    Check our website before you come out. We are going to start updating it once a week with
    accounts we are in. It's something I put together a few months ago and forgot about. I have two
    guys that we h...

    So I guess it's just flip the switches on to boil and off when done. Do you always run all 3 or
    do you ever use just 1 or 2?As soon as the wort transferring in is above each element, it gets
    flipped o...

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us. Hopefully you don't mind but I'll probably have
    lots of questions going forward.In regards to your electric heating elements, how did you wire
    them? In oth...

    CO2 to transfer between tanks. The only time I use a pump once beer is in the tank is if we
    need to rouse yeast, which is super rare. In that scenario we've only done it twice and I
    hooked the pump up...

    What does the VFD in the pump get you? Do you have a separate pump for transfer and cleaning?
    What is your transfer process?Appreciate all the info you've provided in the thread.The VFD
    adjusts the sp...

    If it's not too late, why not dump the bottom of the fermenter, re-pitch with fresh yeast and
    say you did it on purpose! It might turn tasty, just different than what you were planning
    on.The problem ...

    Do you guys have an emergency fund for such an event or is this an out of pocket type deal?Not
    necessarily an emergency fund, just take the hit and keep rollin. Material cost was around
    $1000, plus pu...

    Bummer. Hopefully it eon't be too much of a hit for you guys?Did you taste test or is it just
    not worth the time/risk to try to salvage?It's a substantial hit. Tasted it and it's not even
    close to wha...

    Time for some not so uplifting news. We had the circuits controlling the glycol system blow
    over the weekend for an unknown reason. Actively fermenting beer went up to 82*. Result? 1,120
    gallons of be...
