    It's always nice to have an extra layer of protection...especially when you're drinking.

    Raise the height of the bottles closer to the level in the fermenter and it will flow more
    slowly. You can also use one of those handy dandy tube flow control clamps.

    Looks good! Yum!ETA: IMO if you're going to go with a blowoff tube, go with the biggest one
    that will fit in the mouth of the carboy. 1", I believe, is the size. I don't use carboys, so I
    can't say fo...

    If your beer is fermenting vigorously enough to need of a blowoff tube, you don't even need to
    worry about doing it quickly. Just pull it off, bring it to the sink and clean it out. Sanitize
    it and re...

  • Posted in thread: Mini keg system on 07-10-2015 at 06:06 PM
    Now that I've gone to 2.5 gallon batches, I'm looking at these smaller kegs. It appears the
    chinese stackable kegs are more cheaply made than the AMCYL and AEB kegs. The max pressure
    rating is only 60...

  • Posted in thread: smoked hops... on 07-06-2015 at 02:14 PM
    Think about how much grain (10+ lbs) you use in a batch compared to hops (a few ounces). IMO
    the contribution will likely be minimal considering the relatively small amount of hops that
    are used in a ...

  • Posted in thread: BEST false bottom... on 04-23-2015 at 01:50 PM
    It pains me to say it, but the Blichmann is best I've every used. Coughing up the dough for a
    Boilermaker really sucks, but with HERMS, can't afford a stuck mash and that's what I was
    getting with var...

  • Posted in thread: Automated volume sensing idea/help on 04-23-2015 at 01:16 PM
    Was looking at the MS5805 as way to measure volume. Datasheet- sure of the sensitivity yet,
    but I was thinking of attaching via some sort of tubing to my existing sight gauge tube and
    connecting it v...

  • Posted in thread: How cheaply could you build a RIMS MLT? on 04-21-2015 at 02:38 PM
    Well, I don't quite think I can manage it for $80. I could have if I half-assed the electrical,
    but I want this thing to be safe, so that added a bit on there. It'll still come in under $100.
    I just h...

    Absolutely, poor business practices. Had I have been in that position, I would have eaten the
    cost of the newer kegs without question.Really poorly handled all around.
