Custom Kettles

Here at Spike Brewing we have the unique ability to make custom designed kettles since we do our own fabrication right here in Milwaukee, WI. We can add a 1.5" or 2" tri-clamp for a heating element to turn your kettle electric, an extra whirlpool feature, HERMS coil ports or pretty much anything else you've been dreaming up.  

Start building your custom kettle!

If you are interested in quoting or purchasing a custom kettle, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the Custom Kettle Template 
  2. Sketch up your custom kettle(s) on the template (select size and kettle use)
  3. Create a ticket with our Customer Service team with the completed template attached and include any additional questions you may have


    From there, Team Spike will:

    • Have the drawing reviewed by our engineers
    • Answer any questions you may have sent

    We’re always willing to help draw up your idea and give experienced feedback on your design. Working lead times are 1 week from the time of your purchase.


    Depending on what size kettle you want, how many ports and all the accessories you'd like to add to your custom kettle order, prices will vary from customer to customer. Based on the customized work and labor that goes into your specific kettle, there is a small added cost included.
