Description

The MTSs is a Heating System Upgrade designed for use with Ss Brewtech’s Infusion Mash Tun.  During extended Mash periods or in relatively cold ambient temperatures, the mash will naturally drop in temperature.  This system will counteract those temperature drops, and hold a consistent saccharification temperature, helping insure you are making the beer and flavor profiles you planned to produce. The MTSs is a low wattage silicone heater pad, which is bonded to the underside of the 5 degree sloped bottom on your Mash Tun using a strong adhesive backing on the heater pad.  The heater is controlled with a 12 volt digital temp controller.  You simply set your target temperature and the heater will cycle on and off to maintain your set point.  This system is NOT designed for heating water to strike temp and/or step mashing, though it can help with fine tuning your strike water temp those last few degrees and/or maintaining your strike water temp while you are preparing your grist or balancing your water chemistry.

Missing Parts??
This product was shipped without the grommet and nylon tie. When I contacted Morebeer concerning this, they suggested that I must have missed the parts in the packaging. Not so. Morebeer was no help on this one. I finally contacted Ssbrewtech via email. They shipped the parts out immediately. As far as this product is concerned the final review is still under consideration. I’ve used it once and it didn’t perform as expected, however, there were no instructions with the product. I’ve downloaded this from Ssbrewtech web site and will try it again follow the instructions,

Complete Waste of Money
I purchased one of these a while back and have brewed dozens of batches with it in place. I read the manual, FAQ and any other documentation I could find on Ss Brewtech's site before buying it so I knew what I was presumably getting in to. The documentation states that it is merely intended to hold your mash temp within a degree or so, it cannot be used to raise the mash temp. No problem, I'm fine with that limitation. The problem is, it does not reliably hold your mash temp at all regardless of what steps you take to stabilize the mash temp first, and regardless of what ambient temperature is.

I've used my Ss Brewtech Infusion mash tun when it was 30 degrees outside (I brew in an attached garage) and when it was 100 degrees out. So I've thoroughly confirmed that having a higher ambient temperature doesn't make it more effective. After having poor luck getting it to hold temps in the normal 148-158 mash temp range I decided to use it for making kettle sours and have it keep my wort at 90 degrees for a couple of days. It wouldn't even reliably hold that low of a temperature.

I have ALOT of other Ss Brewtech gear. This one is a big fat disappointment and has significantly damaged my trust in their integrity. They're essentially just selling you a $100 LCD screen for your thermometer, nothing more.

Useless
I have used this 5 times now in conjunction with the brewtech mash tun. A couple times, my mash was 1-2 degrees below what I was shooting for so I turned it on. After 60 minute mash, no change, matter of fact one time it lost a degree. Many contacts made with brewtech and final answer "works as intended".. huh? Waste of money. A bit bummed because I own a lot of their other stuff and top notch.

It’s not a bad product. Controller needed to be reprogrammed because it was in cold mode. Other than that it works as advertised.

Great for Batch Sparging.
Only good for maintaining/holding a temp while batch sparging. Temp must be within 1-2 degrees . It took 30 -45 minutes to raise more than 2 degrees. By that time your mash is half over.
