Posted in thread: Nano Brewer System from Colorado Brewing on 02-18-2016 at 03:12 PM
I just simply didn't want all that space used any more, I'm a wood worker as well and my garage
is fairly small. I seriously can't come up with a reason why I ever brewed with 3 vessels when
the same ...

In my opinion, it's too much heat shock for the wort that does go through the coil.I think he's
right. I have a HERMS system, and a year ago had major problems while brewing a wit. The

If you aren't going to get a new pot, the binder clip idea seems solid. New pot is a good idea
though. I look at these things like this: I'm probably going to upgrade eventually, so why not
just buy i...

Right, many inductive loads (like motors) will have a large inrush current due to the starter
capacitor. Resistive loads are better behaved.

Just a quick question... I have seen this 30 amp switch suggested many times and have almost
bought it, but is the 30 amp rating at 240 volts or at 120 volts... ???They are sort of
independent of each...

I'll chime in with my 2 cents (why not). I think the stildragon kit is the easiest route to go
to meet what the OP wants. For safety, I'd also add a switch, just to be able to mechanically
kill the po...
Posted in thread: Leave last hydrometer sample on counter on 02-11-2016 at 06:56 PM
I leave it on there because I forgot about it. Usually it ferments. Then, gets infected, then
gets smelly. Then I get yelled at.I'm not sure it is always a great representation of what is
Posted in thread: Using a convoluted counterflow chiller as a heat exchanger in a HERMS? on 02-08-2016 at 07:51 PM
I've been thinking about a similar idea. Sorry, I don't have a drawing. The idea is to combine
HERMS and RIMS equipment. Instead of an HLT with a heating element in it, just use a small 1
gallon pot w...

I've made beers that were pretty tasty straight out of the fermenter, so I get it. I have a
Pliny clone on tap now that is fantastic the instant it gets close to carbed up, and you want
to drink it AS...

Yeah, that stuff is great. It also helps passivate the SS on your kettle to prevent rust (yes,
SS can rust). I use it for our pots and pans too when they need a good scrubbing. You should
get in the h...
