    ABOUT ME

  • The WHALES brewing club
  • Started brewing on extract kits in August 2006 after a horribly failed Mr Beer batch. Converted to all grain after 5 batches and haven't looked back. I'm currently working out the kinks in a custom single tier, 3 sanke, natural gas fired system. I'm a batch sparging advocate and like to teach new all grain brewers that you can achieve high 80% efficiencies. I'm focused on brewing highly drinkable beers right now and plan to start expanding BJCP knowledge to become a better brewer.

  • No Sparge BIAB, Ideal MT Size for 10Gal
    A 10 gallon should get you at least a 9% ABV beer with no sparging. Going any higher can be
    done by sparging just a little.

  • No Sparge BIAB, Ideal MT Size for 10Gal
    The reason it doesn't scale linearly is that boil off ratio is generally fixed for a given pot
    whether you start boiling 7 gallons or 12. For a 5 gallon batch I start with 8 gallons of water
    and for a...

  • Keggle MLT false bottom
    If you get the grain compacted and continue to try pumping out of it, it can flex so much that
    the dome turns completely inside out. In your case, that nipple would just hit the bottom of
    the keg.

  • Power cord connector for cable at the brew kettle
    Are you talking about the neutrik Powercon32? I don't think they're waterproof but you really
    don't need waterproof.

  • Steelhead 2.0 pump mounting
    You know, these pumps are so light that there is very little reason not to just drain mount
    them with your QD of choice. That's how I've been using it and it's great.

  • Keggle MLT false bottom
    The one flaw is that when you start pulling some vacuum on the drain and it pulls the FB
    downward, it may let that QD nipple hit the bottom of the keg and make a show stopping seal.
    You may want to cu...

  • No Sparge BIAB, Ideal MT Size for 10Gal
    The sweet spot for no sparge 10 gallon batches is 20 gallon. You'll start with about 14 gallons
    of water and drop in about 25-35 pounds of grain. Grain displaces about .075 gal/lb so that's
    2-3 gallon...

  • Breaker keeps breaking
    Also measure the resistance between the metal tubing of the element to each of the terminals.
    It should read infinite.

  • How do I remove the tacked welded handle from this brewpot ?
    I wouldn't do that. If you don't want the handles, carefully cut through right above where the
    tubing was crushed flat. Those spot welds are way stronger than you think and you will pull the
    pot apart...

  • Comparing the new Topsflo TD5 to the Chugger Pump
    Very cool review and comparision. This version of the TD5 pump has been out a while though, at
    least 2 years... @AnOldUR uses one and has been happy with it from what hes stated. With this
    sealed st...

Fermentation may have been a greater discovery than fire.

Thanks for all the useful information you have posted on various sites.



I am currently building a single tier stand of my own and was hoping that you would share the dimensions of yours, that is if you are happy with them.



If not would you please tell me the dims of the stand you would hope for.



Thanks.
