    Questions about March Pumps answered by the Factory!

    I have a TE-5K-MD with a .2HP Baldor motor I got for $35 on eBay 6 years ago, it shoots water 12 ft into the air through a St. Pats keg cleaning sprayball.... I could use it for a 7bbl fermenter with that sprayball. I also have what I think is the same pump head on one of the new AC-5 Beer...

    Questions about March Pumps answered by the Factory!

    I do not think the 809 will function with a sprayball very well, a 325 does OK on my spinning, keg-cleaning sprayball I got from St. Pats, but I really like the way a TE-5 march pump spins it for CIP... For CIP, a TE-5x-MD will work great, and a TE-5.5x-MD is awesome... Interested to see what...

    Anyone using 2 plate chillers to cool their wort ??

    I agree with the 'recirculate the wort through the chiller until temp not dropping any more', then 'use a $30 harbor freight sump pump in a bucket of ice water' to take from there...' method... I have two therminators to do the series thing with hose water in one and icewater in the other and...

    Why are carbonator caps so expensive?

    So when does this patent expire? After that they should come down to the retail price of a 3-piece airlock and an auto-siphon $2-$10 and I will own 10-20 of them...
