    Spike Complete System

    I might even just buy some extra quick-connects and hose so I can keep the MT and HLT ones as short as possible. I waste enough money on other needless ****, why stop now!

    Spike Complete System

    I know Spike says to cut hoses in certain lengths and all but why not cut them even shorter to fit tighter once the system is set up? Eliminate extra hose travel??

    Spike Complete System

    that exactly how I had mine set up on my old system. any worries about it being 'front-heavy'? mine was certainly that way on my 15G gas fired. 20G electric arrives today!

    Spike Complete System

    any of you guys incorporate a sight-glass into the system? Curious where you installed it. Commonsense says on the MT return port but possibly worried about adding weight up there. Was also thinking on the pump inlet/outlet??

    you using a temp probe in the mash to compare it to the mash temp on the PID to get the differential?

    Spike Complete System

    So are you guys raising the temp on the Mash PID 3 degrees higher to compensate for heat loss through all the hoses? thought I remember hearing something about that a long while ago.

    Just picked up the 20G trio+, hoping to have it all set up soon. Great data in this thread. Now the joy of adjusting all the recipes to fit this and trying to build an equipment profile.

    Metallic and bitter taste - SS Brew Bucket, Star San and oxydation

    I believe its from lack of adequate cleaning initially. some of these nice shiny things we get are dirty as hell even when they "look" clean.

    New equipment overhall suggestions

    I as well recommend the SS Brew Buckets. I've also recently added the Blichmann RipTide pump and absolutely love it. Super quiet and easy to use. Cleans well too. Exchillerator is also a nice piece of equipment.

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    BTW, my recipe in post #6570 just won Silver in NEIPA and went on to mini-BOS in an all-category IPA contest. I lost Gold to the eventual BOS winner.

    New England IPA "Northeast" style IPA

    Just brewed this version a couple weeks back and by far my favorite to date. It is a total juice bomb so to add some dankness I'd move some the Whirlpool as a F.O. 6.75% ABV 37.5% 2-Row 37.5% Pilsner 12.5% Flaked Wheat 12.5% Flaked Oats 3oz Citra @ 165F for 30 minute whirlpool 3oz Mosaic...
