Home Depot does have 3/16" vinyl tubing, and I've used it before in a pinch. The stuff I got was much thinner-walled than the beer line you'll get from your LHBS.

Is it full of sediment/minerals that came from the water supply? You realize that means the tank is actually filtering those things out, right?

$10-14 is pretty standard around here; I know of one place that does $8 on Sundays. The best deal in town might be Hair of the Dog, which fills a growler for 15 bucks - these are 10-12% beers like...

Depending on the recipe, what you're making may actually be closer to a Baltic Porter. If you want to post your ingredients we could help figure it out.:mug:

If you didn't replace all the o-rings when you got it, do it (don't even bother inspecting them). They'll hold onto nasty soda smells/tastes and other funk that's impossible to get out. A full set of...

I have the Bayou SQ14 and it's been great - zero complaints. I guess it could be quieter, but it heats wort fast and is a third of the price of a Blichmann.

Just swap it out for 3/16" hose and I'm guessing it will be about right. You can fit 3/16" hose on a 1/4" tailpiece without a problem (just warm it up with a bit of hot water first).

FWIW, I use...

Are you using a hydrometer or refractometer to take your readings? If the latter, are you doing the required correction?

Are you making yeast starters?

- Add ~2oz...
