    magnets inside fermenter - Neodymium no good?

    the idea is to control hop contact time in the wort with no O2 ingress. with certain ferments, I find sometimes it takes multiple extra days to pass the diactyl test, and I want to ensure I can control hop contact time and mean you can experiment with early ferment VS late ferment dry hopping.

    magnets inside fermenter - Neodymium no good?

    what kind of metal disc? none of my stainless washers (316) would work.

    magnets inside fermenter - Neodymium no good?

    yep that's the link! I think it's a great mod, I only use it for dumping yeast and it's a bit questionable about reusing the yeast, it does get a bit errr....squirty.... but I haven't spent any time trying to solve that problem yet. I used QD fittings, so a collection bottle with a QD fitting...

    magnets inside fermenter - Neodymium no good?

    thanks for the info, have ordered these teflon coated discs - https://magnet.com.au/neodymium-disc-25mm-x-2mm-teflon-coated.html. will keep the existing ones out of the wort!

    magnets inside fermenter - Neodymium no good?

    So I got these, https://www.bunnings.com.au/everhang-12mm-rare-earth-disc-magnet-6-pack_p3690099 but see in other threads it's recommeded ones with teflon, like stirbars. what's the issue with Neodymium ones, corrosion? as I will have up to 150g of hops in a bag, I'll probably go with...

    No Frills low cost pressure fermenting

    being able to ferment from a chest freezer was also something that's not really been too easy, that was one of the reasons I ordered a couple! plus, xmas, spunding valve, whatever else I need to convince myself that I need this.

    maltmuncher - 0.100 = 1mm?

    thanks fellas, yeah, gotta be imperial! Just slighlty annoying as it's a KK mill, and there's no unit marking :/

    maltmuncher - 0.100 = 1mm?

    been struggling with efficiency, then I borrowed a 20L brau, and payed a bit more attention to my milling. I've got a 2 roller KK Malt Muncher with a ozito drill running it slow. Following the Brau instructions noticed having it set to 0.100 (I assume is 1mm) was doing basically nothing! lots...

    The Brauduino (Matho’s Controller) Build/Advice/Question Thread

    has anyone got some of the power sockets I can buy? I'd take 1 but would have 2 if you've got them. I can find them on ebay ( https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CNLINKO-3-Pin-Connector-Plug-Socket-Waterproof-IP67-Compatible-w-Neutrik-M24/122544821030 ) , but to get one posted quickly it's gonna cost...

    one of those stainless QDs with a 90 deg thread would give u a bit more room too. I put some beer line between the QD and the valve

    Matho's controller

    blue wire from the power input, got a sparky mate who will look into this for me, hopefully the rest of the unit is still OK.

    Matho's controller

    after 50+ brews with my trusty Brauduino, was doing a test run with my new Coolossus counterflow chiller and some PBW ramping to 80c and looked around and instead of seeing a blue backlight I saw an orange flame! shiiiiiite! switched off the 2 x 20amp plugs. Checked the temp of the top of the...

    storing water from counterflow chiller - how many liters for a 65L batch?

    ah, so now I see the benefit of reusing for cleaning/garden! Storing it for the next brew at ambient summer temps won't really work out so well! this helps alot as I'll position the barrel in a different part of the yard, cheers!

    storing water from counterflow chiller - how many liters for a 65L batch?

    just got myself one of the kegland counterflow chillers (coolossus) and would like to store/reuse the water. I've got a system that can crank out 65L of wort, how much water do I need for chilling down to around 18c? I've got 3 x 220L olive barrels I can put taps on - just wondering how many...
