    These ARE good!

    I've been using the swivel 24" ones for 3-1/2 years in a brewery where the drains are the high points in the room. They are still going strong- even the foam blades last a long time. The swivel is...

    Also:

    In addition to the pump question- does it have a surge tank for rinse water, fed through the pump? If using 'city water' pressure to feed the rinse, the flow can become ineffective. Probably OK for...

    OK, I'm going to go off on a tangent, but it will involve stickers, not tinfoilhattery. Hereabouts in Michigan, most small breweries have a 'sticker collection', generally on the cold room door or...

    Clear is better!

    I'm just dry hopping my third take on the Brut, and wouldn't want to serve it if it was cloudy. Yuck. I'm using Clarex in my dry-hopped beers, which greatly reduces haze from the added polyphenols....
  7. Read your SDS

    This information is in the SDS for each chemical preparation, and is specific to each. Your supplier should provide these for you as a matter of course.

    Dry Hops>

    Could be from dry hopping, introducing polyphenols. Brewers Clarex, also available from BSG, and also added at pitching, will do you right. It's an enzyme that selectively cleaves the proteins that...

    Original gravity? That will allow you to calculate your attenuation, and see if it's "in bounds."

    +1 on this. All I can think is there's no bypass valves on the pumps, in which case adding/reworking the pump plumbing would be way simpler than what you're contemplating, plus, as Timm said, you'll...

    We've been adding Amylo 300 at pitching, as per manufacturer's instructions. Works fine. As noted, you can't harvest yeast if you use it on the cold side.

    Another thing...

    Something to be aware of- a lot of jockey boxes connect the coils to the shanks with rubber compression fittings. These are to be avoided if at all possible. I've lost enough beer to float a...

  17. Pigtail?

    Do you have a pigtail on your sample valve? Without one, you will always get a glass of foam, regardless of whether it's over carbed.

    Dry hopping effects on attenuation

    How/when was the beer dry-hopped? Dry hopping can cause additional attenuation over time. This was the topic of some discussion at the last CBC. Info from the relevant talk is posted at...

    More info?

    Where was the fermentation at when this happened? High temps are an especial worry during the initial growth phase, afterwards, not nearly as much. US-05 is pretty forgiving, and a very low ester...

    I like this one

    5079K65

    Works like a dream on my 30BBL bright. I used 2 90 degree MPT-barb fittings, and mounted it near the reg. I also installed a three way valve to bypass the rota for pushing, purging, etc.

    Michigan sees them as both

    ...unless it is filled in advance, then they are treated as bottles. Most of us, therefore, do not fill in advance.
