Default New Brewhemoth conicals!

I went to order that Brewhemoth I have been eyeing for some time and what do you know, they have updated the site with some new configurations!

I just picked up the all tri clover conical for 454.99. What a steal!!!

http://brewhemoth.com/tri-clover-brewhemoth

They are also offering the immersion chiller for another $159 available with a brewhemoth or separately.

Mine is going in a freezer so I passed on that option.

UPS delivered my Brewhemoth yesterday! Mine is a "hybrid". I have 4" and 1" Tri-clover fittings on top and a 1 1/4" ss dump valve and 1/2" ss racking valve. This thing is a tank! Very nice welds. Very smooth inside.

I'm curious how exactly does the chiller work? Is it just used to cool the wort down to pitching temps?

No, it's to maintain plus lower the temps inside the ferm which was tested before becoming available.

So you just run cold water through it to keep the wort at lower ferm temp. How do you keep it at a specific and constant temp?

Not in the side wall. I will be using the 1 inch tri clover on top to rig up my thermowell. I will be keeping mine in a fridge and will use a ranco + thermowell to regulate temps.

Here is what I plan:


Brewers hardware also carries a 20 inch tri clover thermowell. It would cost a little more, but would look pretty nice.

Hmmm, thinking about this some more and why not place the tri clover thermowell directly onto the 1 inch TC fitting. Then just buy a second 4 inch tri clover cap and drill it and place a gasket in it for the airlock?

You would get the thermowell further down into the fermenter and you would save some $

I like it...
