    That's pretty weird. I have the same gear reducer and didn't have any issues. You should be
    able to get Lovejoy coupler halves in almost any shaft diameter size from McMaster Carr.
    Another option woul...

    I always found racking really slows down fermentation. My first "big ticket" equipment purchase
    a few years back was a conical fermenter. It's awesome and totally worth the money. No more
    racking to s...

    Great thread!! I mostly use WLP500 (and mostly make tripels) which ferments quickly, but
    flocculation is poor and supposedly doesn't have as complex flavors as WLP530 and WLP540. I've
    used WLP530 on a...

    Great approach for your build. Using a gear reducer is the way to go. Belt and sheaves makes
    the cart more complicated and is just dangerous. I've had mixed results with the Barley
    Crusher. My idle ro...

  • Posted in thread: Question about biulding a thermowell? on 03-02-2014 at 04:38 PM
    I'd caution against thermal paste. I tried that and it made such a seal around the thermocouple
    probe that I couldn't push it into the thermowell because the air in the thermowell couldn't
    come out (t...

    Nice build. I really like the cover. I may have to build one. For those who like this build, I
    did a similar one and posted details on parts: Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

    Besides wasting oxygen, is there a down side to over oxygenating?

  • Posted in thread: All You Ever Wanted to Know About Oxygenation on 12-27-2013 at 04:18 PM
    I forget if it was mentioned earlier (I remember seeing a pic someone posted), but what flow
    meter have you guys found to be useful to work with your airstone O2 systems? I received a
    fermentap O2 sys...

    So, if I want to go this route, what "size" of aquarium pump are you using and how long do youe
    aerate to get 8 ppm??An aquarium pump will take about 5 minutes. Here's a comparison of methods
    such as ...

  • Posted in thread: All You Ever Wanted to Know About Oxygenation on 12-26-2013 at 07:09 PM
    I didn't see anywhere in the thread where the data from White's Yeast book for aeration using
    o2 is reported. On page 79 from the book, it is reported that the author's measurements with
    5.3g of 1.077...
