    Glycol Temps, whats yours?

    I'm curious if there are any downsides to keeping glycol temps in higher than normal ranges like 55°F. I am thinking about this for a few reasons but one of them is when I am not fermenting beer there isn't really a need to have the temps down at 28 °F. My concern is if higher temps would assist...

    Glycol chiller repair

    My SS Brewtech glycol chiller has lost most of its capacity to cool. It gets the glycol reservoir down to target temperature eventually, but it can’t keep up with even a single 5-gallon batch if I want to go lower than 65°F. Cooling more than one batch, lager fermentations, and cold crashing are...

    Using portable beverage chiller as glycol chiller

    I have found a used remote cooler that is used for chilling up to 4 beer lines at events for a great price. It is more of a glorified jockey box in that it will chill 4 beer lines, but is not intended to pump glycol to an external fermenter. There is a pump to circulate the water/glycol bath...
