  • Posted in thread: Any idea what my tare weight is? on 02-06-2017 at 03:22 PM
    I'm assuming you look at all of the tank, but is that all the stampings on the tank? Usually
    there is a TW## where the ## is the tank weight. Maybe take a wire brush to the top and see if
    the original...

    We've been to all of the Rochester breweries with our two kids from birth to 3.5 years now and
    never had issues. Half the rochester ones are guys who are homebrewers and stepped up to where
    they are n...

    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

  • 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

  • Posted in thread: Getting your kids involved as "assistant brewers" on 09-12-2016 at 05:21 PM
    My plan is to educate our two early so they appreciate quality food and drink. Once they get to
    college they will have developed a palate such that they avoid BMC and the like. Once they
    realize they ...

    Ha, you're right. Edit prior response to be unless you want crab flavored beer then this may be
    unadvisable. If you want crabby beer they carry on!
