    If you are using standard 20# tanks, it sounds like you are tripping the safety device in the
    tank valve, that prevents it from allowing the lpg to free flow. What I do to make sure this
    doesn't happe...

    Are you building this yourself, or buying it premade?I tend to think 30 ft should be fine for a
    5 gallon batch. You will want a way to agitate the wort around it to keep the wort from
    stratifying.Keep...

    When I tried a prechiller, I had to manually agitate it for it to work because the water around
    the prechiller kept stratifying, and I would run through a lot of ice for not much benefit.
    This was whe...

    don't use the prechiller until you need to, otherwise you will run through a tremendous amount
    of ice unnecessarily.

    You can also go with a post chiller:use your current counterflow chiller, and then go through
    another coil of copper that is submerged in ice water that is being agitated. That should be a
    good option...

    What is the current diameter and length of your immersion chiller?Do you think you will ever
    move to 10 gallon batches?Pre-chillers in my experience don't work that well and are a pain to
    use.Agitatio...

    I use 1/2 inch silicone tubing, thick walled. I recirculate in the last 15 minutes of the boil
    in order to heat sterilize the tubing and the pump. I just rinse it after brewing. I've used
    the same tub...

    Excellent brewstand!

    The 3/16''ID Bev-Flex tubing has a 5/16''OD, so you can use the JG fittings with the
    appropriate tube fitting size.The pressure drop per foot is lower for the tubing, so you need
    more of it, I've read...
