Go to the ebay listing and click on the picture of the guy holding the conical. Blow it up, the
poster behind him on the wall is Toledo Metal Spinning. It also looks like it could be the same
Posted in thread: Why bother with carboys and blow-off tubes? on 08-29-2014 at 02:01 AM
I had 6 glass carboys, and I always handled them carefully. I had several in my garage and one
broke somehow. No beer was involved. I think my son hit it with the push mower. What surprised
me was how...

I just flush with water and swirl around. It does take awhile to get them out. The hops were in
for 7-8 days, then cold crashed two days. After the cold crash most fell to the bottom. A lot
of the hop...

The fridge is at around 39 degrees, I think I will leave them at 12 psi. I just thought it was
strange to see basically the same beer at identical pressure carb so differently.

30 psi for one day, then both were at 12 for 4.5 days now. They both are the same recipe, but

The electrical panel looks pretty packed. From the photo, it looks like there are 7 240 volt
breakers already in the panel, which I can't imagine what they all are for. The top two on the

Using you theory, wouldn't the first few millimeters of a direct fired kettle also be above 212
degrees? You should clean an element after every brew, usually quite easy just using a green
Posted in thread: What gauge electrical cord for element on 04-07-2014 at 12:42 AM
10 guage is correct, can handle 30 amps. watts/volts =amps. 5500/240=22.92 amps. However, I
