The Steelhead 2.0® Brewing Pump with Mounting Bracket
The Steelhead 2.0® is all about more power, even with its compact size. This pump stacks up to larger pumps on the market by delivering powerful recirculation for all-grain brewing, effortless liquid transfer and is ideal with counter-flow plate chillers. And let's not forget its powerful construction and included mounting bracket!
Make brew day easier with the Transfer Quick Pump Connector Kit. 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. Now including a Mounting bracket to mount your pump like a pro!
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.
The included mounting bracket allows you to cleanup your brew area and fix the pump where it best fits you. Featuring (2) ¼" holes spaced 4" apart. It'll be hard pressed to find a spot you can't mount this 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.

I bought this pump originally to transfer my hot water into my mash tun. Then I figured, why not use it to counterflow when I use my immersion chiller as well? Transferring the hot water was a no brainer and simple, right? The second use on brew day..... So I was brewing a beer that had hop additions at flameout. Threw the hops in my hop spider, then connected the pump to the ball valve on the kettle and the other end connected to my copper return pipe I created for counter flow and let it run for 15 minutes. Went from boiling down to 160 degrees in 15 minutes. Pulled the hop spider out, then dropped my immersion chiller in and with the counter flow pipe and the wort went from 160 to 73 in 15 minutes. So far so good on the pump. More to clean but I think the payoff is huge since I am not wasting so much water trying to cool the wort, and also reducing the brew day time. The pump with the hose kit is well worth the price and a must have item.
works ok the 2 times i have used it so far.
mounted it to a milk crate and plugged it into a power strip with a
switch so i can turn it on and off.
works as expected should have been a lot less expensive
If you are looking for a quality pump, look elsewhere, this one is just very low quality. I used it maybe 4-5 times and then it just started acting up and then stopped working altogether. At some point you have to stop carrying equipment that is of such low quality. Very disappointed.
Great pump for the money. Easily mounted on my brew table with included mounting hardware. Quiet and efficient.
