    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...

  • Posted in thread: Aeration? on 03-30-2015 at 02:20 PM
    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. ...

  • Posted in thread: Tri clover fittings installed on HERM's coil on 03-23-2015 at 02:25 AM
    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...

  • Posted in thread: Peltier vs. Fermwrap vs. chamber vs. Giycol on 03-20-2015 at 03:42 PM
    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...

  • Posted in thread: HERMS thermoprobe placement on 03-17-2015 at 02:02 PM
    It seems like people are putting a probe on the HERMS outlet from the HLT.There must also be
    one in the HLT itself.So, I am guessing that the mash recirc logic is:[*]keep pump on at all
    times[*]turn o...

    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
    water filter,...
