SankePanke, that's a great trick morphing your Synergy brewing systems 15.5gallon 60 psi max bier keg fermenter into a Cornelius keg with its pressure ratings. I know a 5 gallon corny wall thickness is only .025" or 23 to 24 gauge thick.

Can you morph me a couple 1967 Honda Civics into 917 Long Tail and Short Tail Porsches for me, i'll take both please.

I see your happy with your purchase as you own a Synergy fermeter,
i'm happy with a Brewhemoth hence I have one, make it a second one in the near future. Prost.

Yikes! Um, I have both. My 15 gal corny is my second fermenter/lager vessel.

I didn't mean to rub anyone the wrong way. Didn't know this was an owners only club. As I mentioned, I'd like to purchase one in the future if I could, but I'm spent for now. I'll take my leave, then. Great job brewhemoth - I knew it was a pressure worthy design.

When we did the water chilling test, I placed 9 gallons of water in a Brehemoth, The coils were 2 inches obove the water line, which in a ten gallon batch, will leave one loop out of the water. Will do a real beer test this weekend, which will have me doing a ten gallon batch (closer to 11 gallons wort, want ten gallons in the kegs at the end, planning on loosing some to trub/yeast dumps and hydrometer samples) so it should be fully submerged. Time will tell. The next one made will be deeper, with more coils, the first was made out of scrap tubing.

My thinking the coils should be fully submerged even after trub and sampling were removed for a 5 gallon net batch.
On larger batches the reason purchased the Brewhemoth it would be great if more coils were added to have the ability to fully remove exothermic heat generated by 18 plus gallon batches. Details make for a great product your onto something great you can make it work.
A three piece zippered jacket, bottom conical, body and top I bet would also help. JMO's.

Well these do look good. Might have to sell off my 14G blichmanns. Oh and I don't think they made civics 'till the 70s....

How does the top port work if you don't get a 4'' tc custom?

In a quick answer, BrewBeemer is right. It is a 4" cap, with gasket, held down by an adjustable clamp. This method will not hold much more than 8 PSI, though...but still works well for standard fermentation.

Check out the website www.brewhemoth.com for a little more detailed picture!

Thanks for checking out our stuff!!

Cheers!
Josh
