  • 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.

  • About to build my keggle
    As long as you figure out how to ground the keg and protect the wiring, you'll be OK.

  • Counterflow Chiller question
    I don't think you're really using 1/2" ID copper tubing because that would be nearly 5/8" OD. I
    think you mean 1/2" OD copper. If it were me, I would use a 3/4 x 1/2" hex reducing bushing in

    I recommend a 1.5" Triclover ferrule for the heating element over a 1" NPT bung.

    The switch will need to be changed out to a 2 pole capable of 30 amps.

  • Yet another first BIAB thread
    Oh totally. I often do a dunk sparge and then leave it to drain. This gets me 75% efficiency
    and a clean product. I do find rinse sparging more effective though and gets me up to 80% or
    more, but I pr...

    Hooking my chugger pump up to my tap lines to push BLC through. Then I also realized that I
    also have a female camlock on my slop sink faucet so I can blast clean my portable picnic lines

  • Camlock to Ball Lock Post
    I was curious if anyone had a good use for such and fitting so I made 100 of them. It's a part

  • Inexpensive false bottom?
    I forgot that people still use keggles for BIAB so I haven't done any testing in that
    application. The obvious size to me is the 14.75" one but doesn't fold so it may be hard to get
    in through the top...

  • Motorized grain mill *Help*
    The only downside to slow milling is if you have a sack of malt to get through quickly. As you
    can imagine, running a homebrew shop, the mill gets backed up on Saturday mornings.

    Roughly 13 seconds per pound so less than 5 minutes.

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.
