Re: Log in issues on Chrome

Is anyone else finding this very slow now? I have skinnyband (not broadband) and nothing works until all of the pictures have loaded?

Re: Draining gunk and cleaning

Really is a stunningly good mod. I can see why Brau now have similar on the newer models.

Re: Time for mesh replacement - options?

I bought 2 of the largest mesh BAC filters. BRILLIANT.... very pleased.

I have a NEVER had a moving upper disk (since first fountain) and the squeezing idea is poppycock imo. Contained movement of grain is what is required.

Re: TURBO chiller

Good work fella.

That will not disappoint.

Remember to keep the "out " open when you drop it in boiling wort. The temp will cause expansion and fire your fittings across the room. Quite alarming. I know.

Re: Reversing the Flow through the Malt Pipe on 20lt BM

Sorry I didn't mean to suggest downgrade in a physical way. I was thinking the logical sense of making it work the same way as cheaper unit. 3 slotted bungs is good. A simple razor cut in them would keep them on. Simple and would enough lift you only need around 5mm The mod you suggest is (I think) ...

Re: Reversing the Flow through the Malt Pipe on 20lt BM

I can't say I disagree with that sentiment. Nicely put. They are 2 different systems and they do produce slightly different results. One of the reasons for over pumping on other units is it makes them easier and cheaper to manufacture. Pumping from underneath also minimises the need to sparge. Perha...

Re: Protein Rest : When to use it?

Thanks BigEd.

When I saw the question my first thought was "this'll start a fight". Its just one of those "no wrong or right way" questions. Like the 55c point.

Great link too

Re: It takes a long time to heat the water in BM200!

What Neils said + you could perhaps run it out to an IBC / 205l tank with its own heating element, to top it up while transferring?

Keep the heat/energy you already have. Think of it as a cleaning vessel - a small pump and hose would help too.

Are you CIP cleaning ?

Re: It takes a long time to heat the water in BM200!

TBH I would think that's about right. What does the manual say? What is the rating of the heating elements?

I would have an electrician install a contactor with a timer, so you can set it to be ready when you arrive.
