Brewing Pumps & Accessories


A brew pump is a perfect addition to any brewing system, and using one when transferring your wort and recirculating the mash is more convenient and faster. But the benefits of using a brewing pump do not stop there. When your beer has finished fermenting, use the pump to move the finished product from the fermenter to the keg for the carbonation process.

The three main types of brewing pumps used by homebrewers are the peristaltic, diaphragm, and centrifugal pumps. Peristaltic pumps work by creating a squeezing action to allow the liquid to pass through the tube. Diaphragm pumps work by increasing and decreasing the pressure in the pump to allow water movement and prevent backflow problems. Lastly, the centrifugal pumps are the most common type of brewing pumps and work using outward action so that the hose can take the liquid and transferred it to another container. (more info below)

Aside from choosing the type of brew pump for their set-up, homebrewers should also make sure that the pump components are food grade. Ensure your pump is able to handle high temperatures and you need to consider the flow rate. The brewing pump you choose should have a maximum flow rate of five gallons per minute. If the flow rate is too fast, it may affect the clarity of the beer.
