So, who's the first to incorporate one of these into their brewery?

Hadn't seen those. I'll bet somebody here jumps on one, for the outlet side of their RO system.

Edit - If you're committed to low O2 water, it would beat the hell out of preboiling.
The cheap ones have tens of milliliters per minute flow rates. At 20 ml/minute it would take 3 hours to process 1 gallon. You would need to think ahead to make your water.

Ok, then there's that!
Would it need to be stored in a vacuum evacuated container? Normal air will dissolve over the amount of time it takes to pull 10 gallons.

I can commit as long as I can brew on separate days.

I think I am leaning towards agreement with Dave. If the lemon character is strong enough to call it a lemon saison, enter as fruit beer.

I don't agree with the fruit beer has whole or puree argument. Plenty of beers, for better or worse, use extract.

SHV would be more like Major's beer made with kaffir lime leaves.

If you keg is truly leaking from the seam where the rubber meets the steel, it's pretty much toast. That means there is a leak below the rubber someplace and it is working its way out.

Did you buy the kegs from a reputable place?

Make an IPA and turn the lights off?

I kid, I kid.

I've seen various black IPAs made with sinamar, some worked well and others didn't. What are you doing in regards to the other specialty malts Denny?

I still want a spunding valve. Would be crazy helpful for over carbed beers

Plans in Experimental Homebrewing
The parts are a bit too high on Amazon right now. Monitoring the prices and will order when they bottom out again.

How are those that spund dealing with the schedule? Are you checking daily and then racking as soon as it hits your racking target?

My schedule isn't flexible enough for daily testing and I am sure those with family commitments are doubly hosed in that regard.

Those numbers aren't out of line. Are you noticing a scorched flavor at all?

I don't understand, but the best place for the probe is the output side of the tube. Is that where you are measuring?

Again, what is the wattage and watt density? You might be using more power than needed. This could be addressed by adding a method to limit the power, or by switching to a lower wattage element.

That looks like scorching. What is the wattage of your element? What is the watt density? Where are you measuring the mash temp?

I get that, i just feel the strict steps where one mistake ruins the effort isn't for me. I've had plenty of pour over coffee. It's fine, but not worth the ritual for me

It's that thousand different factors that makes me not won't to bother. It's like hipster pour over coffee. I'm sure it's great, but I don't need the stress.
That was in context to using copper not stainless.

My opinion is the fact that there are way too many steps and processes and voodoo and wishful thinking for me to want to attempt low oxygen brewing.

To all the PM users out there,

That guy has been MIA for a while. Life and stuff. You might have luck sending him a DM/PM.
