Probably not - I plan on batch sparging for now; I initially thought about a electric HLT and doing a HERMS setup but honestly batch works for me and the beers I make are pretty good so the incremental cost for controllers, valves, etc. isn't worth it to me.... of course I say that as I sit here now so you never know. I hope to brew on it this weekend becuase I am impatient. I will continue to modify it for sure... my next functional goal is testing the new pump. I may test-boil some water tongiht to see how fast it goes.Right on man... Best of luck to you! It looks great so far. Make sure to post more pics as more work gets done. Also, any plans for Love temp controllers and pneumatic valves to control gas outflow?
I just realized we have a friend in common, James, who you sold the conical to. He just sent me a pic of your brew rig, and then I saw it here. Nice rig, man.
And nice conical. James is trying to make me jealous. It worked. Hope to meet you someday, and talk/brew/drink beers.
If you come across any good propane tank deals out there lemme know.
the mysterious 10gal cornie - i want one so bad. I ferment in Sanke's and cornies (5) but I want some 10's to serve from - they are hard to find!Sounds good to me. I hear you on the temperature thing. I have a small spare bathroom who's tub becomes a nice water bath for winter time brewing, but the fridge I have for warmer months fermenting is also a spare single 1/2 barrel sized kegerator. That's why I stick to my glass carboys, I can fit 3 of them (5g) in there. I've put about 5 five gallon batches through my new brew tree (before I was doing extract and mini mash for about 15 years, this site has inspired me to get seroius), I'd like to try a 10g batch with it soon. I have a 10g corny, and a possible event in which to brew for.
