  • 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.

  • Hlt voltage
    It helps to write out a typical back to back brew session in terms of how much water is needed
    when so you know how much power you'll need and how much time it will take. The tricky thing
    about that s...

  • 15' of tubing and only foam!
    Thanks. I'm going to try doing that sometime. Here's what I do.I carbonate at 12 psi for a
    week. Disconnect the co2. Bleed the keg of co2. I put the gas back on with the co2 regulator
    pressure knob al...

  • Sight Glasses and Electric Pump issues
    I personally cut the vinyl in house so there are no vendor variations. Picking the best masking
    tackiness is the hardest part. Most people like the plastic clear mask and it requires the
    substrate to ...

  • Hlt voltage
    No question about it, you want 240v with 50 or 60 amps coming in to the box so you can run dual
    5500 watt elements.

  • Very Large Conicals
    Hmm, the larger ones look to be about 3' tall x 3' diameter. If it were a solid cylinder like a
    barrel, it would hold about 150 gallons. I think they may be closer to 85-100 gallons unless
    I'm way off...

  • 15' of tubing and only foam!
    I'm going to suggest that your secondary pressure gauge is way off, reading lower than the
    regulator pressure. If you can, attach a new 0-30 psi gauge to a keg gas QD and pop that onto
    one of your keg...

  • HELP! Need advice on PUMPS
    I think of 50-60 gallons as a tricky threshold where the Chugger 1/20th HP pumps are adequate
    but not ideal and where the 1/8th HP Chugger Max TEFC is just a touch more pump than you need.
    However, if...

  • Failed Element Scare and Questions
    I suppose it's possible to flow faster without problems but I think the goal is to keep the
    mash temp consistent without having to babysit just in case of pumping the bottom end dry.
    Disclaimer, I onl...

  • Can I leave the PID on?
    My panel is always on and that just means the PID is on. Has been that way for over a year.

  • Failed Element Scare and Questions
    Oh for sure you need to regulate the pump flow down. I've found that limiting to a quart per
    minute is enough to flow the bag just fine.

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.
