Brew Day Sheets

Re: Quck connects

It's a 12 plate Zilmet and appears to have ports that are 1" and 3/4" across the whole thread. Looks very similar to the last picture on your ebay link even down to the sky blue plastic caps.

Quck connects

I tried searching this section for recommendations for quick connects to run a plate chiller but failed to find any. I came across someone mentioning Hozelock. I am thinking of using a tap outside my cellar/brewery which has a hose leading to our pond which needs regularly topping up so as not to wa...

One other thing to be aware of is how flat the bottom of the pot is, below a certain surface area some hobs may think it is a small...

Although I haven't committed to all grain yet (still assembling the kit), I have been thinking about what I will brew and am keen to experiment quite a lot but don't want to regularly end up with 5 gals. of something I don't...
