    Steam condenser boilover and figuring out proper power percentage

    Seems inline. I have a 24 gallon BK and have around .5-.75 gph boil off with 5500w element @ 31-32%. I set the high alarm to 209f and set temp to 212 on auto mode. Then click over to manual mode when alarm kicks on. I set to 32% and starts to low vigor boil. Takes a bit of fine tuning depending...

    Boil kettle condenser - no overhead ventilation needed

    I was wondering about that as well, was looking for a sanitary tee like they have in pvc but nobody makes one in tc form. Have seen the double 90 but it would kick the hops directly towards the condenser side of things. Will try next brew day and report back on findings both with, and without a...

    Boil kettle condenser - no overhead ventilation needed

    Yeah I was going to try without a clamp and hope the suction will keep it closed. I have some extra stainless laying around so could try to rig up some extra weight on the cap. I’ve tried taking the elbow and steam condenser off instead of lifting the lid and can second that it’s super hot when...

    Boil kettle condenser - no overhead ventilation needed

    Has anyone ever done an H configuration like this for their hop additions? Heavy lid and hot steam are the thought process around not lifting at all during the boil. Will weld a ring onto the cap to make for east removal and then use a wide-tip long funnel to not only get past the tee section...

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    Late post, but brewed Joe Dragon's Augustiner Munich Helles a couple weeks ago for the second time in a month. Was the fastest start of fermentation I've ever had. Straight on to yeast cake of prior batch that was kegged during second batch boil so was very fresh. 4 hours later, furious...

    Upright Keezer, 8 taps, 11 kegs

    Hey Flounder21 or jeffcosgrove. I've gotten a Frigidaire with the same kind of LCD display. Where was the wiring located? Center, or to the right side of the door where it comes in from the hinge location? Have tap marks lined up but don't want to drill into the wiring if I can avoid it.

    Funny things you've overheard about beer

    I just found this thread and recently brewed my first Lager. A German Helles (slightly out of style @ around 6.2% because I forgot to account for BH efficiency).. But now have to let everyone know to go slowly as they're used to the BMC and can't handle anything that is over 4-5%. I haven't...

    My new brew system, a brutus 10 with some nice modifications

    Jlandin quick question. Did you ever look into converting this system to Natural Gas? I have a LP setup right now but looking at going more automated and also converting to natural gas. Just trying to find out if the valves would work, also, how would that all work going to natural gas? Would I...

    Don't Do That.

    Go away for a week and leave a picnic tap > connected to a keg > that's hanging off of the CO2 manifold > under pressure. This is what comes next... Don't do that.

    used metal fittings to weigh down hop bag

    I would try to use a piece of copper pipe or rod. Copper in the boil has been said to increase yeast nutrient. mentions it. There are a few more threads on HBT about it also. Even if it is for just the weight, doesn't hurt to help the yeasties...
