I am wanting to make a device that will take whole grains from the malted
grain to a finished wort with out human intervention once the product and
water has been loaded.
The problem that I am running into is finding small pumps that are rated for
the temperatures needed. The pumps I am finding pump too much liquid and
will cost more than the rest of it will cost.
If you know of a small low flow high temperature pump that does not cost a
arm and a leg, let me know.
A lot of homebrewers use magnetic coupled pumps like those produced by
the March company. The pumps are made out of various materials,
including some that can handle the high temps of handling boiling wort.
The magnetic coupling between the motor and the pumps impeller
eliminates the need for a impeller shaft and seal arrangement.
