  • The WHALES brewing club
  • 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.

  • speed of draining mash tun while bath sparging
    What's a psuedo fly sparge? If you are mixing techniques, then observed facts about batch
    sparging would not necessarily apply.

  • Soldering Stainless steel
    It will work just fine. You're only heating to 450F give or take. Stainless to brass is no
    problem for Harris stay clean flux.Tightening the fittings back together in the same way they

  • 100% Stainless Heating Element
    It looks like I'm about 3 weeks away from having some all stainless elements. It was only a
    matter of time before a few more vendors got with the program to keep the prices reasonable. I
    just bet $10,...

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.
