    You can reliably mix your tank by recirculating with a pump out of the cone bottom into the racking arm/standpipe. Disadvantage is you are pulling any trub and spreading it around too. You have to be...

    Bemidji is on top of it....I’m guessing this is a post-brewing issue as sulphur in drinking water is usually quite easy to detect. Most people won’t drink it if it smells like sulphur. Usually it...

    Frequency converter is the proper answer in this case. (Or 50hz euro spec’d unit sized to BTU requirement) - probably difficult to find in 110/115V.

    This....save the metasilicates for inside the tanks where you will rinse well. I still prefer KOH or NaOH myself. I only use the metasilicates on Bev lines and aluminum myself.

    I like this. But I usually opt for platinum or silver cured silicone tubing and a TC hose barb that I can remove each use. You should be able to autoclave it, hot liquor, or use PAA and achieve a...

    Pure oxygen is toxic to yeast (and other living tissues). It is therefore, in effect, sterile. A virus may be able to survive in a pure O2 environment, but it would not support the host, so the virus...
