OnNe more question . . . what is the best way to oxegenate the wort before (or when) you put it
into the fermenter. Right now I either shake the glass carboy or run small pump with a stone on
the end ...

I boil my chiller for the entire boil. My thinking was that adding at 15 mins would drop the
temp and adding it early would avoid that.I certainly see a drop in temp when I put it in at 15

Thanks for all the tips. I'm going to assemble some parts and give it a try. Tegra's drawing is
helpful. As is typcial, I'll probably come up with my own wild ass design and go from there.
That's the ...

I could use some help with a simple question about this process. I went through the first 200
posts and cannot find a clear answer. I'm using 5 gal. corny kegs, ten gallon batches and plan

Go electric. It may seem like it is difficult to figure out, but a little homework and help
from the guys on this site, you can do it. Heck, i did it. And never read a schematic before I

If the kegs were not cold, you won't get much CO2 to mix with the beer. The colder the beer the
more CO2 it will accept.

To keep from boiling over, I used to spray water on the foam. Lately I have been using my
vacuum - turned the hose around to blow air - and blow the air over the foam. It seems to break
the foam down ...
Posted in thread: Difference between flameout and aroma steep on 04-26-2014 at 10:33 AM
Flameout is when you turn off the boil and then add your addition. Usually hops added for extra
flavor just before fermentation.Not sure what you mean by "aroma steep".

Good idea on the heavy duty switch. But I like doing just as you said, switching the PID output
on or off.The take away for others (and for me) trying to diagnose electric problems: Always

Thanks. And since by design, an SSR will fail in the closed position, this should always be the
