Product Details

A new kind of brew pump, Steelhead 2.0™ has been completely redesigned for brewing. Featuring a no-maintenance brushless motor, Steelhead 2.0™ runs on 24V DC, eliminating the risk of AC current near your brew house. Not only is Steelhead 2.0™ a safer pump, the motor is virtually silent. Small and lightweight, the pump body takes up less space and can be disconnected from the power supply at any time. The all stainless steel pump head features standard ½ NPT ports and a magnetic impeller allowing the use of a valve for flow control.

Like other brew pumps, the Steelhead 2.0™ 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. Don't break your back or the bank, let the Steelhead 2.0™ do the hard work on brew day. No more moving large kettles full of near-boiling wort to be chilled or transferred.

Features:

  • Stainless steel head
  • Maintenance Free Brushless Motor
  • 24V DC power supply (Included)
  • Quiet Operation
  • Handles Liquid Up to 250°F
  • 7 GPM (27 l/min) with a 5m maximum head
  • Weighs only 1.9 lbs.

Great pump but no mount
Fantastic pump, very compact and quiet. Move liquid quick and breaks down easy for cleaning. But I wish there was a mount, I had to fabricate my own.

Great pump
I've gone to a 10 gallon system and this pump sure made brew day easier! It runs so quietl you can forget it is running. I also like that it is a 24 volt pump. Great product.

Is there a mounting bracket on this pump?
S H on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not come with anything but the pump and the DC power supply. I will write a review on the website.
Is the housing waterproof? Or do I need to shield it from spraying liquids?
R S on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You will want to shield the pump from water, it is not water proof in all spots so best to avoid it being hit with or submerged in water.
Would I be able to wire these to a 24v battery setup? My thought was to hook 2 marine batteries together and wire switches to 2 of these pumps in my single tier structure.I don't want to have to run any extension cords to where I brew.
A W on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It may be possible to do this, but you would want to ensure that you are only running 24v DC @ 2.0 amps. Any modifications to the pump or power adapter will void the warranty.
I don't understand the value of this pump. A Chugger pump cost the same amount and is easier to mount. This pump should be at least a third less than a plugin model.
M I on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This does plug in, but it's using a 24VDC adapter on it for power. The idea is that it is safer for using it around wet places, greatly reducing the possibility of electrical shocks at 120 VAC, which can be dangerous. It's still a very powerful pump, and it's small size can be an advantage for locating it in a compact system, or moving it around the brew system. -Mike W, Northern Brewer
What are people doing for a mount/stand? I'm trying to find a solution that will really lock this thing down when in use (I have some attached hardware downstream that is not otherwise fixed). However, the mount would still need to either release the pump or at least allow easy access to the four screws on the backside.
Henrik on Aug 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Henrik,

Thanks for your question! We should be coming out with a mount shortly. In the meantime you could use some hanger strapping. It is the metal tape with holes in it.

Cheers!
Does the Steelhead 2.0 come with an AC adapter? If not, what size adapter (i.e., how much current) is required to run this pump?
A D on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Steelhead 2.0�� runs on the included 24V DC Power Supply. That eliminates the risk of AC power in the brew house. - Cheers, Todd J
I received my pump the bearing material is black and when I rub it with my finger it turns black? IS this carbon? What are the other materials made from . 316 SS? What is the yellow plastic made from?
M I on Jul 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The only materials inside the head are stainless steel, high temp food grade plastic, and a ferrite magnet. It is advisable to clean the pump with a good alkaline cleaner before use.
What is the GPH?
M A on Jun 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This pump moves approximately 400 GPH.
Does this model have a Polysulphone Impeller like the Chugger?
A shopper on Dec 3, 2016
I am going to use this pump on my 10 gallon EdelMetalL Bru Kettle and want to know what Chill Plate you would recommend??
