I've brewed as much as 18gal in my Brewhemoth (German pils). Lagers aren't known for giant
krausens though, that would be pushing it especially with a "heady" yeast like a Belgian or
wheat. 15gal work...

I use 15 psi for the entire fermentation. Higher than that can cause some issues with some
strains during early fermentation.Juan or anyone, is there any literature on this effect? I'm
just wondering ...

I see, putting the relief valve on the blowoff corny will work. I would put it on from the
start since it'll take quit a bit of gas to build up pressure in a more or less empty corny. I
like the moreb...

Where's the foam going to come from if this is on the gas connection of the corny fermentor?
I'd keep the wort down to 3.5-4gal to prevent blowoff through the unit, you don't want gunk
building up in ...

Just ran my first mash with this malt. I thought it did have a decent bready taste. Also I got
a lot less protein gunk in the mash than when I use Weyermann or Best, this could be mash pH
but I got a ...

I usually run it at 7 for a few days then ramp to 15.

No one uses a conical?I have two Brewhemoths now. When I harvest yeast I will sometimes bleed
the pressure down first. The spunding valves they sell with the unit have pressure relief
valves that make...

It takes longer with a smaller batch. I did an 11gal batch last time and it took a few days to
see pressure. Give it time, it will run up to 15 psi for you. That's where I'm at now and still

I have an MM2 and it will do this if I have the gap set too low. Your knurling may not be
catching the grain and pulling it in, opening up the gap slightly lowers the angle and improves
the ability of...

Yeah I would say the pressure will go through the roof in short order if not vented.
Fortunately for me I have a relief valve on the Brewhemoth. Is there none on your setup? Its a
good idea just in ca...
