    A few more shots of plumbing progress today. I've never seen so many butterfly valves in my life.

    Well. Here we go. Installation has begun & it's the end of day one. Tomorrow will be installation of the 5 fermenters & plumbing up all the tanks, kettles etc. Glycol plumbing towards the end of the day.

    2400W ULD Element Wiring

    Ok. Finally, it's done. I'm no electrician so if if you decide to do any electrical work yourself, do it at your own risk but I'd advise getting a qualified electrician in to do the job for you.....if you can get one that bothers to turn up. It's really tight in the element cover but all good...

    2400W ULD Element Wiring

    I guess the extra washers are intended to connect there, makes more sense right? I'll connect Active to pin 2 & neutral to pin 3, earth to earth bolt. My mates a sparky but he lives half an hour from me so it's hard to catch him when he's not so busy. I've sent him through the pic as well but he...

    2400W ULD Element Wiring

    Hi guys. I'm hoping a sparky can chime in here & answer a couple of questions in relation to polarity wiring theses elements & if it matters or not. In the diagram, pins 1&2 are bridged as well as pins 3&4. The elements I believe are 1200w bridged to get 2400w. One element is pins 1&3 the other...

    Braumeister 50L misses OG on high ABV brews

    I'd mash in closer to, or at protein rest temp. Even 5mins at 55, conversion takes off straight away. You might be flaffin around mashing in before the next step to 62. Try a Hochkurz mash for higher gravity beers. I've found it really boost efficiency. 30m @62, 30m @70, then mash out. Failing...

    Might of been my misinterpretation of owners vs council permission. I know we can't keg for other establishments where we are but if all goes well, a larger production brewery is on the cards at the Industrial Estate. I know there's mobile canning businesses around if they head down that path...

    Thanks razz. There's no one on the face of this earth that's better suited to that role than Chook. Every time they come out to my place to taste a new beer on tap, he's here for the long haul. He always turns up with an esky full of prawns or mud crabs which go hand in hand with a cold one. I'm...

    It would be great to meet you in person & put faces to names. Looking forward to catching up over a nice cold beer & a cracking pizza.

    Some exciting news for me. I'll be brewing full time at The Wobbly Chook Brewing Company in Yamba, NSW. It's a small scale, pilot brewery with planned expansion to a larger production brewery within two years. Due to zoning & council regulations, the brewery will be focusing on beers brewed on...

    RIP Pistol Patch

    The exact experience for me as well, same time frame when I got into All grain too. He has done some great work over on the BIABrewer.info forum. He will be sadly missed by a lot of us in the brewing community.

    Motion dynamics speed control wiring

    Exactly the experience I had with them as well. My board didn't even work. Rang 4 times, emailed three & spoke to the bonehead that owns it but he denied he was the boss. Like above, go elsewhere, ******* useless.

    Camlock Males

    Cheers. I might have to go all 1/2" instead. I really didn't want to reduce my pump inlet & outlet.

    Camlock Males

    Just a quick question. I need a couple of different size camlock males for the CIP system I'm setting up. Are the 1/2", 3/4" & 1" all the same size? The male end where the female locks onto? I'm needing to run 1" camlocks, male threads from my pump but from the butterfly valves on the unitank...

    US05 yeast - slight after taste and dry

    Temp wasn't my problem. 18deg ferment for two weeks, one week at 2degC cold crash. Taste was there & all following beers using it. I even tried a different stainless fermenter to no avail. It's not a process or procedure problem for me. I don't know what the hell it is but I can taste it.

    US05 yeast - slight after taste and dry

    Mate, you might have an ultra sensitive pallete to certain things like me. I stopped using US-05 years ago for this very reason. I could detect a slight plasticide type taste, almost like drinking water that's been in a bad quality plastic bottle. Very slight but noticeable.....To Me! Friends...

    Interesting. All the charts I've seen everywhere don't reflect on that calculation but it makes perfect sense.
