  • Posted in thread: Insulation or no insulation? on 09-14-2013 at 03:02 AM
    Other than making home-modification/customization more difficult, I can't really think of any
    drawbacks to having an insulated kettle. I would definitely prefer something like that, as I am
    currently ...

  • Posted in thread: Who's got the cheapest PBW? on 09-04-2013 at 09:30 PM
    I have pretty soft water and have used this recipe with the Sun Oxygen cleaner and Red Devil
    TSP (3:1). Works extremely well. Never an issue with deposits (and I have left it sitting in
    kegs for a cou...

    Wow, 1HP is pretty intense. You may have trouble keeping the hose from blowing off the barb. I
    recently put a 1HP sump pump in and that thing scares me when it runs. Then again, it's running
    through 2...

    Spike brewing pushes their products on this forum quite a bit. I use the same kettles that they
    offer but I installed my own weldless fittings. They are good quality economy kettles. If you
    want a wel...

    By dead space I'm referring to the vertical make up of the kettle. There would be a lot of room
    in there if I were to only bring over 7 gallons for a 5 gallon batch. I assume there would just
    be a lot...

    That picture was taken using a 1/2" barb actually. And yes, of course as the diameter of the
    tubing decreases, the pressure will increase and the liquid will travel further. A keg spear is
    cavernous c...

    I would think a small sump pump would work fine because they are designed for a large volume of
    water. Sit the sump pump in a large barrel with the keg hooked up that way it recirculates the
    cleaning ...

    Oh, I see. That would require a keg full of solution which is something I'd like to avoid. But
    i see how that would work. The benefit of the inverted method is you can clean the keg by
    circulating a f...

    Eh, I'd call it an inch if I was being generous. What the picture doesn't really convey is the
    way the water exits the spear. By the time it reaches the top there is so little pressure that
    it doesn't...

    By dead space in the boil kettle, are you referring to the loss of volume that you won't be
    able to pick up from the dip tube? I just measured that volume in my 20 gallon Brewers Hardware
    kettle (you ...
