  • Posted in thread: My take on the keg/carboy/beer line/growler washer on 04-10-2014 at 08:32 PM
    This is a great build and well thought out. I love the fact you pretty much covered all your
    cleaning scenarios. I built a washing system but I put the pump in a separate box with a
    heating element. I...

    I made my rig a bit taller, it's 31 inches on the low side. I put 5" casters on it because I
    wanted smooth rolling. The inlet to the pumps is +/- 10" off the ground which has proven to
    give me enough ...

    sloanfamilydsm - The water and grains would fall out? hu?The lids I use for the HTL and BK are
    simply the cut-out from cutting off the top of the keg.

    I echo "Hophop's" comment. I generally carb a new keg at +/- 20 PSI for 4 or 5 days then drop
    to 8 to 10 PSI for duration of keg. (This doesn't take into consideration the amount of Co2
    volume per sty...

    I set up my rig generally as you've described. I have the HLT up high and the MLT and BK on the
    same level. I fly sparge with a Chugger pump through a HERMS coil within the HLT. Once I get a
    flow goin...

    Here are some images of the rig I built. My main goal was to have on board storage and as much
    as possible in one place. After many many hours of research on this forum, and others, this is
    the final ...

  • Posted in thread: Boiling fly-sparge water? on 10-25-2013 at 06:17 PM
    At Mash out I Vorlauf for 10 minutes through my HLT embedded Herms coil. The HLT water
    continues to heat since I drew off my strike water and is usually at 180+ at this point. I try
    to lauter for 30 m...

  • Posted in thread: DIY Rotating Sparge Arm?? on 10-24-2013 at 10:38 PM
    I almost went down the rotating arm build but decided on simplicity. I figured pointing the
    holes up would prevent channels from formaing. The only drawback in this design so far is if I
    open the pump...

    I mounted mine with the output up and don't have priming issues.
