    I agree that in most cases the pH takes care of itself in a standard mash. You can always tweak
    it to make things better, but that's a marginal improvement. I would pay attentioned to pH and
    water mor...

    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...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Quick fermentation question. on 12-30-2014 at 12:17 AM
    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...
