Designed a CIP system, just need to find a pump strong enough to power it.

I'm trying to do the same thing. A 5G bucket fits under the bottom TC perfectly... 1/4hp sump pump isn't spinning my spinner....

All of the positive feedback makes me very interested in ordering one of these, but I have a couple of questions first, and I didn't see an answer while skimming through a couple of these threads. First, what does the interior of this fermenter look like? any issues? What kind of stainless steel is it? Right now I'm trapped in an apartment (for probably about another year) and can only do 5 gallon batches, and even after an upgrade when I get a house would really only be interested in doing 10 gallon batches. What issues would I need to look out for? Would this really be the right frementer for me, or should I look for a 15 gallon one?

Ok,ok, I suck. I'm just as bad as everyone else who just skips to the end of a post and asks questions. I just scrolled back a couple of pages and found most of the answers to the questions I asked. I think I'll send them an email to ask a few more technical specs. When you guys had them customize and add things did they have the parts, or did you need to send them to the manufacturer? I'd love to have one with a thermowell that o can put a thermometer in.

Just wanted let folks now that Moorebeers Racking Arm fits well in the Brewhemoth.

For some reason you can't find it on their website. But google finds it...and you can order it.

https://morebeer.com/view_product/10826

BTW Just received my brewhemoth and I think I am going to love it.

Fits great in my freezer.

Nice! Thanks for the info... I looked for one of those racking arms with the valve but I didn't google it so I ended up with a butterfly valve which flows a little too fast when opened. I'm going to do a few more brews with it that way and see if I end up liking it, but its good to know this option is out there as well.

FYI the B3 yeast harvester obviously fits since you have the TC bottom valve if you were interested in it.

A CIP design as was posted by another HBT member, can't think of his name at the moment. It's posted on the Brewhemoth forum one super clean system with a spray ball and large pump that kicks butt.

Did Kally ever do a write up of his CIP build, or is there another one that he inspired him?

Just thinking about putting something together, so if anyone knows a link to a good abuild, please share. Looks like I'll be well off with a 1/2 hp pump. I would like the ability to clean kegs and carboys as well.

Thanks!
