  • Posted in thread: Thermometer quality on 06-06-2013 at 12:38 PM
    Thermapen! just bought Thermoworks' Therma-K, along with the same probe used on the
    Thermapen. In my ice water and boiling water tests, it was absolutely dead accurate. I like the
    Therma-K because y...

  • Posted in thread: Chugger pumps, are they worth the price? on 06-06-2013 at 12:08 PM
    I have two and they both work great - no unusual noises unless I screw up and let the input
    flow rate drop. Defects happen with any product - why not call them and ask for an exchange?It
    might be good...

    Looks pretty nice. The only thing I'd be concerned about is the thermometer adhesive pulling
    off once it gets hot, given the tight curve of the pipe. If that turns out to be an issue, I
    suppose you co...

  • Posted in thread: Whats the biggest bonehead mistake you've made while brewing? on 05-24-2013 at 09:30 PM
    Other than habitually leaving valves open and spilling wort on the floor, one of the dumber
    things I've done was try to use my hop spider bag as a trub filter by recirculating my wort
    through it while...

  • Posted in thread: Dual Pressure CO2 Regulator Help on 05-24-2013 at 08:48 PM
    The one zachattack linked should work, but it might be too short. This one looks slightly
    longer: bought a Taprite "add-a-regulator" which included the part you're looking for. So if
    you need a longe...

    Nice. I killed my by storing in improper solution. Just ordered the Amazon replacement. Thanks
    for the tip. I've been meaning to get that done for a while.What solution did you use? I store
    mine in Ha...

    Should I convert my kegs to ball lock?I wouldn't - posts are expensive. Its really more
    important to have all your kegs be one or the other. Having a mix would be a pain. It seems
    pin-lock kegs are ac...

  • Posted in thread: Would this work? Siphoning from a keg on 05-17-2013 at 11:21 AM
    It will probably work. If you wanted to save even the tiny bit of CO2 it would require, you
    could connect a gas QD with another dangling tube and just blow in it really hard to get the
    siphon started....

  • Posted in thread: Should I? on 05-17-2013 at 11:06 AM
    Be wary, the handles on my kettle gave out before anything else. Very sketchy having a kettle
    break and drop 7 G of hot boiling wort on the way to the cooling tub.Most kettles specifically
    indicate in...

  • Posted in thread: Keezer + fermentation Chamber = Fail for me. Need help on 05-16-2013 at 11:30 PM
    How full is the keezer? If its mostly empty, adding some "thermal ballast" may help this work
    better.Also, how are you taking the temperature for the keezer thermostat? If you've just
    modified the bui...
