    Well there's the rub now isn't it. In my preparations for going pro, I attempted to simulate
    the same procedures as if I was at the scale as I intend to start. However, a 7bbl conical
    won't fit in my ...

    How many fermenters? A sanke keg will fit in a fridge, no problems. Get one fridge per
    fermenter. Add a temp controller to each fridge and you can dial in each fermenter. Quick,
    easy, No glycol needed...

    Why not just put the fermenter in a temp controlled refrigerator?Wouldn't that defeat the
    purpose of the jacket?For my purpose, I wanted one centralized cooler/freezer with a 10 gallon
    batch of glycol...

    Man, you guys are relentless!!I purged the keg with argon to minimize any affect the welding
    had on the interior, and then we used a stainless wire wheel to brush the interior bright and
    clean and the...

    So I searched for tanks similar to these and realized that the jacket is not all 360 around
    the tank. It is separated, having the inlet on one side at the bottom and the outlet on the top
    of the othe...

    Are you worried about the coolant short circuiting with the connectors so close together? Any
    reason you didn't put them on opposite sides of the fermenter other than single sided access?
    How did you ...

    I thought the same thing about warm temperatures. Texas is an anomaly, because of the higher
    temps than where I am. The fermenting wort will only be just above the jacket, as I indicated
    earlier. As f...

    I got this idea after looking at some wine tanks. They only had a center section jacketed with
    glycol. I have heard they can keep the contents at fermentation temps relatively easily, as
    well as crash...

    Just finished welding the jacket on. Inlet port is lower, and has a pointed flow of around the
    keg. Outlet is full open. Now time to hook up glycol in a chest freezer with a pump and
    solenoid. We'll s...

    My advice--Don't worry about it. Once primary fermentation is over, just put them in. I just
    add mine to the secondary fermenter, wait 3-4 days, then transfer it to a corny keg. If you're
    going to bot...
