    This exactly.

    I did not mean to start the next revolution (pun intended), however this is why I ultimately left with the point that you should use whatever is the easiest form for you to speak in...

    All the above, plus add some of the dye you are going to use to color your glycol into the water test cycle for easy identification of any leaks.

    Also, if your chiller capacity allows it (doesn't...

    Since we don't know much about your system or operations, it is difficult to give much advice.

    I would say if you are in the 10 hL range or less, it can be as simple as pulling your yeast to...

    I believe you are referring to a protein buildup that occurs with repeated light (or non) cleaning. I have pulled this out of about 6-7 brewhouses from previous operators who only chase with HLT...

    I think many might argue for hL (hectoliters), and the metric system in general for ease of measurements.

    For me, at a certain point it stopped making much difference. I think of gallons in terms...

    Hopefully you have removed the majority of DMS through boiling.

    3 things primarily in my mind. I am an advocate for spunding, but usually do it right after peak activity.

    1 - The off gassing...

    Yes I am not disputing the density properties of beer and water.

    Over enough time the system will balance and stratification should not be an issue if jacket coverage is adequate and conditioning...

    Well the calculation is the easy part. Explaining why chunks of dry ice in a pot of water do not cause it to turn to ice is the hard part. It was more of a sublimate joke :confused:

    I would say I have never had an issue getting full flow through the bottom cone jacket of a parallel setup (a dozen or so setups actually) and lagering at -0.5*C for a decade plus as well. You should...

    Dick and Eric have all the key questions and considerations there.

    Although I would contend that thinner mashes do not have any scientific reason they would kill the enzymes (?). There are...

    I am absolutely not the expert in this area, but I would suggest you also consult with the power company on the billing practices and how they might be affected by your choice. I have seen varying...

    This..... with your preferred solenoid/pneumatic/motorized ball valve on the main drop for your controller output signal.

    If you are talking conceptually, then a series setup will probably be...

    I would agree with the points made by Philip. Pneumatic actuated angle seats are the bees knees. I like the 2000 series valves by Burkert myself. However, I have had an actuator spring break on one...

    This is why it is super important to understand chemical compatibility. Stainless Steel (304 or 316 of our usual "food" or "medical" grades), EPDM, & Viton are fine for KOH, NaOH, and PAA at our...

    That is good to know!

    I guess I just assumed it was a bypass and never really considered otherwise. Looking a second time, I do notice the dual liquid connections. I did also read the manual, but...

    I know it is semantics, but you are not heat sterilizing with water unless your water is at 121*C (250*F) and you apply it for a minimum of about 15 mins. You are likely pasteurizing only, which does...

    First, I will echo the sentiments mentioned. Spunding is always my first choice. Uni-tanks are your friend.

    I will just throw this out there. You could also consider using natural carbonation...

    The reversal valve does allow you to clean in both directions. It bypasses the positive displacement pump. You need a separate pump to circulate solution through the system. For pretty much any...

    This - Noritz makes a nice commercial grade unit. If you're above 10hL/bbl then I'd look at the Hot Liquor Back solution Todd mentions.

    First, I would always recommend you contact the HX manufacturer for their best practices recommendation. Generally, it is recommended to run your CIP solution in the reverse direction of normal flow...
