The SideKick was designed to serve as a 4th burner and kettle for the Alpha Ruby system. If you have a source for sparge water such as a commercial on-demand water heater, the SideKick can now double the capacity of your Alpha Ruby with 2 mash tuns and 2 boil kettles. Or just keep things simple with a single kettle extract boiler. If you order your Alpha Ruby with Digital control, the supplemental ignition control package (available option) will allow you to control this burner from your main Alpha Ruby controller as well.

"Dear Ruby Street, When our seven barrel system didn’t arrive on time, and wouldn’t for another two months your company saved our bacon.  We purchased the Alpha Ruby from you and some plastic fermenters online. The Alpha showed up in four days and we started brewing our butts off. Thanks for the outstanding product.
