I really like his system except for the glass carboys... but i bet it looks cool to see all of those carboys bubbling ...as for me i would sell the carboys and if i wanted small vessels i would use sanke kegs which one sanke is equal to three carboys and no worries of light damage to the brew or broken vessels ...

He is not the manufacture of these. They are made in my town, St. Louis, from recycled liquid oxygen canisters. They are very heavy walled and can handle over 200 PSI. Not that you would ever want to go that high. I have one and love it. You can pressure ferment and transfer directly into your keg with a jumper connection under pressure so that oxygen never comes into contact with your beer. They also have an internal chiller/heater coil for maintaining what ever temp you want. I have used mine from 5 to 20 gallons. I don't know if they can make them bigger, taller, but it would never hurt to ask. I bet they could weld 2 of the cylinder sections together for total volume of 38-40 gallons.

Just out of curiosity are you using two plate chillers in tandem ?

correct res ! summer time gets ugly that's why it's so easy to control de temperature flow and also very stable you don't need to worry the only bad thing is to clean and sanitize both only takes like 20 min to do it.

cheers !!!

I'm still fairly new to brewing so sorry for the newbie question. How do you aerate that much wort when transferring to your carboys?
