Pimped My Fridge

Unread postby MonsieurBadgerCheese » Sun Apr 09, 2017 9:25 am

Greenhouse heater in the bottom. Fan in top. Temperature controlled by Inkbird ITC308 (temperature probe inside thermowell in Chronical). Fridge thermostat relocated to external wall of fridge (room temp) to 'trick' it into cooling as low as zero, if necessary, for cold crashing (previously minimum temperature was 5 deg C).

How do you transfer the wort from BM to the connical?

I am considering to get an SS connical+frig and I am hoping that I don't have to move a connical full of wort.

I am looking to do closed transfer from connical to keg so the connical will be empty when removing it from frig to clean. I am also think of using a pump connected to the BM spigot to move the wort to the connical. I don't know of there is anything else I should consider.
