Re: My New Single Vessel Brewery

OK. So I brewed today again and... everything worked. I added a flow control ball valve to the 'pump box' outlet. Looks really tidy. Then I throttled it back until I was getting 1.2L per minute during recirculation. Mashed for an hour and the inner vessel volume remained around 1.5cm - 2cm above the...

Re: Elvis Juice!

Interesting! Worth experimenting with.

Mine is going down a treat now. I can only have one 330ml glass at a time though as it's a sensory explosion. I look forward to it at the end of a beery eve.

Re: My New Single Vessel Brewery

Lots of food for thought here boys. Thank you. My mind is at rest again. Maybe I had the pump running too fast on Sat. Would explain the grain bed compacting. With regards to overflow - Maybe a few holes near the top of the inner vessel would do the trick. I could put mesh over them to stop grain ma...

Re: My New Single Vessel Brewery

Damn. I'm now thinking that I have a bit of a design flaw. The grain became quite compact near the end of the mash. Is this down to not having a malt pipe? Will my plan to make two more holes make a difference with overflow/grain compacting? Any advice welcome! Damn... knew this was too good to be t...

Re: My New Single Vessel Brewery

Thanks all. Cerbera, a) regarding the malt pipe, what holes/slits are in the base? There is no malt pipe. Currently there is one 6cm hole in the centre and a false bottom sits over that. However, I'm planning on punching another two 6cm holes as there seemed to be bit of a threat of an overflow yest...

Re: My New Single Vessel Brewery

Sorry for sideways files. Click them and they should turn 'upright'. Does so in Chrome anyway. I brewed on her today and it went perfectly. Too perfectly actually... I found it all a bit disconcerting! So happy with it. Love how it looks and how it performs. 72% efficiency. Happy days!! Total cost w...
