    Send one of the old valve seats to Brewerygaskets.com. If they can be found, those folks will find them. Good prices, too.

    Yeah, what Linus says. The solenoid valve should be located right behind the evaporator, so the wiring is right there and easy to get to. As Linus point out, compressors run on cycles, and it's not a...

    Each of our trunks splits into two lines immediately after the pump. We've never had any problems running this way for 8 years.

    This is pretty much normal for a defrost timer. While you would normally use a double-pole switch for 208, it works if you just interrupt either leg. As shown in the wiring diagram.

    That makes no sense. OP is in Georgia, USA. All taxes and sales are figured in gallons or brewer's barrels. Most of our containers are in fluid ounces. Why add confusion?

    I know how it is. I just replaced the water control unit on a Rinnai C199 water heater. Plugged it in, turned on the water and.... nothing. I was about to start tearing back...

    Brewery Gaskets.com has some softer gaskets that do a great job on hard-to-seal manways. Check them out.

    Our HLT runs at 183-188F. No problems in over a year of using these hoses. One nice thing is that they don't have the steel wire in the casing, which tends to break out and become a hazard as the...

    I'd recommend getting the tool(s) from MicroMatic themselves. If you're using quality Sanke kegs, MicroMatic makes the valves. Be sure you also get a couple of the safety ring knives.

    No way. Just ain't happening, unless someone has sabotaged them. Even then, as mentioned, any leak between the propellant and product would be very obvious--horrible foaming at the very least.

    Very good advice there!

    For a non-fire-rated wall, I use a hole saw big enough to allow the insulated pipe to pass through with some slop, then seal with spray foam.

    Asco Red Hats are still working fine for us. For our larger fermenters, we use pneumatic poppet valves for the better flow, but the solenoids work fine for our 35-50 bbl ferms.

    If you're using a DO meter, skip the foaming agent. That would just make it look like beer, not take up O2 like it.

    For bottling/canning, you will need tanks with a higher pressure rating than is normal for fermenters. A 2 Bar rating would be about right.
