    So, on the outside of the cooler, it would just be the flat sided nut (almost like a nut with a
    washer attached) against the cooler wall, no o-ring? Thanks.I recently installed the same
    bulkhead fitti...

  • Posted in thread: Putting 13/16" Holes in My Kettles - What's the Best Option? on 01-30-2017 at 04:29 PM
    So for Christmas I got two very nice 16 gallon kettles, and now I'd like to ruin them by
    putting a 13/16" hole in each :rockin:I will be using hand tools to do this, and looking at my
    options, I think...

    I mounted the pump on the same shelf the kettle rests on, just off to one side about 18 inches.
    As long as the pump inlet is on the bottom, the kettle outlet will be high enough to gravity
    prime the p...

    Say that you are paying attention to the pH. You mash in and test and realize you need to make
    an adjustment. I've heard from multiple places that most of the conversion happens really
    quickly, so wha...

    Thank you again A.J., I seem to have it. I had confused the 40 g of malt used in the test mash,
    with the 40 mEq of acid needed to lower 1 kg of malt by 1.0 pH unit. The two are completely
    separate. I ...

    If you add 1 cc of 88% lactic acid to 100 mL of DI or RO water you will have a solution that is
    pretty close to 0.1 N so you would use 1.6 mL of that in order to get 0.16 mEq.Add that acid to
    the mash...

    Hi all, I've made a couple of beer batches so far (so still a noob), and all of them have been
    kegged. However, I had a bad foaming problem so I decided to change my 5' lines out for 10'
    lines. I curr...

    I have always boiled wort made with Pilsner malt for 90 minutes. Pretty much because a 90
    minute boil was something someone somewhere had recommended a while ago. The extra 30 minute
    boil did not dark...

    Anyone have any advice or experience to set me straight.I brewed a Scottish Wee Heavy 2 years
    ago and have been aging it in a refrigerator ever since. This beer was super sweet when we
    first sampled i...

    For what size batch? Surely not 5 gallons,.Sorry about my math error. For a 5 gallon batch it
    should be 2.5 ounces of hops, added with 60 minutes remaining to the boil.
