    Ozone sanitation

    Has anyone gone as far to use ozone as a cheap and very effective sanititizer? A lot of breweries are starting to move this direction.

    Question for process engineers

    So I'm using my IRIMS set up, I tuned my PID closed loop to a flow of 1gpm and 22lbs of grain at 1.5 ratio. Loop works great, but as expected, with more grain, like 25 lbs it tends to overshoot. Is there a simple tweak to one of the constants to get it closer, or should I add another PID...

    O2 saturation question

    When using 100% O2 in our 70f wort, why worry about over oxygenation when you can only get 9ppm in 70f water at saturation? Higher SG would raise the saturation level right? So as I can see it, it would be very hard to over oxygenate wort. Am I off here?

    Poll: Blichmann 7G Conical Extender

    I have a company that is making me 2 extenders for the 7G Blichmann Conical to make it a 14G Conical. I know Blichmann makes them for all the other sizes but failed to do so on the 7G conicals. I have moved to 10G batches and this seems like the way to go. I will post updates and pricing. I just...

    Heat exchanger

    I have a large heat exchanger. It will only knock down 75-100f with 50-60f city water. It's a two pass tube and shell. 1/2 triclamp on the wort side and 1" on the cw side. Would make a nice trim chiller for a brewery or a home brewer using glycol. All 316 stainless. Rather you pickup in the...

    RO water and kmeta

    Would it hurt to use kmeta in RO? Just in case the carbon isnt getting all the chloramine? It should be driven off by the recirc on my HLT right? If not the boil? Thanks

    Grain bed drainage and ph

    So I did a Saison, 22lbs Pilsner and 2oz of chocolate rye for color. My mash ph was in the low 5.0-5.1. Usually I can get 1gpm plus to recirculate though the bed (HERMS) with Pilsner malt (same sack). This mash was at the same temp, same ratio, just ph and the rye are different. So could a...

    Mash issue

    So I'm doing a saison, 22lbs Wey Pilsner, 2oz Wey Choco Rye for a little color. I usually recirc at 1gpm, this guy was at .3gpm max. Could that little rye cause this, it's only 2oz. Now my mash ph was somewhat low, 5-5.1 Thanks

    Duda chillers

    I'm getting a 60 plate chiller from Duda, anyone have any issues with them? Hopefully with the pulsing of my CIP pneumatic diaphragm pump will help clear any debris, just wish they made plate and frame chillers smaller and within budget, I so like to be able to take them apart for cleaning.

    CIP system

    Built with stuff I had laying around the house. This system has a diaphram pump that I'm allowing it to put out 50psi to a rotating spray ball. It has a 1500w inline heater taken from a dishwasher. The two 3 way valves will allow me to suck up the caustic/ acid and water in one position then...
