Custom HERMS Coil



Coiling the HERMS coil has proven to be one of the most difficult aspects of building our brewery for many users (see some of the failed attempts).

We are now proud to offer custom stainless steel HERMS coils that have been professionally manufactured to our specifications by a US-based stainless tubing company, ready for use in our electric brewery setup.

The longer 50 foot length ensures that heat transfer is maximized and the large 1/2 inch tubing minimizes flow restriction.

For more information visit our order page. GO

Update November 10th, 2011

We are currently low in stock of these coils. We appreciate everyone who has ordered so far!

Another batch is on order and is expected in the next few weeks. We will still be accepting orders, and will ship the coils as soon as we receive them.

Thanks, and do not hesitate to post any questions here, or email us.

Mike

If only you would make these with a smaller diameter, so the would also be compatible with kegs converted to brew kettles

I know we may have covered this earlier, but what size would be needed to fit into a keg? I do not have a converted kettle to measure. I would a need a bunch of measurements, but mainly the minimum ID of the keg, overall height, and average opening size.

The reason why its not easy to custom make these coils as there are hundreds of dollars in tooling costs to make even a slight modification, or provide a new product entirely. If you sell in larger quantities, yes, this cost is negligible. But I need to see a lot of interest (i.e. people willing to put money down) to make a larger quantity order in that size. That being said, I do not doubt that there would be interest, we just have not been asked many times.

You get me some measurements, and I'd be happy to get a quote for you.

Mike

For all those who have been waiting patiently for their backordered HERMS coils, I'm happy to say that I received the next shipment today. Those with outstanding orders should be receiving tracking info over the next few days as they start to go out.

Thanks for being so patient!

Mike

The smaller HERMS coils customized for keggles and 10-15 gallon kettles are now available and shipping. Only 30 available. First come first served!

Should I be concerned with the ink text on the coil, and if so, what should I use to remove it?

Best Regards

Good question. I remember years ago when I first built my setup my coil had writing on the outside too. I believe I used a slightly rough scouring pad and some oxyclean to remove it.

My Herms coil has writing on it. I've probably heated 20 batches of water and it's still on there. Even Star San isn't removing it. I don't think it will hurt anything.

How much of the ends has anyone had to cut off the ends to get Spikes coil to fit in the 20 gallon Blichmann? It looks like about an inch would do, but I want to make sure.

There's no one right answer as different compression fittings may add different lengths. Loosely fit the side of the compression fitting that goes inside the coil on one of the coil ends and position it to see where the coil would end up in your kettle. Then cut off enough to make it fit more or less in the center of the kettle.

So I thought I would order one of these bad boys. It appears, however, that the shipping costs are getting a little obscene. At $1,000 for shipping to Canada, it would likely be cheaper for me to book a return flight to where ever you keep inventory and pick it up.



Is this a software glitch and can we work out some more reasonable shipping charges.

Sorry for confusion. We artificially set the shipping cost high for orders to outside the USA to avoid direct international orders for some of our items items. (This is why it states US SALES ONLY. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR ORDERS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES. right above the add to cart button). Unfortunately there's no easy way to do this automatically for only some items but not others.

Email us at SpikeInnovations@TheElectricBrewery.com with your complete shipping address, phone number, and which size HERMS coil you're interested in (along with anything else you're interested in) and we can send you a custom quote as the shipping calculator comes up too high.

Cheers,

Kal
