    Do you know how many turns you set the flow control to for sparging? for instance, my flow control valve is at the closed position when the clip is at the bottom...half turn is pointing up

    Spike Complete System

    Is it the recoverable dead space? BS has the default as 0.32 gal for the 15 gal system. If that’s the case then I don’t need to top off my mash tun

    Spike Complete System

    I’ll have to look and see if anyone is selling a used one On the market. For now I’ll go another few batches to see if I can nail down a routine. Although I’m inly brewing every two months now that we have a 1 yr old. as far as water to add to mash. do you account for the herms coil? BS...

    Closed Transfer issues @ low pressure

    I gravity drain into liquid out post from my big mouth bubbler with no pressure and I don’t have a problem unless there’s a bunch of hops still in suspension. This will clog the poppet. As stated earlier you need to pull the relief valve to allow liquid to flow. TBC, I think we’re all assuming...

    WTB 10 gal corny keg

    I’m in the same boat as you. Can’t fit the fancy new fermentors in my chest freezer either(5cuft). I randomly jumped on FB market and a local Denver business was selling two of them used but in mint condition for $250 each. I got it for $220. I always have to have a blow off and other...

    First attempt at fermenting in Corny Keg - utter fail
