Spike Trio Systems

One of the most popular brewing systems available is a HERMS brewing system. The key feature to the HERMS system is the heat exchanger located inside the HLT which is used to heat the mash. This gives precise control of mash temps and prevents any scorching of the grain. Used by both home and professional brewers alike, the ease of use, repeatability and temperature control will leave you with serving your best beer from this day out.


What makes the Spike Trio System the clear choice?

In addition to offering 0% financing over 24 months, we also give you the ability to increase your production and cleaning speed with our double batch panel upgrade! The upgrade allows you to heat elements in the HLT and BK simultaneously. Heating strike water in your HLT for the second batch while boiling your first batch makes for a quick double brew day! Also, while boiling, heat water in HLT for use in system cleaning quickly after boil is over.  


Quality Comes Standard

During the brewing process, a lot of steam is produced, which ultimately finds its way to your ceiling and walls. That’s not good. We’ve developed our new Steam Condenser Lid to solve the problem. They’re designed to transform steam into water that can be routed to a drain or bucket, keeping your room moisture-free. This solution has proven to be quite popular with the Spike community—so popular that we’ve decided to make it a standard feature on all our Trio Systems at no additional cost! How’s that for problem solving?




“The system, especially as we have it set up, is really efficient. I'm getting about 84% efficiency with my smaller beers (4.5%-6%) and 75-80% on the higher gravity beers.

I think the biggest reason for this is the fact that the mash is constantly recirculating/vorlaufing. It allows the brewer to stir the whole mash more often as well as keeping a constant flow through the grain bed helping the enzymes break down starches more effectively.”
