  • Posted in thread: Converting to Sanke S-type system on 09-28-2016 at 09:53 AM
    When purchasing new Sankey kegs is there anything that needs to be done to them before first
    use? Do they need a TSP cleaning or need to be passivated? Or can you just sanitize and begin

  • Posted in thread: Walk-in cooler build thread on 03-24-2015 at 08:02 PM
    Here is the framing completed along with wiring pulled. I decided to do a single cat 5e wire
    run for each sensor I anticipate needing. In one area of the cooler I will have a low volt
    plate with 3 RJ1...

  • Posted in thread: BCS Temp probe to Cat5e Help on 03-14-2015 at 12:24 PM
    Any ideas how long of a run you can make with the Cat5? I want to do something similar in my
    fermentation room and I'd want to use cat 5 wire and connectors between my fermenters and my

    I certainly oxygenate in my conicals. I cannot see any reason to STOP oxygenating once you make

    I'm usually bad about the "before pictures". Here is what it used to look like and the space
    cleaned and ready to begin the build.

    Background: I have an unconditioned space, completely sealed and underground. Temperatures hold
    pretty steady in the 60's except during the summer months when it can climb into the low 70's.
    It has wo...

    Thanks for those links. Every little bit off helps me buy more fittings! I am trying to get my
    head around a CIP ball/top connector. I assume I need a weldless bulkhead fitting through the
    lid with a ...

    Could those of you who have used the 2x1.5 concentric reducer to go to 2" sight glass comment
    on whether you think it was beneficial or if the 1.5" sight glass is sufficient for 15gal
    batches? Debatin...

    Forgive me if this was covered in the previous 109 pages, but things start to get fuzzy after a
    while. I am looking to typically brew 15 gal batches, but occasionally will want to double
    batch and get...

    My wife has become a huge fan of black ipas (thanks Wookey Jack!) and has asked me to start
