    Dual tap tower minus the taps

    Still have it? If so, shipping to 94954? Building a kegerator for a buddy of mine who's gone through some hard times, and this would be ideal!

    Cost of CO2?!?

    CO2 baffles me. I used to go to a place in Santa Rosa where it was $5 for the service and $1 per lb for the fill. They closed down, and my LHBS wants $21.99 for a 5lb exchange. Thanks to the prevalence of weed around here (woohoo!) there are plenty of hydroponics shops that exchange a 20lb for...

    SS Brewtech Brite Tanks

    Yep, go through the full thing - I don't have a hop spider though, preferring to let the little fellas roam free in my boil, but do use a filter on the kettle's pickup tube. Various dumps throughout the conical cycle as well. Just seems to be oddly unavoidable for me. I paid full whack for my...

    Do you need a 1 off Stainless part built for your system? Let's discuss it.

    I'd ordered some stuff from Jaybird via Amazon (had a gift card) prior to the fire taking hold, and happy to say they shipped out yesterday. So assumedly our favourite stainless nut is back at work, and hopefully back at home safe and sound. (Probably needs a spot of time to deal with stuff...

    SS Brewtech Brite Tanks

    I'm a bit intrigued by these as well. Been watching some video reviews, they do seem to do a good job in helping to make really clean finished beer that's ready to go in a fraction of the time after fermentation's done. I've thought about getting a couple of carb lids for my kegs to burst carb...

    Show us your sculpture or brew rig

    Recently gave Emily a good cleaning, replaced her keggles with some shiny new Spikes. Since this was taken, replaced the March pumps with Riptides for good measure. She sure doesn't look that shiny now!

    Raspberry Pi for fermentation control

    I'm using a pair of Arduino Uno's using a community sponsored shield that @Bigdaddyale sorted to run the LCD because I detested BrewPi's web interface. However the updated web interface that Thorrak has made for Fermentrack is great, and find myself using that all the time. Fermentrack is...

    Raspberry Pi for fermentation control

    Heya Ryan - same boat here, was out for three years having just built a brewpi. I switched my fermentation setup to a pair of SS Brewtech Chronicals and was going to just go their Fss setup (or whatever it's called) but thankfully @Thorrak is keeping the brewpi very much alive on our end...

    Every appendage is crossed for you and everyone else in Redding while the Carr fire burns. And @Alt, hope you managed to avoid disaster from last year in the Tubbs fire. Cheers, Gaz (Petaluma, CA)

    If you could design your homebrewery again, what would you do differently?

    Happy enough with the setup I have. In hindsight, I wouldn't have gone with the SS Brewtech Chronicals - there's nothing wrong with them, but wish I'd waited an extra 4-5 months, I'd have gotten the Unitanks instead. Aside from that, someone already mentioned it - a floor drain. I'd love for my...

    California Commercial 6-Faucet Stainless Glycol T-Tower

    Bump for something that I forgot was for sale!

    Ss BrewTech Chronical + Pump Cart = Ultimate CIP

    Ah, jays no worries - like I said, far from your fault and at no point did you suggest that everyone go out and do it. I took a stab for my setup, and it didn't work out. There's a ton of variables involved - strength of the pump spinning the ball, the position of the ball inside the conical...

    Ss BrewTech Chronical + Pump Cart = Ultimate CIP

    That’s an idea - one going each way, so when pressure builds in there it burps, and as it cools and creates a vacuum, the second valve allows air in to equalize?

    Ss BrewTech Chronical + Pump Cart = Ultimate CIP

    And while I'm at it, here's my CIP pr0n.

    Ss BrewTech Chronical + Pump Cart = Ultimate CIP

    FWIW, do NOT do this... I did, and it turned my CIP setup into Old Faithful. While cooling solution will create a vacuum, the initial hot solution is turning to steam, and creating pressure inside the Chronical. As it cools, it removes that pressure. I was noticing it and would "burp" the lid...

    SS Brewtech Chronical - Completely Clogged

    Had this issue myself this morning while racking my dry hopped pale. This is the first time I've used the Chronicals, coming from a Morebeer conical. I always do a day three dump in mid fermentation, when the yeast is still actively kreusening but the trub has had time to settle out. Was...
