    20 Gallon SS Sanitary Brewing System

    This is a 20 G Gas-fired brew system with Electric Control box. I put this together 4 years ago but have never used due a work relocation. All connections are sanitary tri-clamps so this system can probably be set up as CIP (clean-in-place) if you installed spray balls. The only item not...

    Blichmann Top Tier Burner Review

    The Blichmann Top Tier Burner commands a premium price, which may put a lot of people off. When you can get a burner for $29.99 that does an adequate job of heating wort, why pay five times that amount for equipment that does essentially the same thing? I too was skeptical at first, and started...

    Secondary Fermentation Mead

    I've noticed that When I rack from primary into secondary (same size container as the first) I gain headroom because I leave out the sediment on the bottom, Headroom in secondary isn't good from what I hear so is there anything that I can do to take up that room? Could I fill it with a gas of...

    North Carolina Used Blichmann Tower of Power Gas Fired Control Module

    Gently used Blichmann Tower of Power Gas Fired Control Module. Used for roughly 20 batches on my RIMS system. Works like a champ, simply selling off some brewing equipment as I do not make enough time to brew enough anymore. Kids and other hobbies have made me take an honest accounting of...

    Do I Need New Disconnects?

    I've been having some woes with a leak somewhere in my keg system. I replaced the distributor with a new Taprite system (which is wonderful) and with it new lines for both gas and liquid sides. However, what was left in my C02 tank still seemed to drain very quickly. I'm taking the...

    Low gas flow from a solenoid valve.

    Hi, we're on the process of building a more automated rig for brewing. We acquired a solenoid valve to control the gas flow for an Anvil burner (45 000 btu). To our dismay, the gas flow is very low and flames coming from the burner are very small, like 1,5 cm height when the valve is opened to...
