    Crushing grains with Corona mill

    I agree. I’ve been using my corona mill for a decade and love it. But def you need a tighter crush but as previous poster warned you take it to far and you’ll get a stuck sparge for sure which isn’t the end of the world but just a headache to deal with. Enjoy!

    HLT build help

    I think I’m just gonna use a general all purpose inkbird to send a relay to a contactor to turn on and off the 2000W element. I like the controller above but it doesn’t look like it will give me the output I need to run the element I want. I have a 20 amp line with a gfci outlet I plan to use. I...

    HLT build help

    But I could use a double pole now only using one pole and have it for later when I get my 240 volt Run For a future EBK and use it in the same manner right?

    HLT build help

    Guys thanks you so much. And you can’t offend me. I don’t have time to be offended when I could be learning from someone wiser then me and I’m most definitely a novice and not afraid to admit the fact. Okay so the plan is to use my existing inkbird and scavenge an old extension cord to wire into...

    HLT build help

    A two or three degree variance would be acceptable me. I’m familiar with how the inkbird works as I’ve been able to experiment with it with my full size (top/bottom) refrigerator fermentation chamber. Ideally I’d end up insulating my HLT at a later date once I know the project is reliable. A...

    HLT build help

    Also, I’m thinking this contractor may be a better choice then the relay. Packard - DP301202 C230B 2 Pole 30 Amp Contactor, 120 Voltage Coil https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001KGSJ74/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabt1_wbOUFbAN12CDF?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

    HLT build help

    I have an inkbird itc308 but I’m thinking of purchasing a dedicated inkbird itc1000 to dedicate to this purpose as my 308 runs my fermentation chamber mostly. Trying not to collect even more brewing gear than I already have, so my wife can’t say “I thought you said you wouldn’t ever need...

    HLT build help

    Could you explain what is less than optimal about my design? I’m not being defensive honestly just wanting to learn more about electric systems.

    HLT build help

    I am trying to design and build an electrically fired HLT that will run off an inkbird temp controller. My idea is to design and build an HLT minus the HERMS coil as laid out on the electricbrewery website, except using a 120V/2000W element. Can I build my HLT as described on there only using a...

    Nylon T fitting

    I didn’t bother to look. I ended up going to the beer store so just snagged a stainless.

    Carbonation issue

    HELP! I’m serving a keg of hard seltzer now and the co2 keeps coming out of solution when I pour! Can anyone help me fix this issue? I carbed the keg much higher (I’ll check my notes) and extended the line to I think 12 feet and am in the process of being able to serve at higher psi (like 25...

    Nylon T fitting

    Planning to add this upstream of an inline pressure valve so I can serve hard seltzer at in pressure and three taps of beer at another. Thanks for all the help.

    Nylon T fitting

    Hey guys will it work to use a nylon t fitting from the hardware store to use in my co2 system? Amid the current situation it’s all I could get in a timely manner. I plan to replace with stainless down the line but amidst the pandemic I’m running out of things to do and tidying up the lines and...
