    NEIPA Brewers who dont have oxidation issues. Need input

    I'm trying to track down my source of oxidation (or what i assume is oxidation). My NEIPAs come out incredible when out of the fermenter, and into the keg, and carbonated. The first couple of weeks they taste exactly as they should, and look exactly as they should. Within 3-4 weeks, they...

    Dryhops stuck on Chiller Coil

    Anyone else with SS Brewtech BME gear have issues with your dryhops getting stuck on the top of the chiller coil? I've got a 7 gallon BME Chronical and since the top of the coil is around 7 gallons, its above the wort/krausen line for most beers. For my final dryhop i use a...

    Low pressure co2 regulator

    Can someone recommend me a low pressure CO2 regulator for cold crashing and transfer in non-unitank fermenters? I was using a paintball tank and micro-regulator but it’s extremely unreliable and my prv is too fickle for something that isn’t rock solid, and if I’m upgrading to a full CO2 tank and...

    AC Glycol Chiller Cooler sizing

    Is there any sizing considerations for the cooler in an AC DIY Glycol build? Any reason why a larger cooler would work better than a smaller other than stabilization of the glycol temp due to thermal mass when you're trying to cold crash multiple FVs, or control multiple larger FVs? Just...

    Taplist on TV through USB

    Anyone using their home bar/brewing area tv as a taplist without using something like Taplist through Firestick? I've got an LED tv in my basement bar/brewing area that has Roku built in, but i see Taplist.io is only compatible with Firestick. Seems silly to purchase Firestick considering my...

    Inline Thermometer issue - Northern Brewer Stainless CFC

    So i picked up the Stainless CFC from Northern Brewer. It has 1/2"NPT fittings on the wort side, standard 3/4" garden hose fittings on the water side. I wanted to plumb in an analog thermometer on the outlet so i can monitor the outlet temp to know when to move the output to the fermenter. I...

    Taplist without Pi or Fire?

    Anyone using a digital taplist on a Roku enabled smart tv? I see Taplist.io requires Amazon Fire or Raspberry Pi, no Roku support. I'm thinking of maybe just building a simple 1920x1080 image file template that i can update and display on the tv with a usb stick

    Twistee Cans - Seamerless canning

    Stumbled across these on facebook. Seems like they're the old Monster Energy can style with the twist off top. If they sealed properly, and were reusable a couple times, might be a cool alternative to canning with a can seamer for some to-go beers or if you want to share for a competition or...
