  • Started brewing on extract kits in August 2006 after a horribly failed Mr Beer batch. Converted to all grain after 5 batches and haven't looked back. I'm currently working out the kinks in a custom single tier, 3 sanke, natural gas fired system. I'm a batch sparging advocate and like to teach new all grain brewers that you can achieve high 80% efficiencies. I'm focused on brewing highly drinkable beers right now and plan to start expanding BJCP knowledge to become a better brewer.

  • Force carbing at room temp? and bottling?
    You can carbonate at room temp all you like (yes using the chart) but you must get it down to
    35F before you attempt to bottle it off the keg.

  • Dip Tube For Mash Tun
    Are you actually using that bucket as a bottling bucket after you use it for a mash tun? That's
    a little risky, re: lacto infection.

  • Buy Kegerator or DIY
    If you were planning to limit to 2 kegs AND you would have equipped a DIY with the cheapest
    possible tower and faucets, then buying ready built is fine. That's the thing though, most
    kegerators come w...

  • What size gas line?
    I like 1/4" ID for co2 because it will work on 1/4, 5/16, and 3/8" barbs with varying degrees
    of struggle (but no leaks). If you use 5/16, you can't use 1/4" barbs. In any case, using QDs
    with MFL por...

  • Closed Loop Wort Cooling System
    My cusory look at his setup led me to believe that was exactly what he was doing.I wasn't so
    sure based on the fact that the wort chiller was in the loop with the chiller machine and only
    about 5 gall...

  • Best tap/conversion option for Sanke kegs
    If the in/out barbs on there are 1/4" NPT then in theory you can go with the post adapters
    first and then thread the ball lock 19/32" gas and liquid posts right

  • Natural gas burners
    The burners still need to be about 10" away from the pots to allow fresh air to enter the
    bottoms of the tips. If you wind screen them, it has to start at about the top of the tips and
    go up from ther...

  • Closed Loop Wort Cooling System
    The chiller he is using can rapidly cool incoming liquids down to -10C. I think it'll manage
    keep the recirculating water cold enough to drop the wort temp.All you need to do is very basic
    math to fig...

  • Closed Loop Wort Cooling System
    The unit is using air cooling of a heat exchanger (probably a copper coil with fins brazed on).
    As Claudius wrote, it's only rated at 450 watts of cooling. I know that's not a number most
    people under...

  • Closed Loop Wort Cooling System
    That chiller is nearly doing nothing to help. To put it in perspective, if the unit were doing
    all the cooling, it would take 4 hours to drop 5 gallons of wort by 165F. Once you start
    running wort thr...

Yo Bobby!

Just wanted to say thanks for everything you do here and on you tube. I've finally started to get really serious about brewing and your info has been indispensable. Keep up the great work man!

Thanks for all the useful information you have posted on various sites.

I am currently building a single tier stand of my own and was hoping that you would share the dimensions of yours, that is if you are happy with them.

If not would you please tell me the dims of the stand you would hope for.
