I just emailed to get some quotes on one I want to order (thermowell, ball lock post, and pressure relief post) last night and Dale has already emailed me back! I figured they were so busy I'd have to wait a couple days, but I'm happy they were so prompt.

I just ordered mine with a thermowell, They were very paitent and willing to make it work for me. I'm pretty excited, now I have to wait for the lead time (currently 20 business days) but that will give me time to assemble the rest of the parts I need to make it work.

fyi, here is the pump I used for my CIP setup. Lowe's doesn't carry it anymore. I think pretty much anything of 1/3hp to 1/2 hp would work well. I don't know much about corrosion or oil intrusion into the fermentor, so be careful there. I went with this oil free stainless steel version for the highest chemical compatibility with PBW and starsan.

Utilitech 1/2 HP Waterfall Pump

Item #: 41844 | Model #: PPWF33

Presently the Koi pond drain at 10 trouble free years time to switch its duty to the CIP Brewhemoth.
Kally, I must copy your great CIP design the results sure look great thanks for posting.
Do you know the operating range of your spray ball in GPM or operating pressure range?

I saw the link for the more beer racking valve, but where have you guys been finding the triclamp valves for the brewhemoth? I'd like to order and get all of the parts I need before it arrives so I can use it as soon as I get it.

What's the point of a rotating racking arm - you can't tell when you're picking up yeast or trub anyway. Maybe if you had a sight glass mounted above the cone. I had blichmans for years and never felt that the arm helped anything. Even if you had clear tubing, the fast rate of flow would not be able to distinguish between clear beer and clear beer that was slightly picking up sediment. My mo is to make enough that you are guaranteed to get your yield by dumping from a set height. Dumping straight from the rack port on a hemoth seems to be a fine way to go. No rotating arm - skip it.

Awesome, Thanks StMarcos for that tidbit, it'll probably be an issue of price, at least at first. I've got a month or so before I get it, so I'll have some time to shop around. Thanks for the links and info everyone.

Watch ebay for deals. Butterfly valves are tough to find on there at a good price, but I've gotten used elbows, Tees, clamps, and new gaskets pretty cheap.

Most people don't realize it right away, but 1" and 1.5" fittings use the same clamps.
