  • Posted in thread: Campden tablets necessary if diluting with RO? on 02-28-2015 at 02:00 PM
    FirstAid,I'd definitely still use the Campden tablet on the tap water. They're pretty cheap and
    it doesn't take much chlorine to ruin a batch of beer. Insurance is cheap!Cheers!

    Meirhof,When are you going to take that rig for a test drive? Looking forward to seeing that in
    action. It's given me some ideas as well. If your system works out, I may make changes to
    mine.Cheers!

    Just curious with all that yeast do you plan on a yeast starter? Or just pitch what's needed.
    This is a great idea,I will be ordering lids.Cheers, JoeWith that much yeast, I'm not sure I
    need a starte...

    Actually this is why I said said 15.5g sanke keg (where I ferment) - I have a tc top with a
    full bore compression fitting where I stick a 1/2" racking cane in and push the beer out with
    co2. I typical...

    I am going to solder in two corny disconnect ports on to my tops and will show you when I am
    done - one will be for flow in - one will be for air/co2 being released. When I am done - I
    will not have t...

    Butterfly allows more through, no?Well, with a ball valve, there is nothing in the path of the
    flow when the valve is opened. With a butterfly valve, the "flapper" is always in the way -
    when the butt...

    Well, the conical is filled and the trub catcher is catching trub. I did as suggested - poured
    the wort in the conical and did not pitch the yeast; instead I let it sit for a day. Here is
    what I got:2...

    Artifishal,Yes - I'm doing 5 gallon batches. The Zombie Dust recipe is actually 6 gallons.
    Maybe I should use the larger jar for both the trub and the yeast this first time through just
    so I have an i...

    Artifishal,Looks like you are getting your system figured out. You have a solution you're happy
    with yet?If all goes well, I'll have my first real test happening on Monday. I'm brewing a
    Zombie Dust c...

    Well, looks like I'll be brewing this weekend so I did a bit of work to prep my conical. I
    added wheels. This gave me plenty of room for the mason jar. I'm currently doing a final leak
    test with water...
