    Thanks for the write up. I've just finally put my HERMS together and did a trial run yesterday
    and came across similar issues. Previously, I'd fashioned a sparge arm from a coil of 3/8"
    copper drilled...

    And if I were using propane, how would you change your advice? Chris

  • Posted in thread: HERMS build. Thermowells? on 01-19-2015 at 09:15 AM
    I'm building a manually controlled HERMS for my brew bench. I've got a thermowerks thermometer
    with 2 separate probes - one for my MT and one for my HLT but I have to switch them over by
    hand when I d...

  • Posted in thread: quick connect/Camlocks for smaller diameter tubing? on 01-06-2015 at 10:44 PM
    One component of my brewery - my sparge arm utilizes 1/4" copper tubing. Previously I've used
    PE tubing and fittings. Now that I've upgraded to a Chugger pump and 1/2" silicon tubing I've
    got a conund...

    Unless you're doing 10 gallon batches, I can't possibly imagine how a 5itre flask would be
    useful. I generally use a 1L flask. I'll use a gallon jug when i want to make a 2L starter.
    Many of the flask...

    I'd second the reverse order on your upgrade.I built my stand in the spring, and just kept
    brewing my usual way for a while. I picked up a pump and converted a keg to a MLT in the summer
    and started u...

    Ha!This is exactly the item I was asking about a while ago! quite like it. It's bang on for
    the volume and easy to reset. The translation of the Chin-glish took a little while but it
    wasn't any harde...

    Not anything about kettles mind you, but i just ordered some stuff from fireman and was a

    OK. Problem solved.I had to modify the shutter. When I removed the shutter entirely, it worked
    great. On full. Also a little scary closing it down. WOOF!So, I used a coping saw and a couple
    of files t...

    Worth giving it a try adjusting from a mostly closed position and slowly opening it until you
    establish a nice blue flame.I will try this to see what happens, but I sort of mimicked it by
    using my fi...
