Testimonials

  • "I chose to go with The Electric Brewery first because I needed to brew all grain indoors year round. Only electric heating elements are building code compliant where I live. The Electric Brewery setup is incredible. It is elegant, brewhouse efficient, affordable, flexible in both implementation and function, and has incredible WOW factor. One can choose to DIY entirely or to have some components pre-built. The instructions and links to supplies, components and tools are simply brilliant. My non-brewing DIY friends are amazed at Kal's website. The ability to control temperature is a major advantage of this setup. It allows both beginning brewers and experienced brewers the opportunity to brew high quality beer and reproduce it again and again."

  • "At the Brooklyn Brewery, we chose the Electric Brewery’s Control Panel for our pilot system as it allows us to have tight and repeatable controls throughout the brewing process, just like we do on our 50bbl production system. This means new recipes that we develop on a small scale are more reliable when it comes to full-scale production. Consistency is very important to us as professional Brewers, and the Electric Brewery’s Control Panel ensures we have that at even the earliest stages of research and development."

  • "As many of you brewers may have started with extract brewing, so did I. Local fresh ingredients were just too hard to come by. My progression went from stovetop in the kitchen to propane burners in the garage. Then I came across Kal’s website! I drooled, researched, and prepped for the inevitable. The day finally came when I bit the bullet and bought into the electric craze!!! I’m a person who doesn’t mind reading directions and Kal has wrote probably the most descriptive tutorials I’ve came across. Not just the panel which to me is the heart and soul of the brew process but all aspects of the layout and equipment. Well done!"

  • "I spent several years reading home brewing forums, searching periodicals and websites, and comparing every component that could go into building my dream home brewery. My prerequisites included the need to brew indoors, an efficient and practical way to control the brewing process in an easily reproducible fashion, and a brewery that was as beautiful as it was functional. Early in my search I found theelectricbrewery.com and Kal's Control Panel. The panel very much appeals to my sense of aesthetic and function. It's elegant and refined and yet intuitive and simple. It's a professional grade control panel at the fraction of professional cost. No other company I looked into made anything that came close, in my opinion. If you want a safe and attractive way to make the best beer you can, then do your research and come back to The Electric Brewery. Totally worth it!"

  • "The Brew on Premises that we built using TheElectricBrewery control panel and design is a cornerstone to our business. We've brewed over 1000 batches on it and ALL the equipment and components are still working like the day we got them."

  • "I have been home brewing for over 25 years and decided it was time to build the ultimate brew system that would give me the precision and repeatability I was looking for from brew to brew. I spent a year researching brew configurations and based on my research and personal experience, Kal's system was my choice. The reviews from other brewers on the build and use of his system convinced me and my brew buddies that an all electric indoor system laid out in Kal's configuration was the way to go. I have now brewed ten beers on the system and have my eight taps brimming with top notch beers! I went so far as to replicate Kal's bar/brewery layout in a way that fit my space, and I liked the brew controller so much that I built my own fermentation and refrigeration controller using the same box, LED color scheme and other elements to make them look like a matched pair. When asked what brewing is like by buddies who don't brew, the usual answer is, 'A lot of cleaning that results in beer!'. I find that on this system cleanup is a breeze. I am a hop head and stout fan and love double IPAs and rich chocolatey imperial stouts. This system can handle both without any issue. Thank you Kal and Mike from me and my brew crew!"

  • "Once we decided to install a basement brewery in our home I put in countless hours of research on every single piece of necessary equipment. When it came to controlling our 20 gallon system there really is no other choice to make except The Electric Brewery, all other options for me were a compromise that I was unwilling to make. Besides the obvious “wow” factor, the panel is easy to operate and allows us to achieve repeatable results on our beers. I would highly recommend The Electric Brewery system to anyone who is looking to do the same. Once you’ve completed your own research you’ll discover, as I did, that there is really only one way to go. Thanks Kal!"

  • "Kal, this past weekend was the first brew on the new equipment. A Russian Imperial Stout. Hit all the numbers. Your control panel was an absolute pleasure to use. What a beautiful, intuitive, functional piece of brewing kit. Please thank Mike. The build quality exceeded my already lofty expectations."

  • "Kal, brewed my first batch today - just a simple Hefeweizen and everything turned out great. I went from extract stove kits to this electric system without any all grain experience. The thing that struck me the most was how hands off this system really is. I found myself staring at my brewery stand wondering why I hadn't gone this route sooner. Clean up was easy and everything functioned perfectly. I chose this approach because I wanted to do it right the first time and not have to upgrade years down the road. Hopefully one day this test system will turn into more than a hobby. I can't wait to brew next weekend and am already planning my next batch. Thanks a bunch for your hard work and great information."

  • “Kal you are the man! I can't get over the quality of my control box. The texture of the powder coating is awesome and the wiring is so clean and tight. You didn't skimp on the quality of any of the parts used in constructing this box. You even used high quality name brand XLR connectors for the temp probes. Mike you did an outstanding job assembling this work of art! It really is a pleasure to do business with a company as solid as you guys. It is hard to lay out this kind of cash for a product unseen on the internet, but if anyone out there is considering purchasing this control box and is on the fence, I can highly recommend it, and I'd say go for it. Put your doubt and skepticism aside this control box is the real deal and it delivers. The pictures do not do it justice and you really have to see it in person. I have already brewed several times with the new control box and my new rig, and it is an absolute pleasure to use. I get excited and look forward to brew days now, where the temps are easily held at whatever temp I need and the precise control is at your fingertips. Needless to say because of this my beers have already advanced to the next level. I'm not just saying this, as my friends and family are always asking me now what I am brewing next, or saying after tasting my latest brew, 'You know you could sell this beer!!'. I look forward to many many years of quality brewing and I will be passing your box and my rig on to my kids one day!”

  • "Professional brewers need to be able to reproduce the same recipe over and over. One of the worst things I can think of as a brewer would be for us to produce a great batch of beer and have people enjoy it, only to not be able to reproduce those results on the next batch! That's how you lose the faith of your customer base. What I found was that while our (previous) home brew system produced great beer, we had very little control and our batches could vary from batch to batch. In short, we needed to update our brew system to afford more control over each batch. And with that, we started building a pilot system (based on The Electric Brewery design). Our new electric set up is designed to mirror the process and functionality of professional breweries. We have hand built our ½ barrel (15 Gallon) electric pilot system to help us produce a consistent product and achieve our ultimate goal of recipe replication on a 15 barrel (465 Gallon) professional system."

  • "For me, homebrewing started as a dream to make quality beer. Being a technical guy, I wanted to apply those skills to the challenge of brewing better beer through precision. I chose TheElectricBrewery to be the heart of my brewery; I wanted accurate control over the mashing process and I knew TheElectricBrewery was capable of getting me there. Kal has designed a solid control panel that has been in use at my home for 4 years. This system has produced 26 Bronze, 35 Silver, and 42 Gold medals. In addition to these medals, it has brought home 3 first place best of shows, 3 second place best of shows, 2 third place best of shows, and 1 national NHC final round silver medal. I highly recommend TheElectricBrewery to anyone thinking about taking homebrew to the next level. I’m so glad I made the investment when I did."
