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.

  • 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

condenser lid review

I've used this item three times and it has performed well. Still adjusting to proper power levels to prevent boil overs. Hopping with hop spider is a work in progress. I would really like if Spike could come up with a perimeter gasket for CIP. Ton's of water comes out from under the lid while CIP'ing. Overall - great product.

Necessary Eye Candy

The steam condenser lid is a beautiful piece of equipment that is necessary for any use, regardless of indoor or outdoor brewing. Intuitive system, easy to use, and the thing just makes your brewery look cooler. Not to mention the most important part: the increase in efficiency, decrease in boil off, and decrease in time spent getting up to boil. Absolutely essential in my eyes. My only suggestion to Spike would be the choice to bundle it with a system like mine, the 20g Solo+. My suggestion to anyone purchasing the lid is to go ahead and grab the Spike CIP ball.

Fits my Brewzilla 65L

Great product, my biggest problem with it is the Access Port (for adding stuff into the pot). If there was a Tri Clamp capable door that had a hinge/sealed that you could flip open and put back in that'd make this product 100x better. You have to pull the clamp off, hope you dont drop the gasket in, drop in your hop additions, then fiddle with the lid and gasket to get it back in place and loosely thread the clamp on. That leads to something that should take a few seconds to do, to taking longer.

Great product

I live in northern Wisconsin and to brew in winter I did it in my heated garage but would put a fan blowing out in the window. Still had a lot of moisture and smell in garage for about a week which made me worry about mold. Using the condensing lid had little moisture and almost no smell just from the boil before the hot break.

Need more instructions

I know nothing about how to use the lid. I purchased it as a gift to my brother-in-law who needs instructions for its use. Where can he get info?
