Equipment and Software / 6 Gallon Glass Carboy for $30 Shipped
« on: May 22, 2012, 07:11:49 PM »
Amazon has a 6 gallon glass carboy for $30 shipped.  Availability on this is spotty.

For those interested, this just became available again...

Equipment and Software / Hop Pellets clogging fermenter dip tube
« on: January 06, 2011, 03:20:43 PM »
I ferment in a 10 gallon keg.  It works great most of the time.

I have three dip tubes cut off at various lengths.  I use a different length of dip tube depending on how much hop/trub material I believe will be in the fermenter.  Again, works well most of the time.

The last beer I made called for just over 6 ounces of dry hops.  I used my shortest dip tube.  I cold crashed and waited for the hops to settle.

As you can imagine from the title of this post, it didn't go well come racking time.  Clog after clog.  I finally did get the beer to transfer, but when I went to serve it, that keg clogged too.

So, I'm looking for a way to avoid this.  I'd rather not cut the dip tube even shorter.

My current best idea is to get a Better Bottle with a racking arm for these kinds of beers.  I've thought about a screen but from what I've read, these clog too with pellet hops.  I would really like to develop a technique to vary the height of the dip tube (and still transfer under pressure).  I recall a forum post that talked about a way to do this, but I have not been able to find that.

Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

Questions about the forum? / Why was the "I'm Sorry" thread deleted??
« on: August 13, 2010, 01:49:09 PM »
I'd like to know why BrewBall's "I'm sorry" thread was deleted.

I also asked a question in that threat that I'm genuinely interested in knowing the answer to.  What constitutes political discussion?  Is it only when a republican is mentioned??

I'm all for having boundaries but I think that they should be enforced uniformly.

Also just deleting threads that have dessention in them doesn't seem right.
