    BIAB - Bag vs Basket?

    I am not sure what people would call my process. I would not call it a BIAB but, others might. I don't think the typical BIAB is for me. It cost more in grains to obtain a good efficiency plus I like to sparge my grains... So, a basket designed like Clawhammer (and others), to me, is a waste...

    Time for a New All-In-One Brewing System

    I am thinking about either changing to a Blichmann or replacing the DSPR120 for the newer DSPR320

    If they put a warning sticker on everything toxic, California Politicians would be covered with those warnings...

    Any opinions on the EZ Boil DSPR320?

    Well, I know about electrical, just not much about electronic but, it seems pretty straight forward

    Any opinions on the EZ Boil DSPR320?

    Ok, I have a Unibrau Controller SV220 220v. Could I change out the Auber EZBoil 110 for a DSPR 320?

    Any opinions on the EZ Boil DSPR320?

    How hard is it to change out the DSPR 110/120 to the DSPR 320? is the wiring diagram the same?

    All in one home setup

    I misread your comment..I was thinking you were saying the "hop blocker" was gumming up....I have never had an issue with the "plate chiller" gumming up as long as I use the hop spider and hop blocker regardless of how many hops I use.

    I do use a hop spider along with the hop blocker and dip tube. Yes it can clog/gum up but that is just a testament to how well the hop blocker works. Using a hop spider , in my opinion does not effect the hop utilization as far as I can tell. It is still important to do a good back flush...

    The picture of the Kettle is out of date. The ones they sell now have an additional port. The additional port near the top of the kettle and is directly above the pump port and below the grain basket port. Click the pic>>>>>

    Yes, I have the 10g 220v 5500 watt system and love it. I have 4 brews on it and still finding out new processes since I had a coffee urn (Grainfather) prior. Plus I can talk to the owner at any time....within reason.

    Have you considered the Unibrau V3? It is a modular system so you can make it anyway you want unlike some others. The basket in the Clawhammer was a no go for me. I like to sparge and with Clawhammer's grain basket I did not see a realistic way to sparge. I have the 10 Gallon 220V 5500w system...

    Pinhole in corny, can i silver solder it?

    A few moments after I posted that I thought to myself that there is a Tinless Solder.... also need to watch and make sure there is no lead in the solder...Thanks for your reply.

    Pinhole in corny, can i silver solder it?

    It is my understanding that Solder contains Tin... and Tin kills yeast. Not sure it matters that much with just a pin hole... but, just saying.

    Whats the Weirdest Flavor (or Ingredient) you have brewed with

    I went in my back yard and picked out a bunch of Dandelions and Pine Needles... Wasn't to bad.
