To the original post - pumps are rated for flow and head(height of pumping, friction losses
basically). At zero head, a pump may do 3 GPM; at 10 ft of head, it may do 0 GPM. So if you are
going real h...

I have seen a lot about the Alberin SYL 2352 but it is a lot more expensive than a lot of other

I brewed my first IPA using the water chemistry primer (pure RO water). I added the suggested
amount of CaCl and gypsum. But my mash PH was a little low. I'm thinking of just adding the
CaCl to the ma...
