Posted in thread: Advice on my new setup on 03-15-2010 at 09:26 AM
I'm looking for advice on my set up. I'm considering placing my chiller in the HLT so I will
have the capability of a HERMS type system, as well as chilling the wort by running it though
an icebath in...
Posted in thread: Using 2 different size tubes with a march 809 on 03-14-2010 at 07:24 AM
Thanks for the advice. The pump is 1/25 HP and the existing coil is 20ft. I agree it's probably
cheaper to build it right the first time, and I wouldn't mind having a beefier chiller.
Besides, my wife...

Got a question for anyone experienced with a March 809 pump. I'm about to install one on my
brewing rig, and I see that it is made for 1/2 inch tubing. My cooling coil is a 1/4 inch
copper tube. I'm w...

I'm trying to redesign my AG brewing system. My current system is a three tier gravity feed

current system, e...

I agree, keep things as they are, and don't touch it or open it up until your ready to bottle.
It should be fine. I've left beers in the primary for close to three weeks before having a
chance to get ...

Thanks for the replys. I think I got it figured out. I had two kegs hooked up to the same
pressure line from the CO2 tank. I disassembled the disconnect and reset the little valve which
was looked a l...

I just got my kegging equipment (korny kegs), and started setting it up tonight. I hooked
everything up, and found that one in particular did not seem to seal well at the gas
disconnect. The Kegs hold...

Posted in thread: So, just how many and what brands use suitable bottles? on 09-06-2006 at 05:32 AM
I have the best luck with New Belgium and Samuel Adams bottles. Of course a lot of small
production breweries use very similar bottles, which work well too. For me, I'm limited by the
