Made from high quality 304 Stainless Steel, this condenser lid is ideal for apartment or basement brewers who struggle managing steam and condensation during brewday. Easy to use and assemble, can be used with a wide range of configurations. Comes with removable end cap for adding hops, yeast nutrient or whirlfloc during the boil. (Use gloves, it will be hot!).
This steam condenser set can be compatible with the 35L or 65L BrewZilla/DigiBoil with the stainless distillation lid and 2 Inch Bulkhead. This unit can allow brewing indoors without that pesky sticky steam gumming up your freshly painted interior! The End Cap can be removed for brewing salts/hops and other brewing essentials to be added during the boil. Please note hot steam through this port can lead to serious scalding, please use heatproof gloves. With the new Pro Distillation Lid, the condenser can be attached directly to the 35L unit's 2" T.C. ferrule or to the 65L unit's 4" T.C. ferrule using a 4" x 2" T.C. reducer. The Pro Distillation Lid also features a 3" sight glass disc that can be removed to address foaming issues or to add hops or other boil additions.
Not only will you get to the boil faster, but you will use less power overall to maintain a rolling boil as there will be less area for the heat to escape. No need to install inside a kitchen, or in the garage with a special range hood. Simply attach this to the Condenser Lid and run your kitchen tap or garden hose to the Duotight-compatible inlet. You don't not need super-fast flow rate to cool boiling steam into liquid. Different to distillation where you require the distillate to be under a certain temperature so that ethanol doesn't evaporate from the liquid at a high rate, with boiling wort you just need enough to form a liquid! Pretty simple.
Eco-Friendly option if you have the means to save/collect the coolant water. Can be re-used on the garden or for cleaning later on. Please note the water discharging will be very hot!
The Spray head can condense 0.42 gal (1.6 L) per minute while connected to 100 psi mains water.
Caution: You will need to remove the Steam Condenser when you reach boil to manage the hot break and ensure you don't have a boil over when you reach boiling temperatures. Once you've completed that step, you can reattach the Condenser and leave it in place for the remainder of the boil.

NOTE: The kit does not include the Monotight adapter and garden hose QD shown in the example photo. The text in the photo showing the Duotight compatible inlet elbow states 6.5 mm; it is actually 6.35 mm.
