Equipment and Software / Re: Inline Aeration Setup Questions/Concerns
« on: December 19, 2016, 04:23:56 PM »

With the wand, I can set a timer and a flow rate and have more consistent results. As you said - simple.

do you have a good ratio of flow rate/time/batch size or something of the like?

I detail it here:

danke

i've decided to forgo using an inline and will just use a low flow and start to experiment with it and find what works.

thanks for the reassurance and data points, fellas!

yeah, I agree with you guys - seems like its cool but likely to cause me many more problems.  I think i'll just stick with the wand I've had for years - Bryan I just picked up a 20# O2 tank and ordered the same regulator you have from Williams.

Hopefully Santa brings me a DO meter, and if not, I'll likely be my own Santa

Equipment and Software / Inline Aeration Setup Questions/Concerns
« on: December 19, 2016, 09:37:21 AM »
Looking at this: https://www.morebeer.com/products/stainless-inline-oxygenation-assembly.html 

Thoughts on an inline aeration stone?  I currently use a stone/wand combination, but the coolness factor of inline is intriguing to me.  My biggest concerns would be that I recirculate through my chillers (2 ganged SS CFC) during the last 20-30 min to sanitize the chillers -

1). if I don't have the oxygen hooked up, isn't the wort flowing through going to leak out the valve connect to the stone

2). is the stone going to get clogged rather quickly with the proteins and hop matter circulating through?

I imagine that inline aeration is probably more effective/efficient that a wand, but these two concerns have me thinking I should stick with simple?

sometimes when I feel my beer tastes different (i.e. not as good , I take a few days/week off from having any and am amazed at how great it tastes when I go back to it.

beware too that Crisp Chocolate is more like 450L too - gives more of a dark/bitter chocolate flavor than a milk chocolate flavor like some of the American maltsters do which are more in the 300L.

I like your recipe and my Oso-Oso brown is similar, although I split my chocolate 2% to Crisp regular Chocolate and 2% to Pale Chocolate.

Looks like an exact copy of theelectricbrewery.com. I'm in the process of building one out myself. I'm using Blichmann kettles that I picked up used for half price.

I'm very happy with my build from theelectricbrewery.com.  Been using it for 4 years now.

Brewing my Pils again this weekend but this time with Saphir to finish instead of HMF.  Hope it turns out close to the one currently on tap.  It's be far and away my best Pils ever.

Very cool guys. Can't wait to pour over it when I get a chance. Thanks again for sharing and helping with the baby steps for us newbies!!

yes - +1 to that.  I unfortunately can't do all the steps, but can do a lot of them and perhaps that will incrementally help.
