  • Posted in thread: 5gal brew, 6gal carboy, no blowoff? on 07-10-2014 at 04:50 PM
    I just use a blow off on all my beers and then I don't have to worry about it. It takes

    save yourself any po...

    You have a flow meter set up on your mash tun?Dang.No, unfortunately not. I just use a nalgene
    bottle and a stop watch when I start lautering, it just takes a minute or two to get it dialed
    in and the...

    Yeah my Craigslist experience was essentially the same. I could find 5cu ft ones for pretty
    cheap, but anything bigger was nearly the same as new, retail price and I would have to try and

    I have a 5 cu ft chest freezer that only fits one carboy, after a little DIY I added a collar
    to the top and now it fits a second carboy on the compressor hump. I still have room for a
    small space hea...

    Yeah it is a beyond foul smell....ironically my mash tun is sitting outside right now with
    21lbs of spent grain from my saturday brew session. I am waiting to see my neighbor to give it

    I have a hop rocket and it works very well. I added quick disconnects and run hoses from my
    pump to the hop rocket and from the hop rocket to the heat exchanger. It doesn't clog or leak.
    It cleans eas...

    alcohol. The beer needs more conditioning time. I plan to lager for 5 to 6 weeksThanksCorrect.

    Ultimately the goal is to get the correct preboil volume of wort at the anticipated gravity so
    I would adjust accordingly until you get there. It may man adding an extra half gallon of water
    or .25lb ...

    I don't care as much about the liquid going into my mash tun as I do the flow rate coming out.

    on top. The...
