I started from scratch to day. No QDs, just hose barbs. That worked so in with the QDs. That

Into the kettle?? That wouldn't be steam it has to be water. We need some pictures and maybe

If there is no air leakage you are flashing the water/beer into steam somehow through a
pressure drop.I see air bubbles coming from the Blichmann-kettle. I use 10mm ID hoses,
throttling the output val...

I wrecked my pump so I stowed it all away waiting for a new SS head before I took any pics.

How about just using it as your brewery-laptop? You could get a cheap screen and mount that on
the wall, and make some kind of stand to hold the laptop. Recipes, youtube-videos, music,
streaming a gam...
