HI All, After two hours of reading I did not find the answer to a questions I have. Can you really ferment 20 gallons in one of these Brewhemoths? I read mentions of people doing it but none of them made mention to how it went and if that is how they do it on a rewgular basis.

Can someone chime in that regularly ferments 20 gallons on these and let me know how it works for them?

Thanks!

I have done 18 gallons repeatedly with no blow off. 2 more gallons should not be an issue.

I might start digging through the thread anyways, but since it's gotten so long:

Thanks StMarcos. Damn, I was looking at 1/4-1/3 hp pumps. Glad I asked first!

Maybe lesser hp would work. I started with a stpats stainless spinner and a 1/4hp pump, and it wouldn't spin. Kept returning the pumps for bigger ones 'till I got to 1hp, and it still didn't spin. Then swapped the stpats spinner for the mcmaster one, and it works well.

I use a 1 HP pump and a spray ball from brewers hardware and it takes all of the crud off.

I had a friend weld a SS threaded pipe in a 4" cap that had a hole drilled in it. Now they have this already done.

I let it clean for about 30 minutes, then a 5-10 minute rinse, then 5 minute sanitize.

Some where on this forum (I thought it was in this thread but can't find the post) someone reported using a pump in the 1/4 to 1/2 hp range (I think) with great results. I think they used smaller tubing to make up for the lack of hp on a brewershardware.com spray ball.

I wish I could find it because it is tax refund time!

Yeah I'm using the Brewer's Hardware CIP ball as well.

Looks like a great deal compared to what I've seen. Thanks!
