Anybody here built a Randall?  Care to share your process?  What's the purpose of having 2 chambers?

Ingredients / 5.2 comments
« on: October 26, 2013, 05:19:30 PM »
Martin Brungard posted this on his Facebook account.  I hope he doesn't mind me reposting it here, but I wanted to have it archived where we could all find it.

"Here is a comment from noted brewing water expert, AJ DeLange about the conversation he had with the chemist from Five Star Chemicals regarding their 5.2 Stabilizer product.

"Tipped a few last night with the chemist who designed this product and was able to confirm that it is indeed a mix of phosphates (mono and di basic) that accounts for the presence of the malt phosphate. This is something I have long suspected and am pleased to have finally confirmed.

Good manners prevented me from pressing him on its efficacy and suitability relative to the statement on the label but his comments on it were basically that most brewers shouldn't use it/need it and that it was put together for a particular brewery that had variable source water and no desire to make any effort to track that variability."

Please spread the word that the 5.2 product is not needed or desirable for brewing."

General Homebrew Discussion / Sanitizer ingredients
« on: October 10, 2013, 04:01:19 PM »
I've been teaching a beginning homebrew class.  Last night, one of the guys in the class told me that he had a friend that worked for a restaurant supply store who had hooked him up with a no rinse sanitizer called  "Solution QA".  The active ingredients are n-alkyl (50% C14, 40% C12, 10% C16) dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride.  Anybody ever heard of this stuff or know anything about the ingredients?

Equipment and Software / The Right Stuff

For years, people have asked me about the braid I use in my cooler mash tun.  It seems like there are a lot of braids that don't work well, as evidenced by some of the kludges I've seen like putting a coil of wire in the braid.  I've always said that it shouldn't be necessary if you get the right braid, but I built mine so long ago that I couldn't recall what I used.  Well, I've been building mash tuns lately to document the procedure for the book and I have the answer!  What has been working perfectly for me is the Lasco brand Pro-Flex Stainless Braided faucet connector hose.  Part no. 10-0121 or 10-0321.  The only difference is the size of the compression fitting on it, and you cut that off anyway.

I just wanted to document this here so that in the future I can remember what the heck it is!

The Pub / Most breweries ever!
