Where's my stuff?

Automated emails are sent at various stages as your order is processed from order acceptance to order delivery. If you do not see an email after placing your order (usually within minutes), please check your junk mail folder.

Most orders ship within 1-3 business days. Our assembled products and kits are custom hand-made by us and some items have longer lead times: Up to 1 week for control panel kits and pre-assembled temperature probes/cables, 1-2 weeks for pre-assembled heating element assemblies, and 3-4 weeks for pre-assembled control panels.

When you place your order various shipping options with different transit times are available. Please do keep in mind that the shipping transit time you choose does not guarantee an arrival time from the date of order, as there will also be a lead time for your product as mentioned above. Arrival time is lead time plus transit time. That said, when our customers choose expedited shipping we do try and get them out as soon as possible, often the same day for parts or similar short lead time products.

Where's my ebook?

Did you purchase our Complete Guide to Building Your Brewery and did not receive download instructions? It can sometimes take up to 24 hours for payment to clear before your download link is sent. Please check your junk mail folder as well. The instructions were automatically sent to the email address you used when ordering.

If you have not received instructions within 24 hours please contact us at and we'd be happy to resend you a copy.



We support our products and customers for life. Doesn't matter if you purchased from us last week, last year, or when we first started in 2009. Doesn't matter if you purchased new or even used. We will not stop responding after your warranty runs out (a disturbing trend we're seeing with some sellers of electric brewing equipment). Most questions are answered the same day, 365 days a year. If you do not see a response within 24 hours, please check your junk mail folder.

Please be aware we do not build products for other sellers, nor do we assist in the design, development, or support of products for other sellers. We can only assist with supporting our own products as featured in our online shop.

Please contact us at with any support questions.
