    Stuck Grainfather Conical Fermenter

    Hello all. I just brewed my first batch using a Grainfather conical fermenter and glycol chiller. The manual suggested draining yeast every 2-3 days. Today was day 2, I tried to drain yeast and it was stuck. I don’t have a CO2 tank, and ended up using a long stainless steel rod I disinfected...

    SS Brewbucket Review

    If you have done any shopping online for brewing supplies than you have probably seen advertisements for the SS Brewbucket from SS Brewing Technologies. That was where my exposure to them began. At nearly $200 for the base model and $225 for the Brewmaster version, you might be wondering if they...

    Temperature Issues Beyond Reason

    Early this morning I brewed a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout. This is the first 12-gallon batch on "my" system. I possess a 14.5 gallon conical fermenter, so why not fill it? Since it was my first big batch, it was not without problems and a lot of learning. I learned a valuable lesson about combing...

    Commercial Glycol Line Chiller use with Conical

    Hey, I have a Morebeer 14 gallon conical with temperature control, but it just has a peltier chiller. I have since purchased a UBC glycol chiller. I plan on adding some sort of Chiller coil. The wife doesn't want a conical in her living room, so this is a necessity if its going to be in the...

    Infected Beer in Conical Fermenter

    I've been brewing for around 8 years and finally had my first infected batch. My question here is what to do with my conical fermenter that the infected beer is currently sitting in. I can address everything else rather simply. My concern is what about the valves. There are two valves on...

    Procedure for Racking from Conical?

    I have an old Fermentasaurus that I am using for the first time. I was wondering if anyone had a "best practice" for racking fermented and dry hopped (IPA) into a cornelius keg. The catch bottle that comes with it is not big enough for all the yeast residue so I emptied it once, cleaned and...

    Immersion coil vs jacket

    I am considering stainless steel conicals for common homebrewing sizes, say in the 5-20 gal range; some use immersion cooling coils (like Ss Brewtech and Spike Brewing) and some are jacketed (like Glacier, Stout, and Brewers Hardware). At these sizes, what are the differences? Besides price...

    How to dump trub out of a conical without making a mess

    Any suggestions? I have a Spike cf5 with a 2-inch butterfly valve and a 90 attached to the bottom. When I open the valve into a 5 gallon bucket, shiatzu sprays everywhere. I have thought about putting on a reducer, say a 2 to 1/2”. Eventually I will get the yeast brink from NorCal, but am...

    Multiple trub dumps from conical, lots of beer loss

    I've searched quite a bit to find an answer to my dilemma and am not finding what I'm looking for, so here goes. I recently upgraded from carboys and buckets to an SS Brewtech Chronical fementor for all the obvious, beneficial reasons. My first brew in it is a Wee Heavy. I used 20 lbs of grain...
