  10. Electric Nanos - what percentage rate are you boiling at?

    Just curious as to what kind of boil rate people are using on small systems (especially if you happen to be running a 3-bbl system which is what we have). We're running at 60% and don't seem to be...

  13. Tiny/Nano Glycol Chiller recommendations?

    We're a brand new brewery running a 3 bbl system with 2 FV's and 1 BT. Currently we're using one of those small glycol chillers designed for tap-lines and it's pretty obvious we're going to need to...

    I do not and I will give that a shot but I can definitely say that it wasn't nearly as foamy earlier in the day yesterday.

    I released a bunch of the head pressure (down to about 11.5 PSI) and...
