    Hello,I advise they be put in the bottom 3rd of the smallest batch size you do. 2-3 inches
    above your drain will work.I have my copper return arm attached to the top of my immersion
    chiller (I used a ...

    I have been running a HERMS system just like that and have had no problems with grain
    damaging/clogging the pump. What type of false bottom are you using in the mash tun?

    I put my IC on double duty as a HERMS coil, but the caveat is that my coil is 3/8" copper (1/2"
    OD). The larger diameter makes recirculation pretty smooth. I run my sparge water through the
    HERMS coil...

    Clogging concerns aside - I think it would work. However, wouldn't you need a second pump

    water would need t...

    What are your experiences with this hope schedule? Also, what methods are you using for your
    whirlpool/aroma steep? I have decided to experiment with even dropping the 30 minute boil
    addition, and jus...

    you don't. You're thinking about using 1oz of hops versus using, say, 30g.If a recipe is
    calling for 30g of hops, you'd have to measure 1.058oz of hops. Not any better is it?Recipes
    are generally roun...

    I remember when Jamil decided to switch to to Metric for the Jamil Show/ CYBI. He always talked
    about how much easier it was to scale down a commercial recipe because you can use percentages
    like gram...

    I love a great IPA. From what I hear, some of the best IPA's in the country are coming out of a
    little brewery in CA called Firestone Walker. I have made the Union Jack clone featured on
    CYBI, and I c...

    Stainless Ball-lock style QD's. cost a small fortune, but for durability, flowrate, and ease
    of use, they can'...
