Those will work.
they don't always dissolve completely. I've seen some bottles, a year after the fact, that still had some chunks from those capsules floating about
Even though I haven't bottle conditioned in 7 plus years, I want to with belgian golden strongs. Maybe I'll pick up a ss brew bucket to use as my bottling bucket. I just need to keep drinking the shit out of Duvel for the bottles.
Anyone have a good RO system at home they would recommend?
I'm looking to put one of these in: SpectraPure w/ Automatic Flush 90GPD
With a Utilitech 52-Gallon Vertical Pressure Tank and Single Tank Liquid Replenisher
Disagree, I love my 2 B3 14 gal conicals. If you do 10 gallon batches they work well and it's easier to harvest yeast etc... I've blown out my L5-S1 disk twice, and I still use carboys but I pay for it with pain. The SS Brew bucket isn't really a conical, just a better carboy.
I gotta guess TNGabe is saying no to the brewbucket, which I agree with. The professional standard for fermentation is a SS conical fermenter, be hard to say that's a bad decision aside from the price tag.
I love my speidel fermenters!
I've used them multiple times with no issue, but plastic scares me.
Homebrew conicals are mostly poorly made POS IMO.
Which ones are you referring to?
The biggest fault on them is the gasket between the body and lid. I wish there was a better design on them. At least for the morebeer, but they hold pressure, you just have to know their limitations. And I'd far rather deal with that than carboys.
Curious as to what way you feel they are poorly made? I realize SS brewtech uses thinner metal vs Blichmann. Design, craftsmanship, or material?
Don't have a clue. The two or three I've seen including Blichmann offer a pretty limited increase in functionality compared to a better bottle for 30 times the price.
OMG, how have I never seen these before? And the dryhopping filters! Must have!
I love my ssbrewtech shit. Can you make great beer in a bucket? Yeah but I like the gear. I also think it is fairly priced.
I'm intrigued by the heat transfer coil in that fermenter. How do you make use of it in practice? Looks like you're still cooling your wort in the kettle, so in practice how are you using it for fermentation temperature control?
