Posted in thread: Idea For Better In-Kettle Fermentation? on 02-12-2014 at 05:33 PM
Well, the obvious thing would be that your kettle is tied up. You also won't be able to use the
port to transfer once the yeast settles down to the bottom, so you would still need to rack.
You'd also ...
Posted in thread: Idea For Better In-Kettle Fermentation? on 02-12-2014 at 05:02 PM
I posted a few months back about an idea I had for filtering and aerating wort post-boil using
a pump and strainer. I've made a few batches this way and they've come out great. I had another

Been lurking since I found this site Xmas night. So now the official hello from the new guy.
Been talking for almost a year about trying homebrewing after sampling a friends. Well the wife

Posted in thread: How to clamp pump output tube to top of brew kettle? on 01-07-2014 at 10:33 PM
Hello! I'm using a March pump to recirculate the mash in my brew kettle. The input comes from
the kettle's weld, and the output goes through the tubing which I put through the top of the
Posted in thread: Aerating/Filtering With March Pump & Splashing? on 12-14-2013 at 10:43 PM
While brewing a batch this week, I had an idea. After boiling, I have a March pump that I was
running while using my immersion chiller to circulate the wort around and speed up the process.
While it w...
Posted in thread: Frustrated: Always (Well) Below Gravity Targets on 12-10-2013 at 06:39 PM
For anyone stumbling across this thread, I wanted to give an update. I found the problem -
though I was using water from a number of different places, after some research, I found that
it was all reve...
Posted in thread: Capacititative sensing of liquid level on 12-06-2013 at 03:41 PM
Instead of capacitive, why not use ultrasonic? This guys has proved it works for home heating
oil level - we should be able to make it work for water level. sensing can apparently have
problems with ...
Posted in thread: Parsing Water Report Numbers on 10-13-2013 at 09:10 PM
I've been dealing with horrible mash efficiency, and I tracked the problem down to the fact
that I was using untreated RO water, mistakenly figuring it'd be better. I decided to try tap
water, so I ca...
Posted in thread: Complex Solenoid Valve Routing? on 10-11-2013 at 05:59 PM
I had a late-night brainstorm that resulted in a mostly automated brewing process.
Unfortunately, I'd underestimated how difficult the fluid routing would be. Essentially, I have
7 junction points to ...
Posted in thread: Inline refractometer on 10-07-2013 at 09:25 PM
I designed an inline refractometer so that I can watch the gravity out of the mash tun as the
RIMS runs and also be able to cut off the sparge out when the gravity drops.Commercial process
