    Low profile (<1/2") blow off tube for Fermonster 7 gallon big mouth carboy in a fermentation chamber.

    @Knightshade The setup in the attached image would work great. Where did you find it ? It turns out that fitting is used with the Brewjacket Immersion Pro chilling system. https://www.homebrewwest.ie/brewjacket-adjusted-lid-for-fermonster-7792-p.asp Where can I buy that elbow by itself ...

    Low profile (<1/2") blow off tube for Fermonster 7 gallon big mouth carboy in a fermentation chamber.

    Yes, 1/2" between the top of an undrilled lid and the ceiling of the fridge. No airlock. So I'll need to use a blowoff tube of some sort and a jar that acts as the air lock. Unless I drill a hole in the top of the fridge for the airlock to stick out of ? Are there freon tubes in the top...

    Low profile (<1/2") blow off tube for Fermonster 7 gallon big mouth carboy in a fermentation chamber.

    I bought an Igloo Frw482c wine fridge to use as a fermentation chamber. It holds a 7 gallon Fermonster without modification but there is less than 1/2" clearance between the lid and the ceiling of the fridge. How do I make a really low profile blow off tube for this setup ? 2 pieces of...

    What harm would there be to letting it sit on the trub ?

    Making an infinite starter?

    Wow, 10 years! That is pretty impressive. Thanks for sharing this. I want to do something similar. What are you storing your banked yeasts in ? How are you ensuring the storage container is sterile ? Are you freezing your yeasts or storing at a low temp ?

    Will the Fermonster Big Mouth 7 gallon carboys fit in the 3.2 cu ft mini fridges ?

    Would it fit on a shelf above the step if you removed the air lock ? Would you still need the collar ?

    Will the Fermonster Big Mouth 7 gallon carboys fit in the 3.2 cu ft mini fridges ?

    Here is what a Danby 3.2 looks like for height. A 7 gallon Fermonster Big Mouth is about 22 inches tall with the lid on, without an air lock. Edit: this says 20.9 inches. https://www.morebeer.com/products/fermonster-carboy-7-gal-spigot.html My 7 gallon fermenter is 21 1/4" to the top of the...

    Will the Fermonster Big Mouth 7 gallon carboys fit in the 3.2 cu ft mini fridges ?

    There are 2 common sizes 3.2 and 4.4 cu ft. What size are yours ? Are you setting the fermenter right on the bottom or above the shelf ? Thanks for the reply.

    Will the Fermonster Big Mouth 7 gallon carboys fit in the 3.2 cu ft mini fridges ?

    Subject says it all. I'd like to buy a mini fridge for use as a fermentation chamber. The ones I see for sale locally are all 3.2 cu ft. Danby, Hamilton Beach, etc. They all look the same. The freezer compartment appears to be easily removable. I'm not sure if there will be enough height...

    Convert this immersion chiller into a counterflow chiller ?

    "You definitely want to unwind it to a long straight shape" Copper work hardens. My coil has probably already been straightened and rolled into its current form. It would be dicey to unroll it and re roll it. What are the chances of sliding hose over the coil without unrolling it ?

    Convert this immersion chiller into a counterflow chiller ?

    I recently came to own an immersion chiller. It is 18 wraps of 3/8" tubing. I'm guessing 50 feet of tubing. I have a plate chiller but dislike it because it is very prone to plug. I'm not a fan of immersion chillers. I'd love to have a tubing type counterflow chiller. How difficult would...

    Tips for getting high gravity worts to completion and restarting/repitching stalled fermentations ?

    Thanks for the tips. Very interesting about the amylase. I happen to have some on hand. I'll add it to my currently stuck fermentation and see what happens. I often ferment will a less attenutive yeast for its flavor profile, hoping to pitch a second yeast later on to get it dry. This...

    Tips for getting high gravity worts to completion and restarting/repitching stalled fermentations ?

    I do a lot of reiterative mashes for high gravity brews. 1.080 to 1.120. I always have trouble getting them to ferment dry - less than 1.020. What are the secrets to getting high gravity worts to ferment dry ? I've tried repitching stalled worts to get them drier, never with any success...

    Scaling up Fremont Brewing's barrel aged Dark Star Oatmeal Stout recipe - increase just base malt or proportional ?

    A common complaint of this beer is the coffee flavor is too forward.

    Scaling up Fremont Brewing's barrel aged Dark Star Oatmeal Stout recipe - increase just base malt or proportional ?

    Update: I brewed my Dark Star Clone on the weekend. OG was 1.087. I'm aiming for ~10% ABV before I add whiskey and age it in a wooden "barrel". It smells delicious - chocolate, raisin, plum. I cut back the roasted malts a bit as I'm not a huge fan of coffee flavors in my beers. Not sure if...

    Scaling up Fremont Brewing's barrel aged Dark Star Oatmeal Stout recipe - increase just base malt or proportional ?

    After much thought and comparison between Chinooklehead, Pre Dark Star and a Dark Star clone made by a member of my LHBC, my clone will be this: 69% 2 row pale 9% Crystal 80 8% chocolate malt (450-500L) 9% oats 5% Black Prinz 7 x 1.080 = 560 points total. My iterative mashes yield about 30...
