    I forgot that I started this thread! I suppose I'll give a bit of an update....I acquired a
    large tank (~1000 L) that I use as my cooling water storage. The first several batches I cooled
    with hose wa...

    Thought I'd post an update about this. The system has been working quite well, although some of
    the lines tend to develop gas pockets if left sitting for a long time. This is likely due to
    the differe...

    I agree with poptarts. Also, your big pots (steel? aluminum?) are massive heat sinks and you
    are losing a lot of heat to the surroundings. I'd highly suggest wrapping your MLT in some sort
    of insulati...

    beer itself wi...

    Scorching won't be a concern. Assuming you are using a controller to control the element output

  • Posted in thread: How to dry out Chugger/March pumps on 04-27-2014 at 09:33 PM
    I used to just leave everything assembled, but it was causing mold to grow in the pump head
    between brew sessions.... After that I make it part of the routine to entirely disassemble the
    pump head and...

    Sorry for the slow reply. We haven't been able to really push the system yet with a lot of
    throughput. Next weekend there will be some heavy usage, though. I imagine it will just cause
    the AC to run a...
