Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Attenuation

It's also the effect that beer has on the brewer. If I have four home brews, I am 50% attenuated. A few more and I am snoring on the couch.
You made a funny.  :D

Check HomeBrewTalk forum and search your subject.
They are very technical in that kind of way.

Does not the BCS have forum on their own?

very pretty.

Planing on brewing Sunday.
I did not decide what it will be yet.

For some reason I was thinking the certification was 5 years.
I think it is aluminium vs. steel tanks.
Quick call to AirGass will be great source of this info.

Harbour Freight sells some strong magnets.
Look for Rare Earth Magnets.
Something like this:

These particular magnets are pretty small but they have also larger once.

Whew! Nice...

Had no idea. Seriously. The IC thread I was looking at those pics. Man. A 7bbl system?

Are you gonna keg or bottle? Both?

It is about 6 BBL usable volume.
Yeah that heat exchanger is quite impressive.

We will be kegging and bottling into growlers.
We will make growlers returnable (with deposit) as we could reuse them.

And why are they all on one side?
Are you asking about why elements are together on one side Instead of spread across the kettle?
Liquid movement.
This should promote rolling boil.

Would have never thought of that at first but the idea is brilliant and simple and efficent.

Nice work and i may have to make a trip out there when it opens up.
You are more then welcome to stop by even before we open.
It is one big A** homebrew system  :D

Nice install Thirsty Monk!  How many feet of copper is that?

It is about 50 ft of 1 inch soft tubing.
Not very practical for home use  ;D
