The beer robot lives! (my new electric brewery losses its virginity)

Posted by DMAC on December 30, 2014 at 12:30am 7 Comments

Kauri Road Brewery 2 final post – it's a wrap

Posted by Barry on December 8, 2014 at 9:07pm 23 Comments

Hey,

So after a wet run and autotune it was time. Time to brew and no more procrastinating.

I started contemplating this build nearly 2 years ago and starting collecting parts about a full year ago. It's been 19 months since I brewed at home.

Brew day on Sunday 7 December 2014 started really late, I had to pick up the kids from their grandparents and do some other stuff but in truth I was scared. Scared at how much more involved the process might be with 2 pumps…

Kauri Road Brewery 2.9

Posted by Barry on December 4, 2014 at 10:25pm 1 Comment

At long last.

Today the sparky came round and rewired my house switchboard. He also added a 32A supply and caravan outlet for the brewery.

Tonight was just a hot water run, autotuning the HLT PID and running both pumps and all hoses at 80degC.

Only 2 leaks, one at the outlet elbow…
