Posted in thread: Keezer w/ tower on wheels? PITA or the solution on 01-02-2015 at 05:01 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 07:56 PM

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...

but if you have them it doesn't hurt. An example is valve 5 and 11... both could stop flow on
that leg. 3...

I just saw this thread. It's good to see other Pearland brewers around.

This looks great. I'll be setting up a beaglebone or put to test this over the weekend. Is
there a capability to setup profiles for which pumps/valves are on and off? For example...

This news was unfortunate. I've been using BrewTroller for years and was looking forward to
software updates to make it more flexible for the use of the valves I just setup as well as
