Posted in thread: Anyone know the ID tube size that will fit over a Perlick 525SS faucet? on 07-07-2015 at 05:17 PM
When I connect my faucets together for daisy chain cleaning I use 1/2" silicone hose and it
just slides over the outside of each faucet and is snug enough so it doesn't come of with my
pump running. S...

Look up on Wikipedia and find out that 85% H3PO4 has a specific gravity of 1.685. Thank you for
taking the time to explain this. I had spent a few hours online trying to figure it out but
Posted in thread: So where did I screw this up? on 07-02-2015 at 05:40 PM
Assuming the original is 85% by weight H3PO4, then I get your diluted acid as 29% by weight
H3PO4, so you added almost 50% more acid than you intended.If the original acid is 85% by
volume, then your ...

This is what I was thinking too. Percent by weight or percent by volume?I think I must have

I've been using Brun Water for a while and always hit my pH dead on with Lactic acid. But
always wanting to improve my beer I decided to buy some Phosphoric Acid (85%). Since it was so
strong I decide...
Posted in thread: Hop scaling in BeerSmith on 06-29-2015 at 09:46 PM
When I went to a larger kettle the scaling works just fine. My problem was that my larger
kettle was less efficient and I ended up with a couple of sweeter, less bitter batches until I
had my efficien...

I rest mine on the element too. The problem is that too much of the IC is out of the wort so
the efficiency is really reduced.
Posted in thread: Immersion Chiller for electric brewing on 06-29-2015 at 07:56 PM
OK so I went with a larger kettle and now when I brew 'normal' 5 gallon batches my IC is not
efficient at all. The wort level is so low that the majority of the IC is setting in the open
air.So my que...
Posted in thread: Pot dimension advantages / disadvantages - big concern or not? on 06-26-2015 at 06:59 PM
I brew electric and when I bought a larger kettle very little of my IC is submerged when I brew
5 gallon batches. I have to use my smaller kettle for those batches.
