bm612,How's progress? I just mentioned to a friend that I wanted his help to add some
automation pieces to my rig. Could I trouble you to post some pictures at current stage? I'd
love to see the evolu...

What causes blow off tube liquid to be sucked back into the fermenter? I've seen a couple of
posts that mention something about a temperature change causing this and I had it happen this
past winter. ...

Plus 1 to Stealcruiser's comment about galvanized metal. The guys that did mine sanded down all

I would go with the powder coating without hesitating. At less than 100 bucks it's a no

volume per sty...
Posted in thread: Fly sparging with a pump? on 04-09-2014 at 05:58 PM
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
