MOTHER @#$@ER!!!!

I order my Morebeer conical based on the whole "the Brewhemoth won't fit" scenario, and then I see this short one!!!! Gaaaah!

Well, looks like I'll be having two conicals in my future!

What are you using to pump and cool through the immersion chiller? Just ice water? and a small submersible pump?

There's mention of a jacketed version which I find VERY exciting. Is that going to be sold as a kit? Or would I have to add my own glycol chiller?

Ah, well. I was hoping to get a 10" triclamp welded on one of these puppies. That, imo, would be the perfect fermentor! As I told Josh, I'd like to be able to stick my big old head in there to make sure it is clean. Besides, it would look awesome.

I guess there was one good side to asking about it. When I called to follow-up on an email about the possibilities, I got to hear those immortal words "Oh, you must be Mr. Ten Inch."

So I take it a 4" Tri-clover is as large as we can get? And then we'd also get a 1" welded over the airlock hole? I am definitely interested in an externally coiled/jacketed unit. Let us know when you are ready to take orders on them.

Did you run any performance tests?
The coil looks very small to remove enough heat during active fermentation.

ALWAYS question...that's all I'll say!

We can do a LOT of customization...just so you know.

Currently, just running tests with a small submersible pump in water. Glycol is an option, I am sure, but we are looking at many options for chilling...I can't get into too many details yet. Trade secret possibilities!!

Yeah, that's me...open mouth, insert foot. I knew that sounded wrong as soon as I said it, Clay!

Currently, 4" tri-clover on top w/ 1" airlock is as big as we are "comfortable" going...again, playing with lots of stuff...

So far, we did an initial test of the Brewhemoth full with 9 gallons of 97* water and chilled it to 81* in less than two hours with 65* water. The "control" batch of 3 gallons (in an open bucket) of 97* water cooled to 89* in ambient air (65* room).

The next test is actually going to be making a lager in the thing! Dale is brewing that right after the new year, so we shall see...also, going to see if we can get the immersion unit to pull it to LAGERING temps!!!

Oh the fun!!!

Fermenter coil plumbed to another coil inside a container filled with water set in a dorm or small refrigerator. Trouble free no ice changes as well a constant cold temp output for fermenter stability. JMO's
