Brewing with electric is more popular than in the past. Electric boilers for brewing systems are compact and easily installed. There are no tanks or fuel lines to install. No vent holes are needed in the roof or walls. In fact with a Reimers electric boiler the blowdown water can be stored in a closed tank and released to the sewer. The closed tank is just what it says, no vent pipes or need to cut walls or roof openings. Blowdowns are suggested to release settled minerals and solids from the boiler vessel. When this is done routinely the vessel stays cleaner and last longer.
Electric powered brewing systems are convenient for a few reasons. They don't require the use of diesel or propane. Electric is less expensive in many areas and is always a good environmental choice. There is no chance of running out of fuel before the end of the brew day. Electric boilers in brewing systems operate with a built in temperature sensor, and are extremely capable of keeping your temperature right where you want it. You can heat strike water, mashing, sparging, or boiling, and the electric elements turn off and on when needed. Electric boiler systems are very compact! Reimers has many voltage and KW options to size your project.
