    I would look at getting a vapor condensate stack for your kettle. That will keep the smell down and you can say that you're not emitting anything during the boil. Then you're only looking at venting...

    I used to make Root beer for the pub I worked at. We would mix it up in bung sided 1/2 bbl kegs. The pub had a dedicated tap line for root beer, we never sold that much but dads/kids did love it....

    That looks more like an electrical problem to me - my guess is something is wired incorrectly/sized wrong and when drawing power your plugs are getting hot. Get that looked at ASAP.

    Looking at those I would say that all 3 pictures have too few rakes to properly work for cutting the lauter. For that to work the you need to have quite a few rakes spaced close together and the...

    My process for adding mash salts is more or less the same

    Why are you adding so many different salts? Are you starting from RO or something? For my water I'm only adding CaCl2, CaSO4 or both. I've...

    I've heard that NEIPA's are very susceptible to darkening due to oxidation. Never tried bottling one but that is the first thing that comes to my mind.

    For strainers you'll want 1 big wye strainer near your chiller, that will catch the vast majority of the crap. I don't use any other strainers, but I do keep a ball valve on either side of the...

    I'll third the Zahm. There isn't any real point in going cheaper than one of them.

    I think the distinction is that a brewery can't serve directly from tax determination tanks. I know several breweries that have serving tanks, but they all fill a separate brite first and send some...

    Depends on how your setting up your system. Most glycol systems have a bypass and constantly pump cold glycol from the chiller through the lines. The temp controller is only wired to the solenoid...

    I knew I was missing something simple. Just out of curiosity - have you by chance checked what the water temp is coming out of the HX?

    To be honest I would double check that you have everything on...

    You might be able to get away with the single stage HX, IF it has multiple passes. Otherwise I highly doubt it will do enough. I've found that with 2 passes and 50F ground water I can do ales without...

    Just to make sure, before I suggest anything stupid - you're having 1.5 hr knock outs to chill, but the water test with boiling water is taking less than 30 min?

    I've never tried F-2 in primary, I get it in 20 g packs for bottling and use it only for that. And I've never worried about filtering out the primary yeast, I just use it for bottle conditioning...

    S 04 will work for carbonation, Personally I prefer the Fermentis F-2 as its designed to be used for bottling and sticks very well to the bottom of the bottle.

    I would add extra yest when you...

    Dan,

    I don't personally have one, but I know a few brewers that do (that usually don't post here) From what I've seen and heard they're super easy to use and reliable. Everyone seems to love...

    I've always pitched the full amount of yeast in the first batch and only oxygenated the first batch as well. In my experience adding O2 the second day, when primary fermentation is already going,...

    If you need an expiration date you can try hot/cold cycling your cans to get a good estimate for your shelf life. I don't have the book I got the cycles from in front of me so look it up and double...

    I'm pretty sure its illegal as the volume in the container is less than the label says it is. Personally I wouldn't take the risk to sell them out of the tasting room etc.
    Now if you're giving them...

    Personally I would go with a HX and a small pump to recirculate the CLT. I've seen a couple tanks with coils freeze up around the coils - If you can figure out a way to keep the tank moving enough to...

    Having the mill in the shed should work just fine. I would recommend putting a grist case for milled grain in the brewery somewhere though. Otherwise you're going to have to do some major corrections...

    I would third beer pumps. In my experience beer gas is pretty finiky and for a lot of runs needs a custom blend to keep carbonation levels just right.
