Wanted: leeky 2 inch tri clamp butterfly valve

Started Aug 14 0 Replies

Hi Team,I currently building a reflux / gin still. One of the ideas I'm thinking about I would use a butterfly valve. If it sealed correctly it would give me the ability to create a high pressure…Continue

Yeast for pressure fermenting

Started Oct 31, 2017 0 Replies

Anyone got advice about yeast strains to use for pressure fermenting? Are there special considerations for strain selection when under pressure. I've been using 090 lately but  I'm wondering if its…Continue

Wanted: leeky 2 inch tri clamp butterfly valve

Hi Team,I currently building a reflux / gin still. One of the ideas I'm thinking about I would use a butterfly valve. If it sealed correctly it would give me the ability to create a high pressure steam bomb (if I'm really stupid and close it at the same time as another valve), my solution to this problem is to just rip out the seals or file down an edge. The small leak just creates a tiny bit of unnessessary reflux (while vapor infusing gin which is the only time I would ever close it) this is…See More

Cain Harland replied to Thies's discussion fermentation temperature control
"So there are 4 things that you can set on an STC1000 F1 - Set tempF2 - Differential  - how far out from the set temp you need to be before hot or cold will come on - I set mine to 0.5c - you want this small enough to avoid getting to far away…"

"Cascade, Ekuanot, Mosaic and Simcoe look like they are also being brought in by NZ Hops as LupuLN2 and I believe the US hop import is due around mid-March. Not sure if any will be available to breweries and stores who haven't pre-ordered it,…"

LupuLN2 wanted

After drinking Magic Dust and 1 brew of my own with LupuLN2 I'm sold especially for dry hops. Whats not to love, more lupulin goodness and less vegital crap to soak up my valuable beer and make it taste like grass. Is anyone in NZ selling any that isn't Citra? Not that Citra isn't the best hop ever but a bit of variety is always good.See More

"Mixed ferment. I was thinking primary together till dry hop time then rack 1/2 to a keg with Brett and dry hop the other 1/2 as usual. I read somewhere that Brett is more interesting if it has some of the by products of a Sac fermentation to chew up…"

David R replied to Cain Harland's discussion Timeframes for a bret IPA
"Interesting, are you going to try fermenting one entirely with the Brett or stick with the mixed ferment? I guess splitting a batch as you plan to do will give you a good idea of how much of an impact the secondary ferment with Brett is having on…"

"I thought I might follow up on this in case any one is interested. Its turned out to be a great success in fact probably the best beer I made last year (OK maybe second after a the milk stout). I infected a second IPA with it too just because I…"

"Yeah Brendon. Its turning out alright, I tried out some a couple of weeks ago when it seemed to be slowing down on the pressure build up. It was a bit weird. I put a 1.25L plastic beer bottle full in the fridge with a carbonation cap and it changed…"

Brendon replied to Cain Harland's discussion Timeframes for a bret IPA
"Sounds like a success! If you end up bottling it, beware bottle bombs as it could still produce plenty of CO2 over a period of time as the brett chews through those more complex carbs... Champagne bottles and open one regularly, perhaps..."

"I think I will leave it at least another week and have another sample, hopefully it will dry out a little more, but yeah it was quite drinkable"

"Interesting, glad it's worked out ok!"

"So weirdly pressure stabilized at about 7psi so I took a sample and refractometer reading is exactly the same but the taste has dried out a bit and after a quick force carbonation its tasting pretty good"

Cain Harland replied to Hutzpah's discussion Fermentation fridge
"The heat pad will be good but the placement of you're probe will be quite important. That is if you are measuring air temperature, or even the top of the beer, the beer at the bottom next to the pad may be warmer. I have an old tire tire tube…"

Cain Harland replied to Hutzpah's discussion Fermentation fridge
"Sounds like the STC-1000 I use should be fine. The fridge and heat source would both be well under 10 amp. A standard wall outlet in NZ is 10amp so you need a special outlet to run anything that draws more, like an oven."

Cain Harland replied to Kiwis's discussion Home Brew Method & Results
"Each yeast has an ideal temp range. In winter you are probably on the cold side for ale yeast. My point was really going above ideal is worse than being under. But if you want to make better beer set up to heat and cool so you can be at ideal…"

Cain Harland replied to Kiwis's discussion Home Brew Method & Results
"All those are good suggestions, temp control being the big one. I would say cooling being more important than heating, a few degrees cold = slow fermentation, a few degrees warm = yuck flavors. Many of us have our fermenter in an old fridge with a…"
