Flat Rate Shipping only $7.99 only from Northern Brewer

A high-quality, heat-resistant pump for wort or hot liquor transfer. This model is pre-wired with a six foot cord and a three-prong 110 V plug.

Magnetic drive of the impeller allows you to restrict the flow out of the pump, without affecting the motor.

Like other pumps of this style, it is not self-priming. For best results, position the pump below the level of your kettle and allow the pump head to fill with liquid before turning on the pump.

Product Details

A high-quality, heat-resistant pump for wort or hot liquor transfer. This model is pre-wired with a six foot cord and a three-prong 110 V plug.

1/25 horsepower magnetic drive seal-less pump with a polysulfone head, rated for food grade use up to 250°F. It has a maximum flow rate of 6 gallons per minute, and a maximum head of 12.1 feet. The pump head has 1/2" MPT inlets and outlets. The motor housing is not drip-proof, so you should locate the pump in a dry location.

This pump is NOT self-priming, the pump head must be filled with liquid before it will pump properly. This means that you will have to position the pump below the level of the liquid for the input. Do not restrict flow into the pump, only on the output side.

We recommend some high-temperature 1/2" tubing in either Thermoplastic or Silicone for all connections to the pump and equipment.

Adding a to the output of the pump allows you to precisely control the flow of liquid from vessel to vessel or through a plate chiller. You can even stop the flow entirely using the valve, without turning off the pump and losing the prime!

A set of
Quick Disconnects on your equipment and tubing make the brew day even easier.

works great
Had it for about 6 months or more now. No problems what so ever. Just let gravity do it's thing and priming is not a problem.

Love this Pump!!
I bought this pump at NB with the Stainless fittings and ball valve and I couldn't be happier, I ran into issues the first time I brewed but quickly found out the right way to prime it properly!! I have brewed 8-9 brews with it now and now have it installed on by own brew stand and its one of the best things I have ever purchased for brewing. I have replaced all the vinyl hose with silicone and installed SS Cam lock quick disconnects and now I brew faster, cleaner, much safer (no lifting heavy hot liquid) and easier then ever. Easy to clean and sanitize by recirculating PBW, clean water and Star San for 10 minutes, so easy!! and you can put your other brewing equipment in the pot your recirculating in to save time cleaning or sanitizing as well. Would never brew without this pump ever again!!

Great Pump
I've had this pump for about 3 years now and still couldn't be happier with it. Yes, it is not self priming and with just a little looking on the forum you can get all of the plumbing advice you need to make it work flawlessly. It is excellant for moving around hot water or wort and running some hot water and pbw through after use will keep it clean.

I've used this pump for years, works great!
Like the title says, I've had mine for about 7 years now, and never had a problem with it. It moves a lot of liquid, and produces a good amount of pressure.To those who are having priming issues, I would check to see how easily liquid can flow out of the grain bed, and whether there are issues with air being trapped in your tubing / manifold / false bottom. Maybe try dumping water onto the (spent) grains after finishing a batch and just see how fast it will come out -- it should pour out like a spigot.If there is any air in the pump, it loses its ability to pull fluid into itself, but it can still push the fluid (and air) out just fine. I have mine positioned about 6 inches below the MLT outlet, and have a vent stack right there. This way, the wort is always trying to flow into the pump, and any air in the system is pushed out the vent tube, whether there is any flow or not.

Great product!
This is a must have if you want to start making large batches with little effort. Like the previous comment, it is not self priming so be warned. Place the pump a good 2 feet below the source, and all should be fine.

Best home brew device
This pump is great I think every home brewer should have one. I brew all grain style with a mash ton and akeggel and as long as you have the pump below the fluid your on the money.

excellent pump
used this pump for over a year now. with over 20, 5-15 gallon batches. cuts down chilling time. priming is not a big deal you just need to have common sense, water flows down hill:) wouldn't brew with out it.

Works well
Well worth the money. I have not had any issues as far as priming and I do not use any method to prime other than gravity feed. I am going to guess that the folks having issues are having suction side tubing issues. This would only be a problem at high temperature due to the the tubing collapsing on itself. At low temps the tubing is rigid enough to withstand the negative pressure but becomes soft at higher temperaturesI use the 1/2" opaque thermoplastic tubing from NB with aluminum quick connects from McMaster. No issues at all. My pump is positioned about 8" below my kettle when chilling and I have no problem pushing the hot wort through a Shirron plate chiller into the fermenter.

Works great
I have only used it 2x so far but I am happy with the purchase. I am using it with a top tier and have no issues having it pump from ground level to the top tier ~7ft high. Frankly since I always overkill everything, I'd prefer more power however the pump works as advertised and I am happy with it.I did a lot of reading prior to buying the pump and here are the key pieces of info that helped me when setting it up and using it. (Also, I highly recommend filling your kettles with regular water and testing everything out prior to brew day so that you know how things work)- Its not self priming, so as others have mentioned, just make sure that the pump is below where you have your liquid, make sure to open the out valve to ensure that the input is full of liquid prior to starting it up- Add a ball valve to the output side so that you can throttle the flow- Most people sterilize it by turning it on during the last 10-15mins of the boil and having it recirculate back into the boil kettle. - Keep your tubing lengths as short as needed if possible- To clean it, I first just take a hose and squirt water in the input side and have it squirt all the wort left in it out the output side. I then have a kettle with water and PBW and have it recirculate back into the kettle for 10minutes. If you have a therminator/chiller, connect that to the output side or the pump and have it recirculate back into the kettle and you can clean both at once.
