    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Going bigger and stainless. A lot of things happened during the last years. For one, I together with a friend has started a commercial brewery in Sweden. There we brew quite big batches (4000 liter fermentors 1000+ US Gallon) My old system has served us well for creating prototypes, but...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    It has served me well. :) If you go for plastic, get a transparent type as much of the joy is to see wort clarity when using a recirculating system like RIMS or HERMS.

    Formula for dissolved CO2

    Know this is an ancient post but as I just coded a little device that does calculations for dissolved CO2 here are the formulas that I use (Based on Zahm Nagels chart) Temp - Formula 30 F 0,1097936017X+1,7052941176 31 F 0,1074406605x+1,6720915033 32 F 0,104747162x+1,640575163 33 F...

    Show us your sculpture or brew rig

    A year back or so, two of my co workers and I decided to go a bit bigger than our homebrewing systems. Now our new "sculpture" is produced and November 15 it will be on a ship to Sweden where we have started a new microbrewery. We do have some more pictures on our facebook page...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Hop leafs and grain husks tend to find its way to places in the pump house where you don't want them to be or get stuck. That was something that I noticed after inspecting my pumps and cleaning the pump houses a few months back. Even after cleaning with CIP:s like PBW that I let...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Couldn't find my stir bars so I threw in a stack of neodym magnets instead (which is not optimal since those magnets are quite strong and slows down the fan). But I was eager to see it in operation so here we go.

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    This is the latest addition to the brewery...or well the lab part of the brewery. A magnetic stir plate. I was going to make a LM350 based regulator using a schematics like this: But since I had a RPM regulator that I didn't use for my PC I picked that one instead. So it was a...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Well actually I don't drink that much Carls...but as I passed through Denmark one day I decided to get a couple of cases as I could re-use the bottles. :)

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    As I only have 5 operational kegs, I sometimes need to bottle beer to free up kegs. But cleaning bottles I find quite boring. So I decided to put together a cheap, ugly dish washer for bottles last Sunday. The principle is simple and I have seen it done by others on different forums as...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Today since the weather was not the best I decided to spend some time in the brewery working with the equipment. Have seen so many shiny stainless creations on here, and since I don't have that much stainless in my system, the biggest piece I have got pimped. Here is a "before" shot (boiler to...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Well Hässleholm isn't that far from me. So if you are here later this year then let me know and we could do a brew. Will however try to tile the brewery during winter so it might be out of service for a couple of weeks. :)

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Thank you, I try to be quite detailed in the thread always someone that think it's usefull when they build their own system. Not saying that I do everything perfect from the beginning, but when I try out my ideas then it's easier to know how to improve (plus then I always have an excuse to...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    Darn...then I guess it's true that there is no such thing as a free beer. :)

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    If my brew ends up tasting odd, then I think it's because of the long cooling time when I went to the emergency room to get stitches and not from my foaming mash. :) Guys, it has been an interesting discussion - but maybe it should be continued in new thread as this is a DIY build thread and...

    I decided to start building a brewing system

    *nods* thats why I don't get too worried about the foaming druring mashing...and even if it would end up somewhat oxidizing the wort, then my 90 min boil probably would de-oxidize it. Today's brew session however, didn't go as expected. Trip to ER and 6 stitches due to falling while carrying a...
