Looks great! Thanks for the camlock link . .
You are welcome. I found the folks there to be very helpful.
that's pretty killer wayne
what are you using as a pickup tube?
I'm not quite sure what you mean. The kettle outlet is an elbow pointing down with a close nipple screwed into it.
Here is a picture of the kettle with a small trub pile after brewing a Blond Ale
Very nice indeed!
How do you clean the system after brewing?
The grain in the MLT is dumped then the MLT is rinsed and mechanically scrubbed out with PBW and a ScotchBrite scrubbie.
The kettle gets the same treatment. Every other brew I use some Five Star Acid 5 in the kettle to remove beer stone build up.
The CFC gets warm PBW pumped through it in a recirculation loop until the liquid changes color. I dump the darker liquid and recirculate a bit more. I them rinse the CFC in both directions. I sanitize my fermenter, pump and hoses by recirculating Sani-Clean through them during the time it takes to mash.
