Posted in thread: Sparge Arm options? on 08-28-2015 at 08:06 PM
I'd suggest option D, siphon sprayer you ever decided to do a RIMS/HERMS setup, both A and B
will clog with bits of grain and husks. You'll never be running option C at a high enough flow
rate that ...

I would think that the epoxy mixer rods that a few people use in the keg dip tube to reduce the
length of line required to get a good pour could be useful for this.e.g.
Posted in thread: Adding an s30 valve to a firkin on 08-23-2015 at 01:20 PM
You won't get much that fits to an S30 valve, although some are available in the UK, albeit

are readily a...
Posted in thread: Which false bottom do you use? on 08-18-2015 at 11:35 PM
I like the domed kind (bought from AIH I think). 12" for a 10 gal cooler, 9" for a 5 gal

I've just upgraded my 8 gal to 10 gal for full volume boils with 5.5 gal into fermentor (all

Most likely some of the rubber seals have gone.It looks like you might be able to get a seal
kit from if it's a 1/2 pint model. No instructions unfortunately.A google also finds this
thread on refur...
Posted in thread: BeerSmith and 0min vs Steep/Whirlpool on 08-15-2015 at 06:07 PM
Beersmith calculates IBU contributions to the recipe on a per-ingredient basis. It has to
assume that you don't whirlpool the boil additions (after all, you might not whirlpool), and
when calculating ...
