    I have a 70 quart mash tun b/c1. Rather have it and not need it instead of vice versa, I have
    over flowed it!2. My session beers start at 7% abv3. I have room to grow.There is some dead
    space, but if ...

    So I guess for my peristaltic pumps I need to be on a different circuit..

    If you are doing 1 gallon batches a single 1500W heater should work. I am not sure if I
    understand your post correctly, but 3x 1500W elements in a single gallon is overkill. I use
    4000W to heat 10 gal...

    I'm trying to build a 1 gallon automated brew system for test batches. My goal is to plug a
    single control box into a residential wall outlet to power the rig. Based on my understandings
    of explanatio...

    Cornelius kegs are rated for up to 130 psi, so the pressure relief valve will operate at
    considerably less than that max working pressure. The bigger issue is that the PV valves are
    made of plastic an...

    of fact, the chart only goes up to 1,000 PSIG @ 546.4 deg F. There's probably a good reason
    for that. IIRC, it's also illegal to run an un-certified and unlicensed pressure vessel at very
    high press...

    A 1500 w element is still 1500 w no matter how you use it. I can't see how you would get any
    more efficient than sticking the thing straight it the kettle. The energy put into this
    limitedly closed sy...

    The big boys also use calandria's. The energy savings and higher boil off rate are the goal, as
    well as using one element for two purposes. If I remember correctly, and I might not, by
    putting the hea...

    I know what a calandria is, you just never mentioned that you wanted to use one. What it has to
    do with HERMS still eludes me.I've thought it might double up as an external calandria.The
    sealed pressu...
