Stainless steel quality at an affordable price


Everyone wants stainless steel brewing tools, but we're often held back by the price. That's not the case with the new Steelhead Pump.


It's built strong for homebrewers that are tired of moving large kettles full of near-boiling wort to be chilled or transferred. The Steelhead Pump is ideal for use with counter-flow and plate chillers. It also makes a great upgrade to your all-grain brewing system.


Don't break your back or the bank, let the Steelhead do the hard work on brew day.

Product Details

Our Steelhead Pump is a heavy-duty pump made of FDA-approved materials to handle liquid up to 250°F. Powered by a 1/20 horsepower motor to produce top-of-the-line flow and pressure, this pump has a durable stainless steel head that resists breaking and cross-threading. Silicon o-ring and housing design prevents leaking. Large 2 7/8" impeller design, full 1/2" NPT inlet to prevent cavitation. Pre-wired with a four foot cord and a three prong 115V plug. Don't break your back or the bank, let the Steelhead do the hard work on brew day.

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

Like other pumps of this style, the Steelhead 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.

Adding a 1/2" ball-valve 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.

Features:

  • Stainless steel head
  • Handles liquid up to 250°F
  • 1/20 Horsepower motor 
  • 2 7/8" impeller

After how many hours use will it require oil?
Brad J on Jun 16, 2015
Best Answer: It should only need a couple drops once per year. I would say roughly 20 hours of use easily before it needs oiling, but just listen to the whirring, it will sounds strained if it requires oil.

The owners manual saids to oil once a year but not where to put the oil so what gets oil ?
What is the best way to prime this pump?
Ray K on Jun 29, 2015
Best Answer: Keep the pump below the outlet of the vessel. The water will enter the pump head. If this does not prime the pump, consider positioning the pump facing the other way. If this is still resulting in an air bubble that is interfering with fully priming, lower the hose below the pump so the air bubble can escape. Your pump is now primed. There is a hole on the end, with an arrow pointing at it that says oil here.

Is the impeller unit sold separately?

Will I need anything else with it?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: You will want quick-disconnect hose connections on either side. If you want to control liquid flow (recommended), a ball valve on the outlet port is necessary.

Will this transfer wine or beer to and from secondary?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: Unfortunately, impeller pumps such as this one are not well suited for transferring wine or beer post-fermentation as it can cause excess agitation and oxidation.

Is this item necessary?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2014
Best Answer: The Steelhead allows you to transfer hot and cold liquids during the brewing process and eliminates the lifting and dumping of large kettles and coolers filled with hot liquid. While the pump is not a necessity, it can be a time-and-back saver when you move to large-batch brewing, especially when brewing all-grain.
