I only really noticed that when brewing really light, clean beers like pilsners or blondes with
little hops to cover up the DMS. The aroma hops was the primary reason for the change.

I've been using a CFC for a year now, and it's been working ok, but I wanted a way to chill my
wort to below 120F as quickly as possible. A CFC was chilling 10 gallons of wort to pitching
temps in abo...

There are lots of formulas on the internet for this, but your best bet is to start with a long
line, and keep chopping off 6" at a time until you get a good pour...about a pint in 8 seconds.

Foam happens for a couple of reasons.1. Over carbonation. If you have over-carbonated beer,
there's not a really quick way to deal with it. Take the keg off the gas, and bleed the
pressure out of it e...

I say STAY AWAY FROM THESE PUMPS! I recently got one of the stainless steel versions, and the
input fitting was an NTP fitting, and the output was a BSP fitting...I think. In any case I
could only thr...

Well, I get decent water pressure in my house. It's just that after water going through 12' of
hose to get to the CFC, and then through that 25' of fairly obstructed hose, the output is
pretty slow. I...

Your problem may be your water flow rate. I have to slow the flow to keep it at pitching temp.I
wonder if there is a simple solution to the low flow rate...A march pump between the faucet and
the CFC ...

My CFC is 3/8 OD copper inside 5/8 ID garden hose.What I'm trying to determine is what I should
be expecting from my CFC. I've read that many people have to restrict the flow of water to

Shouldn't I be able to chill the wort closer to the input water temperature though?

I've been using my 25' CFC for a few months now, and it's doing what I need it to do for now.
Right now it's gravity fed, and with my water temperature being about 48F, I chill the wort
down to about ...
