Built to transform steam into liquid during the boil, our steam condenser lid will enable you to brew inside without worrying about moisture collecting on your walls and ceiling, which can cause mold issues. These lids are not only designed to fit Spike kettles, but will also work with most other kettle brands on the market.

From a better boil-off rate to major cost savings and conveniences, you will find many benefits by adding this to your brew setup.

  • Third-party lab tested to show that DMS is completely undetectable (under 25 ppb) after only 30-45 minutes of boiling

  • Compatible with Spike Kettles and the Spike Solo
  • 1.5" tri-clamp port for CIP ball

Steam condenser lid

The steam condenser lid worked as advertised and has allowed me to brew in my garage on cold winter days without having to have the garage door open when used with my electric BIAB system. There was no noticeable steam released during my 60 minute boil. I do question the amount of water used to condense the steam and wonder if a smaller nozzle could accomplish the same task with less water being used. Overall I’m very happy with my purchase.

Works well uses lots of H20

Definitely gets the job done. I live in a high desert and this things uses a ton of water. I wish I could find another option for a sprayer that didn't use so much water. I would say that is my only complaint. It's built very stout and looks really cool. I can maintain boil temps at 35% power which is also nice.

Excellent component

The steam condenser lid is working very well for me and keeps my walls and ceilings nice and dry. Minimizes boil off from my 20 gallon solo which is great but also means less water is needed in the kettle at the start. Due to my own error the lower water level helped contribute to a fried heater during mashing. Lesson learned the hard way that the water level above the grain bed will be visibly lower during mashing to ensure heater remains submerged than if the hat is not going to be used during the boil. Water usage isn't too bad and if recovered is great for cleaning. I might suggest some clips around the perimeter in a future update to keep the lid clamped down tight to the kettle so spurts of water cant escape and drip down. Very happy with purchase and will definitely benefit when the winter comes and I cant keep the garage doors open.

Love it

Love it. Reduced my boil losses to almost nothing on my 110v system (from another manufacturer, and it fits perfectly)
