You asked and they delivered! Spike Brewing's Professional Nano-Brewing Systems are now available across Canada!
Welcome to the 1bbl Spike Nano System, a professional-grade product that can be used at home, as a pilot system or for full-scale nano brewery production. Its design features bottom-draining kettles with a full-length drip tray for quick cleanup. The heart of the system is a commercial grade UL approved panel – available in single- and double-batch configurations – that provides up to 27,000w of heating power. The Nano’s process is intuitive, too; the absence of hard piping and a complex valve tree means the system is both easier to clean and easier to operate. Plus, 90% of the Nano’s parts are sourced and manufactured in the U.S. Spike Brewing will even personalize the system with your logo!

When purchasing a commercial-grade beer brewing system, you’re going to have some anxiety: Am I buying the correct system for my needs? Is there anything I need to know before the system arrives? Is there someone to talk to if I have questions? This is perfectly normal, and we’re here to help make the process as smooth as possible. Investing in your Nano includes access to Spike's full-service support team wholly immersed in the system’s features and functions. If you’d like to ask a question, please contact us here.
Our steam condenser was built to transform steam into liquid, leaving your brewing space mold-free – no need to spend thousands more on a vent hood and installation. The cost savings continue when boiling. Once at a boil, our heating elements can be turned down to roughly 25% of total capable output and continue to hold a rolling boil. Furthermore, during testing, our team found that with our steam condenser, there was only a 5% boil-off compared to over 11% with a standard open-style boil kettle. Due to the lower boil-off rate, the additional 2+ gallons of product you get from every brew day will add up to thousands in additional revenue over the course of a year.
When it comes to the power source of your system, you need to trust that your engine will keep running safely and smoothly each and every brew day. Spike teamed up with Electric Brewing Supply, located in Michigan, to design a fully, UL-approved electrical panel to power your Nano System. With both single and double batch options available, you can be sure to count on your electrical power source pumping out batch after batch! Note - this panel is not CSA approved, but is UL-approved.
Your Custom Logo
Your dream, your business. Make sure your Nano System promotes your brewery proudly. This system has a stainless steel plate welded to the tank, where you can feature your brand, front and centre. You provide the logo and Spike Brewing will laser etch it prominently and permanently. If you prefer a full-colour logo, they’ll produce a heat-resistant vinyl label, instead. Both options are offered for no additional charge.
When it comes to 1bbl brewing systems, you won't find a more seamless and pain-free cleaning experience. Our domed, bottom-draining kettles and our handmade, cart-length drip tray that sits beneath them to catch boil-overs, drips or splashes, make clean-up a breeze. This sloped drip tray leads to a single exit point, so all liquid and waste finds a smooth route to a collection bucket or drain, protecting your pumps, chiller and floor from a potential mess. Also, our man way door and grain chute make post-mash cleanup a breeze.
27,000 Watts of Power
The Nano system is a time saver, with over 27,000 watts of available power across the entire system. You'll find 12,000 watts in both the BK and HLT, and with the double-batch upgrade, you can run both the BK and HLT simultaneously. In addition, our MCS (Mash Control System) helps you hold mash temperatures with ease and without fear of scorching your grain. After a variety of heating design considerations – including a calandria, which was ultimately vetoed, because it’s difficult to keep clean and doesn’t allow for half batching – we chose to move forward with industry-standard, ultra low-watt-density 316SS heating elements placed low in the kettles. This allows the brewer to brew as low as 1/2bbl (15gal) batches and makes post brew-day cleaning much easier than other proprietary heating solutions on the market.
