    Hi Edak, What a piece of art . Well done . I did have a look at your piccies and what a top job . Have you looked at putting elbows on the outlet side of the pump ? The reason I ask is , I would be concerned with the hose being bent so much it may have a tendancy to collapse under the...

    Flat Beer From Bulk Priming

    Your bulk priming is good . However did you take into account the temp of your beer when you added the dextrose . I bulk prime all the time and only ever had one batch that had low carbonation . The temp was around 21-22 * C when I primed it and at this temp a lot of the Co2 had been released...

    Immersion Heater Question

    Any form of immersion heater in the mash tun would have to be constantly moving to avoid burning the mash .I would stick to using it as a heater for your HLT or some form of ghetto heat exchanger .

    Bulk Priming Wheat Beers

    Quite possibly that amount will make bottle bombs . I bulk primed a wheat beer with 280 gms and had a few bottles explode . The temp was around 17-18 *C which meant it had a high residual of Co2 in the fermenter . If you have fermented at 22*C which is too high for this style as well as Ales it...

    AHB Articles: turning a keg into a keggle

    I have watched the how to on cutting the tops out of the kegs . To me it seems to be a lot of dicking around to create a jig when all I did was use the guard on the grinder as a guide simple really .

    Franziskaner Clone.

    A ferulic rest is a mash temp rest . So your temp at dough in should be around the 30 or 40 whatever temp for it is and then after x amount of time at that temp you raise the temp to 50* C for another rest if you want and then to 66*C for the rest of the mesh schedule . That is the way I would...

    Immersion Chiller

    The big green shed has 3mtr x 12mm copper roles for around $15 . I used 9mtrs with a few joiners and elbows and total cost was around $50 . So if you have some ability to create stuff , this would be an easy project and a big cost saving if you don't charge for labour . ;)
