  • Posted in thread: 2 Fold Question on PEX/BPA and using hot water from a tank vs using cold water on 08-15-2014 at 10:22 PM
    I have used hot water tank water for all stages of brewing for several years now with great
    success. Last year I replaced the gas hot water heater with a larger modern one and added a
    convenience hot ...

    Just a follow-up to an old thread:After much searching around I recently located an appropriate
    handle for the man-cave facilities located just off the brewery space. It has provided many

    Go for it. Scorching will not be an issue unless the flame is licking the bottom of the drum.

    Install a shut-off at the hard pipe then a gas quick-disconnect. I use 1/2" rubber heater hose
    sold by the foot at the hardware store. It is disconnected and purged after each brew session
    before hit ...

    I have used them in both ball and pin-lock kegs. Better than the originals. Wish I had a bag of
    them years ago as it would have saved me many headaches. Well worth it.

    I had a similar issue with the lid until I made sure the gasket was seated properly and
    tightened the sealing ring as tight as it could go. I build a dolly with beefy wheels that
    allows me to roll it ...

    I recently used my new duda plate chiller for the first time. Before brewday, I ran several
    gallons of hot oxyclean through the chiller and plenty of clean water to rinse. The sticker on
    top was remov...

    Gear drive ensures the second roller will always be turning. After much use I think the knurls
