Posted in thread: Thoughts on this counter flow chiller. The CRAB on 05-16-2013 at 02:13 PM
I have thought about them but that kind of takes away done of the DIY for me. I was going to
use either tap water or the steam beside my house for the cold water source.I would go with the
tap water o...

That's a pretty cool idea, but for efficiency's sake, you may want to rearrange the design.
Instead of splitting the flow, and running 4 parallel lines, you should run it in series,
making the wort tr...

Your best bet will be the hopblocker screen. If you are worried about it clogging, you could
switch to whole hops. There is really no other way to keep it out but by filtering it.

The problem here is not related to your input water pressure fluctuations. I would suggest
installing a flowmeter, so that you can monitor the rate of flow. Using this, you could figure
out a rise in ...

I'm pretty sure you would NOT want to use pvc for this. You could use copper if you keep the
sensors insulated from the pipe. Is this going to be something where the water makes contact
with the senso...

done, Cazamodo, makes me want to build this even more. Thanks for the inspiration. Sure beats a

I never got around to building this, but would be glad to talk you through it. I had planned to
use it as more of a RIMS device, where you pump the wort into the kettle, and it would pour
over a weir ...

I'm also interested in using Arduino if I ever get around to automating anything. Can it be
used stand-alone, or does it need to be connected to a computer to function?

I have two comments. If you use plenty of sparge water, the left over wort will not be a
problem. Whatever's left should be pretty weak anyway, if you sparge a good pre-boil volume.The
