OK so im getting together a parts list and pricing for outfitting my kegs. This will be a single tier build, herms build. Right now im just working on the fittings for the kegs. Here is my list so far:
(HLT, Mashtun) Sight glass with thermometer - http://www.brewhardware.com/index.ph...dess&Itemid=60
x2 - $45 each
(Brew Kettle) Sight glass no thermometer - http://brewhardware.com/index.php?op...dess&Itemid=60
x1 - $27
(HLT, Brew Kettle) 2 x Bulk head with 3 piece ball, standard NPT, 1/2 to 1/2 nipple - http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...product_id=167
(Brew Kettle) whirlpool side pickup - http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...product_id=151
(HLT) center pickup - http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...&product_id=94
(Mash Tun) false bottom with center pickup - http://www.norcalbrewingsolutions.co...roduct181.html
Im not sure what i need for the heat exchanger. i know ill need another ball valve, the copper for the heat exchanger (what size tubing?), another unknown fitting at the top and another ball valve for the output.
For the mashtun, with a herms setup should i batch sparge or fly sparge? I don't really know anything about fly sparging. opinions? equipment needed?
anything im missing? any insight would be great!
