    Hello!A brief background on my brewing system: I put together a BrewTroller controlled electric
    single-tier all grain HERMS system. The night before I brew, I set up my grain hopper with the
    entire gr...

    Sorry, dogs, I'll head back and see if I can upload them somewhere else. I think I may have
    linked directly from facebook - even though I have not removed them, maybe permissions have
    changed or somet...

    Hi ClaudiusB,No major updates but I noticed the humidity (and/or barley flour) might be a bit
    much for the little solenoid. I took it apart and sanded things down to reduce the buildup
    (rust? wet flou...

    After a few batches I noticed the trap door started to get a little gummy. I added a small
    plate to keep moisture out of the hopper:

    Just checked HomeDepot.com - 5/8 compression to 1/2 MPT are $5.11 - 5/8 to 3/4 are 9.92. I need
    12 of these buggers for the current design. Ouch!

    Thanks for the updates! Actually this makes it perfectly clear. I think I may end up trashing
    my entire PVC structure. With the 1/2" ends I'll need 5/8 (compression) to 1/2" (male pipe)
    fittings 0 I'l...

    Hmm. Dang. Wish I would've checked the thread again last night.I put this together with 1/2"
    (smooth inside) connectors on the end :

    Awesome build, I dig it! I really want to put something like this together - just a bit smaller
    so I can mount it under the counter where I brew. I'm currently using a copper-inside-hose
    chiller which...

    Minor updates to the ring - put an elbow on it so I can swap out sections of copper based on
    the height of my grain

    I attached a diode to the solenoid and it still fires. Whee. Always nice when you change
    something without it breaking. I also managed cut the daylight out of my finger (how'd the
    daylight get in?) so...
