    Anyone in the MPLS area currently brewing on a single tier system? I really just want to see
    the setup. Let me know!

    Looking to get my eyes on an existing single tier brewing system as I'd like to build one with
    some of my home brew buddies. Anyone out there in the Minneapolis area currently brewing on a
    single tier...

    Bobby,Great work indeed. Working on a similar single-tier design and liked how you standardized
    the fitting locations on each of your vessels. Could you provide a little more detail
    surrounding the ML...

    At this point I'm looking at immersion chillers. Could easily go and buy one from the local
    hombrew store but thought this was easy enough of a DIY project. I'll have to check on tubing
    pricing as wel...

    Stainless vs. Copper?Ready, set, discuss.

    Howdy, just thought I'd weigh in on this thread, mostly to help another noob learn from a
    rather unpleasant experience I just had tonight.No matter what, always have some sort of means
    to release the ...

    Right on. Mess is clean, lid is back on, and the blow off tube is functioning as you all have
    indicated.Now I'm having a homebrew and am going to sit for a little while.Cheers guys, thanks
    for the hel...

    Thanks to all of you who responded. Good thing I didn't just lose it and dump everything...For
    the blow off tube I'm just using my bottling tube stuck into the inner airlock tube. The other
    end is in ...

    I'm pretty sure I just had a blow off. Brewed a Bells Oberon tweak last night and pitched the
    yeast about 9:00 pm. Used Wyeast 1010 smack pack.Just came down to the basement and found this
    mess.Is my ...

    The science behind the immersion chiller is all about heat transfer (with a sprinkling of fluid
    dynamics). The more surface area of the cooling element you have, the more efficient the cooler
    will be....
