    low profile sankey to ball locks

    Lots of great ideas in here, but Whoa.. I like this a lot. No with height at all then. Easy!

    low profile sankey to ball locks

    Excellent! So pretend I'm a 5 year old. Could you link me to the parts I'm missing? :) I'm a pretty good brewer but as soon as it comes to threads and such I'm lost. About 10 years ago when I got all my kegging stuff setup I knew it all, but a lot of time (and beer) has come since then...

    low profile sankey to ball locks

    I've got those parts coming, I guess the tricky part is the threads on the low profile coupler. I don't know how I can tell what the threads are. My last resort is there is a plumbing store about 40 minutes from me, you know the kind, a few old guys, and parts are in mason jars with...

    low profile sankey to ball locks

    Hey guys! I'm trying to get a solution together to use a sankey keg with my ball lock corny setup. I've been reading and looking at posts here (and everywhere!) and have found some parts lists, but most are so old that the links don't work. So as of right now I have some parts but can't...

    Best digital thermometer

    Just an update 8 years later. Dropped on of them right into the mash while stirring this week. Tried to grab with bares hands OUCH. Put a rubber glove on fast, grabbed it. Still working! These things are great.

    I'm glad you are changing out the wires, they look unhappy. I would guess the heater is fine and the problem is really just the wires (and maybe that thermostat which you should switch) and just fully replace them (run them all the way back). I didn't get a fan, didn't think of it at the time...

    It is almost 100% the wires. Once you get to the page with the 'remove insulation' you'll be able to see if they look all burned up. If so, there are some pro tips here on what to buy and how to replace: http://www.brewieforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7

    http://www.brewieforum.net A guy from homebrewtalk put this up to help organize for exactly this kind of question. Lots of diagrams and instructions. This thread we are on probably has what you are looking for too, it is just very big :) Also, this google drive has loads of stuff...

    So smart. I was just coming here to say the same thing!

    I was all ready to do it but with the company being a little up in the air right now I'm not sure how much more I want to invest.. just yet :) Hopefully my Brewie has all its kinks worked out. Thanks for the feedback on the cage though, I'll probably just end up getting one :)

    Brewie

    Yep!! I would like to a complete list of stuff links etc that we can all use. I can host a website and jam it all on there if we need that too. https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/1NT01L-7950/1862-1073-ND/8558221 It is Digi-Key Part Number: 1862-1073-ND Manufacturer Part Number...

    This is the same problem I had. Took about 6 weeks for the parts to show up, I did order a new thermostat from digi-key instead as the replacement one they sent had a similar problem (never reaching a full boil). But now it is all good to go. I really wish they just had their parts all...

    I have heard of people if their wifi goes down it get stuck here. I _think_ it is looking for updates. That's what I've seen on the facebook pages anyways.

    I have no problem leaving my Brewie to make a quick trip to the store. However, I don't like the idea of leaving it home alone all day. But what I will do is leave it home if somebody else is home and have it brew. I also have a little cheap web cam that is pointed at it so if started smoking...

    Awesome, I'll wait to hear before I pull the trigger. :)

    http://arborfab.com/Brewie_p_139.html Any follow up feedback on these stainless basket things? 400 vs 600? Better/worse efficiency? I was thinking of getting one even if it works the same but is just easier to clean.

    Brewie

    My Brewie lives on a rolling cart that I bought from Harbor Freight. I brew in my garage and when it is done roll it into my basement (my garage is a drive under). After I brew and drain I leave the top lids open and then the next day run the drain cycle again and I get about 1/3 cup of water...

    I got remote monitoring working with VPN! So now from anywhere I can use the Brewie app on my phone. This might get a little techie but I'll do my best. I've had problems in the past getting the app to work even when home, even when I knew the IP address of my Brewie it rarely would connect...
