    Brew stand build. Couple of questions and advice needed

    Am aware of banjo burner. Picture attached. Some minimal rusting nothing 1 hr of sanding and respraying wouldnt renew. Most of the **** you see is burnt on wort from ******* boilovers

    Brew stand build. Couple of questions and advice needed

    I did not pay for powder coating. I just used spray paint have been more than happy with 60+ hours of flame. That being said it is a HERMS and the only thing I am flaming for the most part is the boil kettle. I will take pics if you want to see them.

    Rys06Tbss I hope you and yours are in a better if only slightly better place than in December. @Gadjobrinus I can only say my experience has been very good with little to no rusting with the mild steel COATED with paint. Not sure why you wouldn't consider a coating? I just used high...

    Best Heady Topper Clone Kit?

    Its resin. It will end up all over anything that wort touches after you add it. It was over just about every inch of my boil keggle. I had to really get in there with isopropyl to get it out. Oxyclean soak did nothing.

    Best Heady Topper Clone Kit?

    I brewed the NB clone. It was OK not great. Probably my fault. I will say that I will never use hop extract again. That stuff is a major pain in the a$$ to clean up.

    Brew stand build. Couple of questions and advice needed

    I built mine with 1.5 inch mild steel. I dont think 1/8 inch is overkill. Also shop around locally. I did not think I had a supplier until a I really looked. It was a 45 minute drive but worth it. It is way cheaper than ordering online... one of the few times that'll happen. I think I paid...

    IME. Have never tasted acetaldehyde after hitting final gravity.

    That wouldn't give off flavors.

    Did you make a starter or pitch "100 billion cells" into 5 gallons of 1.050. If you did not make a starter you under-pitched by a ballpark 250 billion cells (assuming your yeast pack was brand new). S04 11.5 gram pack would be about perfect

    I hope that is a frozen turkey for a 14 hour cook.

    Pure RO Water (without additives)

    I don't mean to hijack but I have a quick question. I have an apec 3 gallon RO system that I use and start filling 2 days ahead of time. The drum with float valve seems like it might have to get installed here. Are you gravity feeding out of the drum? Is the drum open or have an air...

    HELP Foaming nightmare!!! beer tower dispensing soda

    All sounds pretty good. Two things I would try: 1. Turn your regulator down to about 12psi. If that solves it then you need a longer beer line to serve at 22psi. Edit: Also equalize your kegs so that they are 12psi. 2. Do another keg full of water and let it come to your kegerator...
