Recommended 3-Vessel Systems For Typical Batch Sizes:
5 gallon batch: 10/10/10 (HLT/Mash/Boil)
10 gallon batch: 15/15/20 (HLT/Mash/Boil)
15-20 gallon batch: 20/20/30 (HLT/Mash/Boil)
30 gallon batch: 30/30/55 (HLT/Mash/Boil)
Key to top performance of your new BoilerMaker™ brew pot is selecting the size that best fits your brewing needs. Selecting too small, or too big of a brew pot, mash tun, or hot liquor tank (HLT) can cause frustration and poor performance.
Boil kettles: We recommend a boil kettle approximately 2 times the size of the finished batch size. Although this may sound like a bit much, a 10 gal batch will typically start with 13-14 gal pre-boil once you compensate for cooling contraction, transfer losses, and boil off. This will allow for a reasonable head space to reduce boil-over problems. For example, if you're a 10gal batch brewer, you'd select the 20 gal BoilerMaker™ brew pot as your boil kettle.
Mash Vessels: We recommend filling your mash vessel no more than 75% of capacity. This will allow sufficient space for dough-in of the grains and additions of sparge water and sparge arms, etc. Each pot's description (below) includes various water to grist ratios to assist you in your selection. Minimum volumes are to ensure that the thermometer probe is adequately submerged, and also so you have an adequate grain bed depth for proper wort filtration. The BoilerMaker™ brew pot sizes have been designed to seamlessly blend from size to size, so you'll never need to sacrifice.
Hot Liquor Tanks: We recommend sizing your HLT the same size as your mash tun to ensure you have plenty of sparge water available on brew day.
