  • Posted in thread: 15 gallon batches on 07-30-2015 at 01:06 AM
    For me it was more like a pirate or grizzled old man with some Scotty from Startrek thrown in
    at the appropriate times. Just marvelous stuff. And with the inclusion of measures and
    techniques it fits ...

  • Posted in thread: Where did you get your HERMS coil? on 07-29-2015 at 09:31 PM
    If I could do my HERMS coil over again I'd have it attach to the lid of the pot instead of
    drilling through the sides of the pot. Makes cleaning out the HLT a lot easier. Not that it
    gets very dirty i...

    You obviously have never done a 15 gallon batch. Things get more complicated than that and the
    techniques for handling them vary. There is a lot to learn from other people who actually do
    large batche...

    I bought this heatsink off eBay and it either got some cheap black paint or black anodized
    coating on it but it scratching off and looks bad.Could I spray it with Rustoleum? Would it

  • Posted in thread: Chugger Stainless Worth the Extra $? on 07-27-2015 at 05:50 PM

    for two pumps? $220 Poly versus $300 Stainless.DavidYes, I think it is. I started out with the
    poly heads...

  • Posted in thread: How to keep beer glassware from condensating (for photos)? on 07-22-2015 at 05:34 PM
    Condensate forms because the temperature of the beer is colder than the ambient air.Raise the
    temperature of the beer or lower the temperature of the ambient air.

    Do you think I would get higher efficiency with batch or fly?Fly sparging usually results in
    better mash efficiency, but takes more time. I usually get 75% brewhouse efficiency with batch
    sparging and...

  • Posted in thread: Counterflow chiller question on 07-21-2015 at 04:48 PM
    An efficient CFC should be able to get the wort to within 2 of whatever your tap water
    temperature is in a single pass. In the wintertime, I have to throttle my water way back or
    else I'd have 50 wo...

  • Posted in thread: 90% mash efficiency on newHERMS system a fluke? on 07-16-2015 at 03:18 PM
    A 75% mash efficiency is pretty poor, I would think. A 75% brewhouse efficiency is about
    average.I usually get around 85% brewhouse efficiency with my system, but sometimes I hit 90%.
    I use a HERMS an...
