    ABOUT ME

  • Brewing,Snowboarind,Computer Programming,Traveling,Turntables
  • In early 2011, A friend and I dreamed of one day brewing our own beer. By late 2011 we put our pennies to good use and bought a Ale Pale kit through an online site. Our first brew was done on the side burner of a grill. New and naive to brewing, we forged on to a tasteful Pale Ale. rn rnSince then, we have upgrade to a glass primary carboy, as well as a 5 gallon glass secondary. We have also invested in a outdoor burner and started doing full 5 gallon boils. rnIn the beginning of 2012, I started working on DIY projects. I built a MLT, bought a bigger kettle, built a stir plate and made the jump to all grain. rnHomebrewing is one of my favorite hobbies, I love every detail about it. I love researching and reading on all things from the chemistry of the mash to different DIY projects. I'm always looking for ways to improve my brewing.

    You could try, you would need some sturdy support. Might work.I'd be more worried about half
    the surface area as yours... Possibly leading to a clog.. Yours seems to be covered on both
    sides.

    Okay great info milldoggy, do you think the added surface area from top and bottom would work
    better than attempting a false bottom made from your suggested mesh in brew kettle similar to
    that of a ml...

    Stainless Mesh 28x28 .01 wire size 24"x24" app doesn't show signatures.. finally took a look.
    I like that idea. What, if anything, is the advantage of this over a false bottom? :tank:

    Any word if this holds the 6.5 gallon glass carboys? Kegs overtook my ferm chamber and now I'm
    in need of a new one.

    A work in progress. This is my stand so far.

    Can you move your dip tube inlet to the edge of the kettle? I feel like that it's much easier
    to not draw from close to the pile than to try and filter the pileIn short, yes I could trim my
    dip tube t...

    I have been leaning towards a CF chiller. It seems like less maintenance over a plate chiller.
    I'm more concerned about the whirlpool and diptube at the moment. Even with a CF chiller that
    in theory w...

    Well, I'm coming to the end of my single tier 3 keggle build and now i'm imaging/visualizing a
    brew day and I've come into 2 possible problems, that more or less go hand in hand. My brew
    keggle is equ...

    Besides, you'll find all kinds of things to polish afterwards. More is better.very true went
    ahead and order plenty to get the job done and then some since they're not locally available.
    Wish I would ...

    Love this!What's the over all available height? My original ferm chamber turned into a 4 keg
    fridge so I need to look for another option with summer approaching. Would a 6.5 gallon carboy
    fit with 3 p...
