    Which Way Shall I Go From Here

    Christmas Crippler

    Which Way Shall I Go From Here

    High Pressure Regulator

    chiller / tdh: my orange hose is rated to 2.8 mpa, my 9kg bottle is only rated to 3.3 mpa (as are most vehicle ones too) this means 2,800 KPA, my reg is only rated to 400kpa, and I've had no need to run it past 125-150 kpa (but have had it around 250kpa) for a laugh (the horror, the horror:))...

    High Pressure Regulator

    Wort Transfer Tubing

    I use the blue nylex food grade stuff from magnet mart... i had issues with it wanting to kink, under weight on curves, so ive replaced the nasty bit with copper tube (1/2 in annealed) that i had left over from my post-chiller, and only use the tube to join, (with a couple of hose clamps...
