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.

Features & Specs:

  • Compared to boiling without a lid, our SCL has a 50% reduced boil-off rate and results in a ~6% total boil-off.
  • Replaces the need to install a hood for indoor brewing
  • Prevents mold from forming on walls and ceiling
  • Third-party lab tested to show that DMS is completely undetectable (under 25 ppb) after only 30-45 minutes of boiling
  • Discharge water is very hot and can be used for cleaning
  • Compatible with Spike Kettles and the Spike Solo
  • 1.5" tri-clamp port for CIP ball
  • 4" tri-clamp port for hop additions
  • Water usage:
    • 15 gallons/hour for 10g, 15g & 20g lids
    • 25 gallons/hour for 30g &. 50g lids

Steam condenser lid on SSBrewtech EKettle

As always the Spike team delivered beyond expectations from order, to customer service, product and delivery. Writing this review not only for the great product but because I could find very little info on using this with SSBrewtech EKettle. I am glad to report that my first brew went fantastic with it, no steam escaped and lid never moved. I will admit its not a perfect fit, its snug and sits a little high but this did not impact the performance at all, still pulled a strong vacuum. Thanks to Spike once again for making each and every brew day a little better! Cheers

Steam condenser lid on Brewzilla 65L

Bought this for my Brewzilla 65L to brew in my basement without ventilation. It works great even better than expected. Great product that does everything as advertised or better. Cheers!

Very good, but does not fit perfectly into my spike 20gal kettle - the tapered edges cause it to pop back out if you try to push it in. I need to rest a 15lb dumbbell on the lid to keep it down during the boil.

Small adjustments to make this great product even better.

With some modifications this could be amazing. 1. I’d replace the 4” TC opening with a small man way. The TC can be difficult to open and close when the kettle is boiling. 2. I’d move the water sprayer to the bottom of the steam condenser stack. I added a Tee and do it that way. It reduces your chance for water back flow in the kettle. 3. Adding clips that would connect to the lip of the BK would be amazing. Two brew cycles ago, I had to clamp the lid to the BK to prevent overflow. 4. It might be worth adding a support bracket to account for the weight of the stack. I do wedge it against the BK handles but, when not in use it doesn’t balance or store very easily. Small adjustments to make this great product even better.

We are no longer ‘steamed’ at Flying Moose.

Worked as expected and our brewery was not inundated with a cloud of steam during the boil. We had to adjust our kettle power settings and the wort loss was significantly less than with an open kettle. The system does use a good amount of cold water, we are working with different setups for recycling the outflow water from the condenser. The condensate water does pickup aromas from the brew kettle so be advised.
