Definitely find another way to get the hop bitterness into the beer, like boiling a small
portion with hops separately. Be prepared for higher than expected attenuation. Don't fight the
haze. Rather, ...

Not a solution, but perhaps try a small bit of polymer clarifying agent in a pint sample to see
if that helps the sample. It might help you learn something as to the cause. The most important

Keep in mind that GFI does not work by sensing current to the ground. They work by sensing if
there's any current difference between the current-carrying wires.

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.

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.
