Spike Tank

13 Reviews

We call it The Tank for a reason. It's as structurally sound as you'll ever find, features complete U.S. welded fittings, is bottom draining and has four sturdy splayed legs to keep it balanced and gives you room to work underneath. You simply won't find this kind of innovation with any other homebrewing product on the market. 

All Tanks come with a standard lid. If you would like to switch out a standard lid with a CIP Lid, select that add-on below and this will ship instead of the standard lid.

Note: The Tank Boil Kettle and Solo Kettle are the same base and port layout, the only difference is the Solo Kettle is only offered in 10, 15 and 20 gallon sizes. 

All 10, 15, 20 & 50 gal bottom drain Tanks will ship late July

Rock solid

I upgraded from the Solo to the Soike Trio system. Super happy with this high quality system. It cost more than some others on the market, but you get what you pay for. Buy once, cry once!

I love the Tank Solo, but...

First let me start by saying that I absolutely love the Spike Tank Solo configuration! I went with this to size down my previous single vessel system from a 20g single vessel to this 10g Tank due to the shift in how people gather and consume beer post COVID-19. The smaller size is perfect for allowing me to make 2.5g to 5g batches depending on ABV which for me is excellent because it means I'm able to brew more frequently. The Tank makes brew day unbelievably easy and fast for brewing and cleaning. The welds are all top notch quality and the design is fantastic. However, because I don't have a dedicated brewing space I have elected to have my Tank on the Spike caster wheel kit and with the pick-up tubes, valves, and a tee (to allow for kettle recirculation reducing the chance of dry firing the element) attached to the front of the Tank when empty, it is very front heavy and likes to want to tip over. I would LOVE if Spike developed and extended brace design to fix the instability for those of use that would like our Tank on casters to be able to easily move it around while empty or full. Thank you so much for a great product!

Love the product

Love my tank and false bottom. But been waiting a couple months for the 30 gal tank to be in stock. So I haven't got to use this one yet. Can't wait to try it out though.

Great Addition to the Kit

I have both the BK and the MT with the door. Both have been great so far aside from a few nitpicky things concerning port locations. Build quality is great as expected and the bottom drain is a game changer. About the only things I'd change would be the port locations on the BK particularly on the front of the kettle. I'd have preferred to have the racking and whirlpool ports on top instead of one on the side. In my setup this makes it difficult because the port is right next to my MT and making it a tight squeeze working with the two. It's passible though. The other thing I think would be a good minor change would be to have a pull pin for the door instead of three screws so that you can easily remove the door to clean by hand when emptying grain without any tools.

Game Changer

Not having to wrestle a 20 gallon kettle to the sink is a game changer for my brew day. The kettle can now stay in place and get cleaned in place. The only downside I can think of is that there is about 1/2 gallon more wort lost than the kettle this replaced. I’m very happy and highly recommend this kettle! SSBrewtech kettle.

Easy to Clean

With a domed bottom design and 1.5" tri-clamp bottom drain port, cleaning has now become the quickest and easiest part of Brew Day...as it should be! Simply rinse out all your solid material, add a CIP (Clean in Place) ball and after 5 minutes of power washing the inside of your Tank, you'll have a squeaky-clean kettle. 

Splayed Legs

Why get a kettle with legs? The splayed legs on the Tank gives an extra wide stance for stability, as well as threaded legs to add the included adjustable leveling feet or even our caster kit. 

Pro Quality

Want to brew like the pros? Now you can! With professionally inspired features like the bottom drain, mash door and grain chute. This is the last kettle you'll ever need to purchase!

Best Boil Kettle

The Tank makes for the easiest whirlpool and clean up imaginable. The boil kettle (BK) has ports specially for whirlpooling, racking and dumping. The whirlpool port is the highest port and is used to recirculate wort to create a whirlpool inside the kettle so trub collects at the bottom. Then you'll use the lower port on the kettle wall to rack (drain) clean wort into a fermenter. Lastly, you'll drain all remaining liquids and solid out the large 1.5" tri-clamp port on the bottom of the kettle.

Customizable

Boil Kettle, Mash Tun, Hot Liquor Tank and even Solo Kettles. We've got them all in the Spike Tank line. We even offer mash tuns without the grain door if you're looking to step up your kettle game but on a budget. It's a whole new way to DIY. 

03 / 06

Thickest on the Market

Spike kettles are 20% thicker than any other kettle on the market. Why? Because it's called the Tank and it's built like one!

Welded Fittings & Handles

Our fittings are the strongest and most sanitary connection available. Our in-house welding team makes sure of that. Handles are welded on the front (as opposed to the side) so they take up less horizontal space when used with a three-kettle system like our Trio. Also, the back handle is in the perfect spot to hang your lid on. 

05 / 06

Polished Stainless

While polished stainless looks better, it also serves an important fuction. It's easier to clean! If you looked at a brushed stainless kettle under a microscope, you'd see that it's quite rough. Polished stainless cleans up quicker with less scrubbing and chemicals. 

06 / 06

Partially Rolled Lip

A partially rolled lip, like our design, is far more sanitary than a fully rolled lip. A partially rolled lip can't trap liquid and leftover brewing remnants, but a rolled lip design traps liquid and makes it impossible to clean out.
