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 (K-RIMS). 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. Now with the electric version, you can also keep your brew day inside, without having to use propane or natural gas.
This is a great option for brewers just getting started in All Grain Brewing and do not have Blichmann Engineering BoilerMaker kettles, a TOWER of POWER temperature control module, or a pump. TOWER of POWER control module stand adds wort sampling valve, stuck mash alarm, and visual flow meter, GFCI protections, pump and pump mount, sensor fitting, and flow throttling from a full sized stand.
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:
G2 BoilerMaker boil kettle (lower pot)
G2 BoilerMaker mash tun (upper pot)
False bottom for mash tun
AutoSparge for mash tun
Adapter lid kit
March 815 pump
Heat source (240V Boil Coil)
Tower of Power controller (electric)
Tower of Power control module stand
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:
I have been brewing beer in 5 gallon batches for about 4 years with an 8 gallon brew pot on a propane burner and manually sparging with kettles of water heated on a stove.
I am looking at the 5 Gallon G2 BrewEasy Electric 120V Turnkey Full Kit as the first step in scaling to more production. I have a few questions:
- What is the performance difference between the 120V and the 240V system. (I assume both will hold a given temperature and bring 8 gallons of wort to a boil without trouble)
- What is the amperage draw of the 120 Volt system?
- Do the Mash tun and the Brew kettle each have their own heating elements.
- Where does the heated sparge water come from? Is it heated by the system or separately.
- Does the system come with any cooling ability at all? If so what kind?
- How long will your holiday pricing be in place

Thank you for your inquiry. Blichmann has not divulged the technical specs with this unit. It best to contact Blichmann directly. This unit is a rims system. So essentially the water is collected and heated to the mash temp is recirculated over the grain. In this setup it trickles down and gets collected in the bottom kettle and pumped back up to the top to start the cycle all over. When addressing cooling, it would turn the elements off to control the unit from heating past its set point. And to transfer the wort to a fermenter its best to use the blichmann plate chiller. that would still require aux water supply. Holiday sales may be unitl Christmas Day, may extend to the new year?
