Stainless Steel Sparge Arm

Our Sparge Arm is made of 3/8" stainless steel tubing that is 10.75" long, and height adjustable. The holes are laser drilled and includes 6' of heavy wall tubing. There are no brass parts in this sparge arm. The tubing attached to the sparge arm is 5/16" inner diameter, and will fit a 3/8" barb after heating the end of the tubing with hot water. This sparge arm does not work with a 5 Gallon Rubbermaid Cooler.


Note: Sparge arms can be temperamental, and may not rotate due to insufficient water pressure or other factors. It will still provide a gentle sprinkle of sparge water over the grain bed without tunneling, and will not cause you problems.

Dimensions (LxWxH) 3.75" X 15.5" X 10.75"

Works great in my cooler Review by mgv410

Bought one of these initially and it works well. Have had good efficiencies (78-84%) and very satisfied. Don't think there has been any channeling as the efficiencies have been good.

Get more sugar = more ABV Review by Cam

Use this is rinse your grains, producing more sugars, in turn creating more alcohol.

OK as far as sparge arms go Review by Koosman

I've tried several sparge arms on a few different systems and they are all prone to stopping. Its hard to get a good fly sparge system for not a lot of money. I've had some success with this by using height between the HLT and MT to generate pressure. With enough height the system works well.

It can work if you stay on top of it Review by Andrew

Through trial and error I got it working to an acceptable degree. The HLT needs to be placed high enough above the mash tun that gravity pulls the water down hard enough to make the arm rotate. Even then, it can inexplicably get stuck and you have to start it up by hand.

Use gravity to your advantage Review by Sanjay

make sure the hot liquor tank is high enough above the mash tun that you get some pressure going. If its not high enough the rotation can stop. This also helps deal with the tubing sagging when hot water is running through it.

Bottom Line - it works

Works, but needs supervision Review by Andrew

It works but needs to be watched in case it gets stuck and stops rotating. Having the hot liquor tank high up will take advantage of gravity and cause the water pressure to be higher, maintaining the rotation. I replaced the tubing with higher temperature tubing.

way to go Review by Martin

If you feel the need to sparge and you have this type of setup than this arm is the way to go. Good deal.

Fiddly Review by Dave

Product Rating:

Its a good price and I can get it to work with some effort. Under high heat the tubing kind of gets soft and mushy and restricts water flow. I needed to support it in a few places. Its also important to have it high above the mash tun, so gravity helps overcome the restriction. Higher temp tubing would help.

As expected Review by Dewwby

Really it is a lower end version, but what do you expect for the price! Works well and gets you into full mash brewing! Cannot ask for more.

I got it to work Review by Drew

It took some experimenting but I finally got it to work. I needed to have the hot water cooler higher up. I've used it for fly sparging a half dozen beers and its worth the money.
