So I've decided to upgrade my AG brewery and build a single tier herms system. I'm leaning toward buying BK, MLT, and HLT from www.conical-fermenter.com
and use their HLT with HERMS coil. Their vessels come with all tri-clover sanitary fittings and clamps which I think is a big plus.
I'm going to go with two pumps so I can fly sparge.
As I plan this out and look at how my brew day process will work on this setup, it's apparent that I'll be disconnecting hoses and reconecting them to different places to switch from Mash to Sparge and from boil/whilpool to chill and transfer to fermenter. Heres my question:
Is it problematic to have to disconnect and re-connect tri-clovers? Do you have much spilliage when you do?
Quick connects seem like they would be cleaner but I like the idea of the sanitary clamp setup. I haven't bought anything yet so I'm just planning at this point.
Any input is appreciated.
