Posted in thread: Brewometer kickstarter thoughts - digital bluetooth hydrometer on 04-18-2016 at 03:45 PM
I probably would have bought two if there was a 2 pack discount. I asked if they were planning
anything and they responded promptly that they didn't. I have no issues with that stance and
think the pe...
Posted in thread: The Best Wort Chiller on 04-09-2016 at 03:25 AM
I wish I knew that legs were an option. I just got a king cobra. Works great, but I'm currently
balancing it on my pickup tube and element. I highly recommend these chillers though.

I'm pretty interested in it, but it would be good to hear how it does during a couple
fermentations and when you're getting blow off.
Posted in thread: Keezer w/ tower on wheels? PITA or the solution on 01-02-2015 at 06:01 AM
I keep a piece of pvc pipe in the keezer to keep it ajar. It may be easier to have a lid that
opens without being attached to the taps, but I don't think it's a big deal. The biggest pain
for me is go...

I have a 15 cuft freezer on 6 casters with a 10 tap tower on top. It's on tile and it's no
issue to pull it out a few inches to open it up. I haven't noticed any sloshing or getting a
cloudy pint afte...

It typically is clearer. If you tasted it going into secondary and it tasted good then I
wouldn't worry about it. Did you take any gravity measurements? If it's finished and there
isn't any diacetyl t...
Posted in thread: Flow rate using HERMs on 12-28-2014 at 08:56 PM
I use full flow unless there is noticeable pressure drop across the false bottom. I use a
Blichmann mash tun and on most batches it handles the mash without any issues. Sometimes with a
lot of rye or ...

Welcome to the forum. The forum is great for reading up on brewing. Defalcos is great for
information as was mention. There are are also plenty of homebrew clubs in the area as well.
The most importan...

BayerischBier, there is a pdf showing the config for various steps if you go to the BrewPi
GitHub site. I was planning on having more 3way valves myself, but I stuck with 2 way valves
except for one i...

The diagram looks good. On first glance, it does look like you have more valves than you need,
but if you have them it doesn't hurt. An example is valve 5 and 11... both could stop flow on
that leg. 3...
