Posted in thread: What CO2 to purge secondary with? on 12-06-2011 at 12:57 PM
You could always drop a block of dry ice in the bucket and let it sublime for a nice layer of
CO2 in your secondary. I would think that your beer wouldn't absorb that much O2 in the hour or
so it take...
Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 11-26-2011 at 08:24 PM
Was in the mood to brew today too. Did an original recipe Irish Red Ale and I hit all my
numbers spot on!! Only thing that didn't seem to come out as planned was the color. LOL I have
an Irish Brown A...

I filter using the same homemade filter that Zamial referred to and it really works great. I
use 1 and 5 micron filters which are around $5 and you get multiple uses out of them.

Gonna do another 10g batch, of porter, and see if a 20g boil kettle would work out better.
Maybe throw in a few better bottles and a wine kit....not real sure right now. LOL

Turbo yeasts produce some pretty nasty end product. I'd imagine that you'd have to filter it
WAY to many times to make it worth it. If you've making cordials / liquors etc, and looking for
around 20% ...

heat. I thou...

letting them air dry. Sounds strange, but It's worked for me a few times. Sealed container of
Posted in thread: March or Chugger Pump? on 11-16-2011 at 01:25 AM
I have the chugger ss version and really like it so far. I put the female ends on the hoses for
the above stated reasons too; also easier to clean them being on the hoses instead of
Posted in thread: What is the difference between these two brew kettles? on 11-15-2011 at 03:15 PM
Whatever route you go, go bigger, you'll be happier in the end. I got the 15gal Blichmann and
it's tricky to do 10gal batches in. With Fermcap, a spray bottle and some flame control it's
doable, but I...

Does anybody know the duty cycle of these pumps? I'm assuming they are 100% so one could use
recirculation through-out, say a 90min mash/sparge?
