    Been thinking about this some more today and think that my best course of action is going to be
    to cut some holes in the top of the 5gal cooler and let the connectors poke through. This will

    Totally get that I am not being cost efficient, but there is something idealistic about wanting
    to have beer pour out of a tap while having the smallest, most attractive/hidden solution that
    can serve...

    I would like to maximize portability thus smaller is better. Cornies are round so the most
    efficient vessel is also round.I have a 5gal round orange igloo that is 17" high inside height,
    but the lid e...

    Anyone have a greenlee punch 13/16" that they are willing to lend or rent? Seems crazy to shell
    out that much cash for that little use...just punching a few holes.I would obviously cover
    shipping in b...

  • Posted in thread: Relative vessel size on 04-02-2015 at 01:31 PM
    I have seen the sticky thread about MLT sizing, but what do folks think about the relative
    sizing of all the vessels including fermenter?HLT has to heat up two different sets of water:
    strike and spar...

    It's actually good to aerate the wort prior to pitching yeast. It's after fermentation has
    started that you do not want aerate the wort, this will cause oxidation.I think he was
    indicating that he aer...

    I know this is a bit of a DIY cop-out, but I think I am just going to go with a fermwrap and a
    fridge/freezer off of craigslist that is big enough to hold the conical. Seems to be the
    simplest and mos...

    @ajdelange Thanks so much for that explation. It seems you are focusing on the equations for
    cooling speed.My use case is much more about wanting to remain at constant temp despite high
    ambient temp. ...

    My stout tanks are setup exactly like that. I have 1 inch Triclamp ferrules for this job.Do you
    have to disconnect every time in order to drain the coil? For the Stout HLT with HERMS looks
    like both o...

    I have been thinking about getting a conical fermenter and so recently asked a question about
    using my large keezer to cool a ferm chamber.But I saw on Stout's website that they have a
    peltier approac...
