    ABOUT ME

  • I have wanted to brew for the last 8 years, but temporary living situations, and a 4 year stint in Germany (right on the belgian border) kept me from assembling all the crap needed to brew until August 2013. I started all-grain and kegging right away, and thus wanted to build a nice system I can grow into. I also am a handy woodworker and have some wiring/engineering knowledge from work.

    the yeast will not change, so anything belgian you would make with WY3522 is a go. general rule
    of thumb is not to go from a really strongly flavored beer to a really light one with your
    slurry. i.e. ...

    If the beer is already carbonated, be extremely careful putting anything into it! The hops,
    bag, strainer, etc. will create nucleation sites and could cause excessive foaming. Whatever
    method you use ...

    Looking at your photos again I see two things different with our setups. One is my chamber is
    actually divided in two smaller chambers, so the volume/transmission cooler is half what you
    have. So perh...

    Bummer man!I have no trouble with just a 2 gallon bucket on the hump an aquarium pump, so my
    first guess would be sealing, second guess insulation, third guess is chamber size, although I
    bet my chamb...

    That is the old hookups, are you sure you have them tight? Anyway, some tanks have a safety
    device that shut them down if there is a leak. Try shutting off the valve on the burner side to
    off, then op...

    I use 2 small rare earth magnets... one inside and one outside to hold onto each other. This
    worked wonderfully in kegs, although now I mostly dry hop in carboys as my kegs are O2-free
    zones. Still wo...

    You can just attach a little worm clamp to the PVR valve on the inside of the keg lid, tie the
    hop bag up to that, no welding required.this sounds like a winner.Also, like i stated in the
    intro, I don...

    I would never use a ping pong ball. It is definitely not food grade plastic. Most ping pong
    balls smell like crap too. Would not want that floating in my beer.I did not think of this!
    Looks like i'll ...
