Brewing Pumps & Accessories

Brew pumps are an important add-on to your brewing system. Using one when transferring your wort and recirculating the mash is more convenient and faster. But the benefits of using a brew pump do not stop there. When your beer has finished fermenting, the pump can be used to move the finished product from the fermenter to the keg for the carbonation process.

There are 3 main types of brewing pumps available for homebrewers, they are a 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 centrifugal action so that the hose can take the liquid and transferred it to another container.

Aside from choosing the type of pump, homebrewers should also make sure that the pump is food grade. Never use a pump that is not designed for brewing beer because it might not be able to handle high temperatures. Another thing to consider is the flow rate. A good brewing pump should have a flow rate of at the most five gallons per minute. If the flow rate is very fast, it may affect the clarity of the beer.
