I don't see any reason why you couldn't replicate exactly what I did with a hopper from Toledo
Metal Spinning. BTW, the tun is still working very well, and there is no sign of anything
wearing or othe...

I'm not trying to figure out my chilling needs. I'm trying to figure out the peak power density
of the fermentation so I can figure out the shortest time the compressor will likely be off.

thebrewingnetwork.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=20602This one's saying about 3x the rate I
used above, or about 1w/L.

If I use your numbers, 32btu/hr is about 10w. What I really need to know is what the peak could
likely be.17gal ~ 65L ~ 65kgbeer ~ water ~ 4kJ/kgK1degF ~0.5KSo about 130kJ to bring 17gal beer

I'm trying to get a ballpark range for fermentation metabolic power as a function of
temperature. Of course it will depend on many factors, such as nutrient levels, sugar levels,
etc. I'm considering ...

My bev air doesn't, and I'd guess they are pretty similar. You could always take the panel off
the back and check to see if there are any lines heading up into the walls.

You should call it the Ralph Waldo Emersion Chiller

My dentist always uses NO for his porters. I figure it's good for a laugh....

In addition to cheese, how about some cured meats? In many ways meat curing is easier than
cheese. Certainly a lot less delicate. Try a coppa!

Sounds fine although I wouldn't feel the need to wait so long to add the last hops. 180degF is
above the 'sanitary' threshold for brewing beer.
