Exactly.

Just for the record, I do not work for Five Star Chemicals but I just wanted to report that I LOOOOOVE Liquid Circulation Cleaner #1 for my CIP solution. This caustic doesn't foam and does an amazing job of cleaning up the Brewhemoth. Even the crustiest of krausens! Seek this stuff out if you are doing a CIP!

Thanks for the info. I was going to need to find a good CIP cleaner that does not foam to much. I too love the 5-Star products.

Regular old caustic works for me. Mixed 2.5% w/v.

Well, add me to the list. I just bought the TC version with chiller.

Now I've got a shopping list of another $200 in TC fittings, thermowell and valves over at Brewershardware. Take that, failing economy!

Guys, i am going to be ordering the triclover brewhemoth in the next few days. I am going to add a triclover ferrule to the front for a thermometer..... Is there anything else that you would recommend? Is there anything that you wish you had customized a bit?

Don't get the ferrule in my opinion. Just one more weld to worry about. Get a "t" on top and put a thermowell on top.

I'm not worried about the welds... these guys know what they're doing. The T with thermowell is a good idea, but I have grown accustomed to having the dial thermometer on the front.
