Modifying a Maxi 210

Image

Obviously you need to put the STC probe in the water bath. Keep it away from the pump. I think I pulled the original one out and fed it down the small pipe IIRC.

Modifying a Maxi 210

I did mine, it was simple. Just look at the stat and put the switched pair through the STC’s cooling contacts.

The delay time is one of the 4 pre sets. The first is the control temp so it’s Pr 2,3 or 4.

Re: Black Mould? on the top sides of the fermenter

I get the same on mine, also some slight purple bits. I presumed it was some kind of nasty but nothing that could spoil as the beer turns it just fine.

Base grains

Minch pale for me as it’s the cheapest 25kg pale I can find. That makes up a minimum of 80% of the grist.

At 19.95 a sack I don’t bother with Maris anymore due to the saving over a 50L brew length.

Re: Sterilisation questions

PBW and star san combo for me. I just wish PBW was cheaper in small amounts as you have to buy a bucket full to get a decent discount.

Too much pressure?

What pump did you use to run this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro Hi Lee, I also have one of these for my half barrel and 7 gallon BME Chronicals. I use a Hozelock water butt pump and it does a fab job of cleaning, recirculating 8 litres or so of PBW solution. I hope that helps, as I note t...

Pump around to £100 mark



Hi Wally,

The Blichmann conversion kit. Slightly better flow and a lot easier to clean.

Beer Taps

If it’s a cheap push back to fill type it will need the spring I would have thought.

The perlick types have optional springs as pressure helps seals them.

Pump around to £100 mark

You can feather the speed a little as I do but if you go too slow the coupling slips. It’s better to throttle the outlet as they will run on a dead head all day long. Induction motors are super reliable if used within their spec. Nothing to wear out apart from bearings really. The Blichmann is the o...
