    Pot Filling Cam-Lock Adapter w/Valve

    While brewing on my brew stand setup a few weeks ago, I realized I needed a better way to fill my pots than just dropping the hose in and turning the valve on at the wall. I have cam-lock quick connects on all my pots, so I came up with the following. There's a B type Cam-Lock fitting, a...

    Inline TC Gasket Filters?!?

    Doesn't seem like a good idea. If you're using a false bottom in the bottom of your MLT, I think it would be best to just vorlauf and use the grain bed as the filter. If you have a pump, you can recirculate the output of the MLT back into the top of the MLT and you'll get very good filtration...

    DIY Walk In Cooler Build

    What regulators are you using for this? I'm assuming the Swagelok needle valves are just being used as shut-offs?

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

    Do you have a pilot burner and a thermocouple connected to the valve? Without a thermocouple to verify the pilot flame, the valve will not open. Also, do you have the off/pilot/on knob set to on?

    Sid's One Vessel All Grain Brewing System

    Hose water is cool, but you might want to get one of those white RV drinking water hoses. Green hoses seem to really funk up the taste of your water.

    Burnt crud in pot

    Yeah, I'm thinking some of the flour must have settled on the bottom of the pot and scorched. Time will tell if there is any flavor impact. As for the color, now that it's fermenting, it's actually lightening up quite a bit. There was a big dose of hops at whirlpool so it's possible part of...

    New Belgium/Lost Abbey "Brett Beer"

    The interview with Lauren Salazar says it's filtered, not pasteurized. Either way the result is the same, no brett left in the bottle. They do pasteurize their sour beers such as La Folie.

    Burnt crud in pot

    I brewed up a 12 gallon batch of Saison this weekend. It was a bit of a fustercluck of a day and a few things went wrong. Now I'm trying to figure out what exactly happened. First off, my mill was acting up and I ended up getting a crush that was quite a bit finer than normal. with quite a...

    Keg Score

    After years of checking Craigslist for deals on Corny kegs, I finally scored two tonight for $25 each! Now up to 5 kegs in good working condition and 3 that are in need of some parts and TLC.

    So who's brewing this weekend?

    If all goes according to plan, I'll be brewing a double batch of a Tank 7 clone, splitting it and using Wyeast 3724 on both halves, but hitting one half with Brett C once primary finishes.

    direct fire rims temp

    I'm far from an expert on the subject since I've only brewed two batches on my new setup (direct fired RIMS), but I set my controller to the mash temperature and it seemed to work well. I'm measuring the temperature in a tee at the outlet valve on the mash tun. It stands to reason that if the...
