  • I don't like American light lagers, but when I tried Paulaner Octoberfest, I wondered what made it so different! I kit from the LHBS appeared under the Christmas tree, leading me down the rabbit hole. I now do twin 15 gallon batches in parallel on a 4 burner natural gas rig.

    I bought the Update International 25 gallon kettles that are similar to the older MegaPots,
    about 20 inches wide and 20 inches tall. I have seem to have more boiloff than most guys with

    I use 100 quart coolers as mash tuns for 15 gallon batches in my garage. They might lose a
    degree, or at most 2, in an hour. I do throw an ancient cheap coat or a jacket over them for
    overkill during ...

    I filled my Cornie kegs full of an OxyClean solution, then could not get back to them for a
    couple of weeks, as life took me in different directions. They have a white ring in them, but
    it clears away...

    The first and third links in the original post do not currently work. It's harder to follow

    Bump. Does anyone know of a reason I can't run gas into a manifold from two directions, with
    propane tanks and manifolds at both ends? If there is a problem, please stop me before I buy
    the stuff.

    I have a 4 burner stand with 90k BTU 3 ring burners that I built to use in my old house with 1"
    natural gas pipe to the unit. I moved to the country, and had to switch to propane. I put an RV
    auto cha...

    I can't tell from this how the pump is hooked up when you have the problem. Maybe some pictures
    of the setup as it is in action when the problem occurs? Some more description of the issue
    might help t...

    Do you have any pictures of your setup? It's hard to guess what is going wrong without having a
    better idea about what your system's layout is. More description would help, but pictures would
    be worth...
