Default Jacket Conical Pictures!

Well, after years of dreaming and a few months of waiting, it is done. My jacketed, stainless, conical fermenter is home!

Here is the completed piece:



An image of the jacketing weld at the bottom:



Placement of the inlet and outlet on the jacket:



The Metalmen:



I am writing a piece for Zymurgy’s Fall gadget issue, so if you have questions or ideas please let me know!

Can you briefly explain the jacketing and what it does for you? I assume some sort of temp control?

Did you pay the guy on the right in sandwiches(I hope)?

allows glycol to be pumped right next to the wort to keep temps right where you want it


Did these cost just an arm? Or did they charge the leg too? And what are your plans for your old ones?

It looks great as always, Brewpastor. I look forward to hearing the results.

Yes the jacket is for glycol and temperature control. I now need to work on getting it hooked up to my glycol chiller and so forth.

These guys literally worked for beer, no sandwiches involved! I have know the guy on the left for years and he just did it for me. I will be dropping 6 packs off for years, but thats fine with me.

As for the old ones - that is them! I originally bought them sized and prepared to do this. But then I thought better of the idea and made two units - which I was never really happy with, so I went back to plan A and had them joined.

Now I just need to clean it up and insulate the exterior. I think I will use some closed cell foam.

Maybe it's just the pic, but is that what appears to be a run-of-the-mill $1.19 3-pc plastic airlock on there? (and full of gunk, at that?)

Like a wire-hanger antenna on a Maserati.

(going back to drool over the beer porn now)

It is and the gunk is iodine stain.

I have a different set up involving a blow-off tube and a thermo-well but It is in the garage.

Here is the original drawing that gives a better sense of what I had done:
