    Adroit Theory

    👋 everyone. I do not frequent this forum much at all since I have moved to pro brewing however I learned quite a bit from here before making the step into the industry in 2014. Started as the Assistant at Adroit and became Head Brewer around 2016. I will try and answer some of your questions...

    Effects of Prepping Water 1 Day in Advance

    Only issue I can think of would be with lactic acid. Pretty sure you are supposed to add after grain has been added...... this may or may not make sense. I'm on my 8th day of being severely sick

    Do you need a 1 off Stainless part built for your system? Let's discuss it.

    Jay, I took a glance at your site and did not see them but do you sell or have a source for casks? I work at a brewery and one of the biggest pita is getting muslin bags out of that tiny opening. Could you either source a cask or could one send one they already own and have a 4" tc ferrule...

    Looking to upgrade from glass carboy for fermentation

    My point is you said people that ferment in non translucent fermentors just transfer in and wait two weeks and assume its done. As I said in my last post I get that its cool to see what happens during active fermentation.... to me I read it as I am doing more to control the process because I...

    Looking to upgrade from glass carboy for fermentation

    People that use stainless or fermentation vessels that aren't clear use hydrometer readings to find out when fermentation has finished..... you should be doing this even when using clear fermentors. I get that it's cool to see what's happening but that's about where it ends. I don't have to...

    Theorizing: Cutting brew day time by using a Tankless Water Heater

    I have a tankless hot water heater like in your original post that I plan on using soon. I'll report back in a few weeks when I get around to using it.

    Update on one of our own going pro. Man Skirt!

    Glad to hear! I had been wondering what you have been up to. We just received our 10bbl brew house and conicals last week. Spent today passivating and ciping some of them and will continue tomorrow. Keep up the good work brother!

    Ss BrewTech Chronical + Pump Cart = Ultimate CIP

    I'd be taking off those weldless fittings every 3 or 4 batches and do a deep clean personally. Cip pumps are nice though. I'll be buying a vfd pump in the next month or so for my conicals.

    Cold Plate Jockey Box Foaming like a MF'er

    Buy coils and you don't have to keep the beer cold. I have a 95 qt pelican cooler with two 125' coils (over kill most of the time) and can serve ambient air temperature beer in the heat of the summer with zero foaming issues. Only real downside to coils is how big they are.

    Starsan + Sprayball?

    Use either saniclean (low foaming) or peracetic acid (non foaming) You need to be extremely cautious when handling and using peracetic though. And to answer your question yes using starsan can cause cavitation problems with your pump.

    Creature Comforts Tropicalia Clone

    Agreed. A pound is wayyyy to much. Anyone know if Creature comforts is on a direct fire system or do they have a boiler? Edited to add: I forgot how dark tropicalia is. A pound is still too much but as Heath mentioned start with a half pound or a bit less.

    I'm Highly Interested in Going Pro

    Awesome dude! I am a brewer at Adroit. Our 10bbl arrived in the port of Baltimore this morning. Sorry for the thread hijack.
