Yeast and Fermentation / How much head space in fermenter to much
« on: June 10, 2013, 05:22:00 PM »
Bought some new open top barrels and they were supposed to be 18 gal. I thought these would be perfect for fermenting 16 gallons with 15.5 finished. Turns out the barrels have 24 gal capacity so I have 8 gal head space. I even added 2 extra gallons into boil to end up with 18 gal and still leaves  6 gal head space.

So here is my system. Paid $40 for the hot water tun, $18 for fittings, Mash tun was $12 on sale, $20 fittings,
$109 for 25 gal boil kettle at All burners are turkey frier, one I had and cant remember how much paid for second. Steel table is just my welding table that I already had. Chiller is home made from copper tubing I bought on clearance. The most expensive thing I bought was my Barley Crusher $114.50 Then found a gear reduction motor at surplus for $15 and spent $18 on drive gears and sprockets. Yesterday I scored 3 18 gal food grade open top barrels for $20 ea.
What do you think for less than $500 total.  Have more than that into cabinets and my sink
