  • Stainless Steel Lift Ring for COFI Filter
  • High Quality Teflon Pipe Thread Tape

The controller is supplied with 15 foot long 10 gauge cable for powering the unit with 240 Volts AC. The 240VAC power cable is supplied with a molded L6-30P twist lock plug. It is highly recommended that you install a Ground Fault Interrupter (GFI) type breaker on the circuit(s) you will be plugging the Brew-Boss into or use our inline GFI unit. If you need a plug other than the L6-30P provided, you may simply cut the supplied plug off and connect a plug that matches your outlet.

The controller requires a 220-240 Volt circuit of at least 30 Amps with a GFI breaker (or our inline GFI) installed to operate. The controller has a single 240 Volt L6-30R twist lock output plug that connects to a Brew-Boss Heater using the supplied L6-30 extension cord. A digital temperature probe is included with this controller. The controller is shipped with a L6-30R twist lock receptacle for a heater that mates to the Brew-Boss integrated elements. If you have a different heater, you can simply cut the end of the heater cable off and wire to your heater.

Included OptionsIn addition to the above items, this system includes the following options:

Pick-Up Tube- This durable Tri-Clamp pickup tube is constructed of beautiful polished 304 stainless steel. It attaches directly to the Tri-Clamp ferrule on the Brew-Boss kettle using a Tri-Clamp gasket and Tri-Clamp Clamp (gasket and clamp not included). It allows you to drain nearly all of the wort out of your kettle without tipping the kettle and disrupting the trub on the bottom. Mount this between your kettle and valve or between your kettle and pump. Includes pick-up tube with 1.5" Tri-Clamp ferrules.

Swirl-Boss - This is a nifty whirlpool device that mounts directly to the accessory port on the kettle and allows you to whirlpool your wort before transferring to your fermenter. Special reduced price when ordered with a Brew-Boss system.

Trivet Set - These Three (3) silicone trivets are great for placing your Brew-Boss kettle on to prevent heat transfer to your table or bench. The protect the surface and keep the kettle from accidentally being slid around, so they add safety as well. We sell these for less than our local Walmart does, so if you need them, add them to the system order.

Fill-Boss Counter Pressure Bottle Filler: Multi Filler Kit Allows 4 Fill Bosses to Fill from a Common Source

Brew Boss offers a Multi-Filler Kit that allows up to 4 Fill-Boss Fillers to be ganged off a common source. Most commercial operations have from 2 to 4 fillers ganged together to increase production. We have found that we can fill about 2 cases of standard 12 ounce bottles in 20-30 minutes with 2 people and two fillers. One person fills and the other caps, labels, wipes, and places in case. We have a customer filling 22 ounce bomber bottles and they report being able to do 1 case (12 bottles) every 10 minutes with 2 fillers and 2 people.

The only moving part in the filler is the electric solenoid valve. These valves can become plugged if filling beverages with sediment in them. We recommend purchasing the optional inline filter if you are filling beverages with visible sediment. The valves can also become "sticky" if not cleaned properly and routinely. For this reason, we recommend purchasing a few spare solenoid valves (they are easy to change) in the event a valve becomes plugged or sticky and needs to be cleaned. Simply install the spare and clean the valve off-line.

If you need to fill a bottle with a mouth diameter greater than 1.25", you can simply replace the bottle seal we provide with any standard brewery grade drilled rubber stopper. For example, a size 11.5 drilled stopper fits the opening of HydroFlasks perfectly. We don't supply these stoppers, but they can be found at any homebrew or brewery supply retailer or online.
