    ABOUT ME

  • I went all grain because the kits I got from William's did not list any of the ingredients and I wanted more control. I brew once a month. IPA and Stout are my favorite styles but I have started doing a ton of lagers in the last year. --- Sept 5, 2010 First Brew Day --- April 2, 2011 First All Grain --- Dec 20, 2011, Brew Stand Built --- March 20, 2012 Kegging System Built

    It seems fixed. Seems to pump better than ever. It pumped 2 gallons of StarSan in 25 seconds.

    I disassembled the chugger head and found the impeller hard to turn. After cleaning it and
    putting it back together I think it may be fixed.In my previous trouble shooting, I was under
    the impression ...

    Have you looked into using a whirlpool?The 300 micron hop spider makes the whirlpool
    difficult.Prior to the hop screen I did whirlpool, leaving the trub in the middle of the
    kettle.

  • Posted in thread: Size brew kettle for 10 gallon all grain batches,,, on 04-29-2016 at 09:24 PM
    I just did a 10 gallon batch in my 100 quart (25 gallon) pot this week. It's not too big, in my
    opinion. I started with 15 gallons preboil. (So, I'd be terrified doing it in a 15 gallon
    pot.)But I do ...

    I under stand it takes money to R&D and then have these things built. But, come on 45 bucks
    (plus shipping) for a glorified bazooka screen. No thanks...I'll stick with my $3.50 dollar DIY
    hop screen.M...

    The weird thing was the the kegs got more carbonated BEFORE I changed out the CO2 tank. I did
    not change the temp/lines/kegs.... or even move the kegs.Maybe I turned up the pressure when
    the tank was ...

    Sooooo.....what are you going to do with your ss chugger head?I think I'll disassemble it on
    camera.There must be something wrong with it.Why do you want to make me an offer?I wouldn't

    I had a 15# CO2 tank.... lasted forever! (ok, maybe two years)....any way... it just ran out
    and I swapped in a 10# CO2 tank as soon as I noticed. (before the beer went flat for sure)But
    several of my...

    Here is what my kettle looks like now after a 10 gallon batch.I might be willing to try it. I
    just hope it doesn't clog up.
