    Should have went with TC endcaps so you could pull the ends and clean the tubes to be 100% sure
    they are clear like most shell & tube exchangers are setup. Would have also removed threads on
    the cold ...

    Run some dry grain through it or go at them with a nylon scrub brush. I usually save a pound or
    two of my grain bill to run through after the conditioned stuff to clear the rollers.

    Has Blichmann had this assembly pressure tested and certified or are they assuming that the keg

  • Posted in thread: What size cooler for gylcol reservoir on 10-05-2016 at 07:36 PM
    Not controlling the suction directly, just changing the control temp for the liquid line
    solenoid. I've got plenty of capacity for what I need even when crashing so based on calc'd
    numbers and real li...

    The condensing unit that I have puts out just shy of 4000 btu(1/3 ton) when I'm running it at a
    15* suction for crash cooling. Normally when it's running at 45* suction I have over 7000 btu

    My plan is to educate our two early so they appreciate quality food and drink. Once they get to

    unadvisable. If you want crabby beer they carry on!

    it's stainless(or aluminum), which as far as i know aren't very good at absorbing things, so go
    for it. I've done lobsters and clams many times and besides a through cleaning, have had no

  • Posted in thread: Glycol pump on 08-11-2016 at 03:50 PM
    I started with a bare condensing unit and piped it to a brazed plate heat exchanger. The pump
    is a Little Giant 4 series and is relatively quiet, but I'm used to having a pump and
