  • Posted in thread: WLP644 as primary yeast in sour on 07-22-2015 at 09:51 PM
    I'm thinking of brewing a golden sour using WLP644, Trios wild yeast. I love the flavor profile
    of pineapple and mango and think that it would work really well. However, since WLP644 converts
    lactic a...

    Round holes work fine for those :)the flat spot is to help keep the connector indexed
    absolutely, but they don't tend to rotate much once installed.

    I'll add to the put something in between camp. The glue holding it down will probably be your
    biggest issue as it gets soft at temps much lower than what formica will deal with, leading to
    separation ...

    Yeah I figured check valves would be needed. So there would be a tendency for the fluid to flow
    backwards towards the pump? I thought if anything if only one pump was on the flow might cause
    the other...

    I am sure this has been tried or asked before, but I am going to ask anyway. WILL THIS WORK and
    IF NOT, WHY?you'll want a check valve after the pump, or make the return much larger than the
    supply.Oth...

    If you're getting down to 34F, you're doing pretty good.

    Ah, gotcha, that's not unusual then, just means the unit is running a lot. It's condensation
    freezing on all the exposed low temps parts, so anything from the orifice or expansion valve
    all the way ba...

    If it's freezing up, then there isn't enough glycol:water. The coils will run about 15F below
    what the glycol is, unless it's freezing up, in which case it can drop even further.A small
    pump recircula...

    No matter which way you go, the good news is there are now adapter that let you connect between

    Ok, am I reading correctly that you're trying to chill to a final temp of 20F? How quickly do
    you need to get there? How good of insulation do the vessels have?

Hi, been reading threads on a glycol setup for 3bbl plastic fermenters. We are planning on using SS coils inside to regulate temperature. We are interested in your AC setup that is dipped in the glycol reservoir. Any pictures, tips, guides you have come up with would be awesome!

Cheers!
