well if you're saving for one, just save a little longer.

Well, I am sorry to hear that you don't think you'll be buying another one at the new price point...please note, though, that we are offering a 10% off deal through the BYO ad. Just saying...

Thanks for the comments and support!

Anyone have suggestions for the bare minimum of trial clover fittings I should order?

I plan on getting more later but want to get fermenting as soon as I get my brewhemoth.

a 1.5 dia valve for the bottom dump. and a 1.00 flat cap to cover the racking port, two gaskets and two clamps and an airlock and bung for the top 1.00 port.

That is the bare minimum that can be used. Well you could cap the 1.5 port and use a racking cane but then why have one.

Now if you want to use the racking port you will need to replace that flat cap with a 1.00 valve and add a 1.00TC to like 3/8 hose barb fitting, one more clamp and one more gasket.

I don't know, I don't use them. What ever would fit a .87 dia hole.

i posed this question to Josh but wanted to ask for the masses also .

Does anyone bulk carbonate in the Brehemoth (or other) and if so, how does the process of transferring already carbonated beer to individual kegs work (or not work...). Doesn't it get all foamy?

Is the solution simply to carbonate individually. Obviously bulk carbonating is more convenient in theory. But if it causes many problems during the transfer of the beer then maybe not so much.

Thanks...

On the small scale you're doing it's not worth the pain (IMHO). But it works you just have to transfer under pressure. It does not take much. If the BH is sitting at 15psi then you set the keg at 14psi it will flow.

I did my first yeast dump last night. 4 days after pitch and I dumped about 3/4 of a gallon of yeast and trub before beer came out. (filled a half gallon jar 1.5 times) Man that was a lot of yeast.
