    Pumping wort into FastFerment

    Hello fellow brewers! Looking for some ideas from the group. I use a pump to push the wort through a plate chiller into a FastFerment 14g. When I have a helper it's no problem, they just hold the hose into the top of the fermenter. The top of the fermenter is nearly 5-1/2 feet of the ground...

    First Time Whirlpooling with Pump

    I tried whirlpooling with a Riptide and a Spin Cycle arm during my brew a few days ago, but was pretty underwhelmed by the results. I didn't have any sort of trub cone at the bottom of the kettle - all the cold break seemed to be spread out on the bottom of the kettle like it normally is. I had...

    Need advice re pump

    We need to move Kombucha from our commercial size fermenter to food grade buckets for flavoring. The fermenters are on stands but not high enough up to let gravity take its course. We’ve read that a chugger pump may be the way to go. Would love some advice as we’ve never needed pumps until now...
