    Super Simple 15G Plastic Conical

    TY a pic of the whole unit would be nice. That will finish off this line of questioning. That last part the: http://www.brewershardware.com/1.5-Tri-Clover-X-1-2-Female-BSPP.html is not needed if I am just adding a ball valve with a female end, correct? The parts you listed above will...

    What is used on the inside? The end of the nipple is left as it is I assume.

    Super Simple 15G Plastic Conical

    Converting from 20LB portable L.P. tank to homes L.P. tank

    Thanks for the response Gunfighter04. A copper tube was buried into the ground leading directly from my homes large LP tank to a regulator mounted outside the door of my brewery. From that regulator to my brew stand is a distance of 6 to 7 feet.

    Converting from 20LB portable L.P. tank to homes L.P. tank

    I have a single tier two burner brew rig. I have been using it with a 20 LB LP tank and it kicks butt. The burner are the 10" Hurricane/Banjo type. I had the local LP people come in and run a copper tube from my house tank to my new brew shed. They added a regulator. I am not getting...

    Yeast Harvesting Conical Style

    You folks with conicals: Do you wash your yeast after harvesting, or, do you just let it sit, decant and pitch. (Or store and make a starter before reusing.) I harvested about a gallon and a half from my 15 gallon fermentor. I will let it settle, then decant and consolidate from two...

    Brewer's yeast at farmers market

    Why spend money and time on a brew you are looking forward to enjoying and serving to your friends and then gamble with the least expensive ingredient?

    Treating water - both the mash and sparge?

    When treating water is it only the mash to be concerned about? Or, are there factors in which the sparge water needs treatment? When using extract water is not treated. Thanks

    STC 1000 "Ebay" Temperature Controller Build

    I just completed my build and am about to set it up and run some test cycles. Thanks for the thread. I do have a question that may have been answered but a search did not spot it out for me. How long should I set the compressor delay between cycles? Do I just pick a number of minutes and...

    Successful Fermentation Chamber Heat Source

    I have a need to add a heat source to my standard refrigerator I use as a fermentation chamber. I use it with a 15 gallon conical. If I read the above correctly, the refrigerator can be located in very cold areas such as an outbuilding and the heat sources placed within the refrigerator can...

    Super Simple 15G Plastic Conical

    Yes Squeeky, congrats on the new brew shop that some call a house. I built the 15 gallon version of this build and love it. Late last summer I brewed a couple of batches and used a refrigerator to maintain fermentation conditions. Then, in early winter the ambient temperature cooled to...

    force carb, then bottle, then much flatter carb?

    The OP asks what he can do in the future. For his current situation, could he simply add some carb tabs? Also, in the future could he follow his procedure as he noted but add carb tabs at the transfer from keg to bottle?

    Fermenting in a refrigerator placed in a cold garage.

    I am interested in this unit as a two stage controller. I want it to both heat and cool my 15 gallon conical sitting within a refrigerator located in a cool 45F garage: http://www.ebay.com/itm/All-purpose-Temperature-Controller-STC-1000-Whit-sensor-/320628773067 What other equipment might I...

    Fermenting in a refrigerator placed in a cold garage.

    Dr. Francois, I did not have the controllers probe attached to the side of the conical. I recognize that as a brewermaster's mistake. I usually do tape it appropriately but was tired from a long brew day and let it go. Lesson learned, BTW.

    Fermenting in a refrigerator placed in a cold garage.

    I do think that constant 60F is the issue. That, along with 15 gallons beginning to heat up due to its own fermentation process and, an brewer error. I left the Johnson's probe loose in the chamber rather than taped to the side of the fermentor as I usually have done in the past.
