  • 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.

    First, you do have a four wire supply going into the panel correct? L1, L2, N, G right?To make

    Yes, right now we have the center elbow connector and the bulkhead separate. You can also get
    it as a conversion kit if you already have a cooler.

  • BSII / False Bottom / Dead Space
    All you have to do is slightly modify the mash thickness. If you like the consistency of 1.25
    qts/lb, set that, observe the strike volume and then just add one gallon. There's no specific
    setting in B...

  • Have I been batch sparging wrong?
    I'm glad you mentioned Denny because I know he chimed in quite a bit on the topic of one or two
    sparge additions. He's always said he didn't see a big enough difference to warrant the extra

  • Sanke HLT to Electric
    Even on 120v (1500w), it would only take 1.5 hours at 100% output to get 10 gallons to rise
    100F. At that point, a PID would only cycle on probably 5% of the time to hold the temp. In
    other words, it ...

  • closed system submers. wort chiller
    You'll do a lot better with smaller chunks of ice rather than large 3 gallon chunks. The
    surface area just isn't high enough to keep the water really cold. The other thing you can do

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.
