    Hard 'No'

    Don't use that or anything like it...for starters, it's a dissolved Oxygen disaster. Plus pasteurization requires very quick heating and cooling with pretty precise temp control. That unit is not...

    A real 4

    Also, not all mills with 4 rollers are 4 roller mills. They are just two two roller mills stacked. Imo you have to be brewing tens of thousands of barrels before this matters .
  3. Get a densitometer

    Due to manufacturing techniques, inappropriate sample prep, and user error there is really no such thing as an actual 'high precision' hydrometer. If you just need 'good enough' data, use any decent...
  4. That's not right...

    that is 100% a manufacturer's defect. Ball should know about that...and be refunding Crowler Nation as they should be refunding you.

    finance

    Wrong question...better question is this: who can write you a lease for the keg washer you want. Plenty of third party finance companies out there that will 'Loan/Lease' you any equipment you want....

    Just about any of the major manufacturers will build you a quality tank for decent money. Be VERY specific about what you want, and I always try to use a company with a us based distributor so you...

    Lots to chew on

    Well, if you want to go pro I'll start by saying that you have legal obligations you'll need to explore in detail. I am NOT a lawyer, so keep that in mind as you read the following.

    First off, you...

    zahm it up

    Zahm will be the cheapest (believe it or not) for the piercer. Hamilton Beverly for DO...or Hach etc. All will work fine

    recalibrate or replace cap

    You've either calibrated incorrectly, or you need a new sensor cap. These tend to fail up, not down...so i'd guess calibration error. The one not-so-great thing about the meter is the instructions...

    finings

    I will mention, just for the sake of argument, that you can buy an awful lot of fining agents for the $80K the spinner costs....just sayin'. ha

    Yes you can

    I reads down to 4ppb at +/1 5 ppb....which for a craft brewery is PLENTY fine for measuring DO in your finished cans. Used one for this for years. If you're tighter than that, I'd be super surprised...
  16. pull 'em

    Are your spray balls not removable from outside of the tank? I suggest never ordering tanks where this is not the case. The confined space issues with climbing in a tank are extreme...plus it's just...

    pH meter

    You calibrate your pH meter each time you use it (or regularly at least)? Also, how old is the probe? Store it in buffer solution? With that alkalinity and harness i'd expect your water pH AND your...

    Not so expensive

    It's not as expensive as you might think. Not sure what you're paying for CO2. If you're paying...say...$0.25 per pound and it takes 100 pounds to purge the tank (an amount that is reasonable) that's...
  20. bananna bomb

    2) pitch at the correct amount (1MM per ML per...

    Meters

    Hamilton Beverly (measures PPM and PPB), or the Hach 3100 are both vis meters and are good places to start. BTW, call a 3rd party leasing company and finance that bad boy if you can't come up with...

    What Linus said!!!

    Buy a good DO meter and use it often! I'm amazed that people are buying filtration and packaging equipment for hundreds of thousands of dollars and won't spend $10k on a DO meter. I'd be a ten spot...
