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

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

My stout tanks are setup exactly like that. I have 1 inch Triclamp ferrules for this job.Do you

using my large keezer to cool a ferm chamber.But I saw on Stout's website that they have a

It seems like people are putting a probe on the HERMS outlet from the HLT.There must also be

I have a 14.7 ft3 chest freezer that I purchased for using as a fermentation chamber, but
realized that I could actually put some corny kegs in there at serving temp. I have rigged up
some carboy "coo...
Posted in thread: Best table/stand for electric brewing? on 03-10-2015 at 11:38 AM
For electric, we don't need the holes for burners so its more like a table than a stand, right?
And we don't need to run the gas pipeline, but we do still need to clamp on the pumps, the
