    I'd check Burkert....

    They have the best pneumatic action valves I have used, but can't say a model that might work for your application without more details.

    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...

    I have personally canned many varieties specifically on Wild Goose and on Cask at above 2.6 volumes. This was both at almost 9,000ft and at sea level. One IPA would be targeted to 2.65 and other...

    Viability, Vitality, and cell density will not be negatively impacted by a 60*F fermentation. It will probably benefit those, if anything. You won’t be likely to see negative impacts on...

    I wouldnít want anything that would fill a hole in my trunk line also running through my chillers HX. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    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...

    The Anton Paar CBox has been my favorite tool of them all, but quite expensive. Last setup I quoted was around $22K USD. Cheaper options are The Beverly by Hamilton, and Orbisphere by Hach. I believe...

    If you have the carb stone at an angle, you will certainly loose some surface area contact time when the bubbles reconnect as they rise through the beer. The less the degree of angle the better. The...

    PAA is effective into the pH 8 range. I have seen studies suggesting that at a pH of 8.2-8.4 PAA can still be plenty effective as a food grade sanitizer. This is why we often measure concentration by...
