Posted in thread: Inline filter for pure oxygen? on 11-08-2014 at 01:26 AM
Been using those disposable bottles of oxygen with no filter for well over 100 batches. No
issues at all.

I thought that may be the case as well, but I cleaned it very well after the brew day. And this
latest test I was sure to make sure. And from what I've read, it's difficult to scorch all
grain, so som...

More babbling you ask? Well I shall oblige. Finished some testing and I really do think it's

Glad you rechecked it. Another possibility, then, is air flow in your brewing space while it
was boiling. Is it possible there was enough wind that the flames would be less on the windward
side and mo...

The burner is spot on. No problems there at all. I was making sure of that throughout the day
to make sure it was ok since the boil looked a little weird that day. Seemed to be a bit more
roll on that...

The only thing that changed was the use of the heat shield. While I can appreciate the
intention of its use, and it does keep the sight glass from boiling (nice but not really
necessary), I think I'm ...
