I am brewing less and in the process of downsizing. I am selling my system as a turnkey electric brewery. My brewery was most recently detailed in this post here. If you are interested, especially if you are located somewhere in Southern or Southwestern Ontario, please reach out to me here.
In the process of planning the revisions detailed in part 3, I remembered that with my next brewery update, I had wanted to implement low oxygen brewing principles. This meant going back and adding a couple more design goals.
After a small tweak, I was able to get my idea of RIMS+loop to work basically as I envisioned it in a water test. A ball valve controlling the loop flow rate more linearly (compared to the butterfly valve used in my first revision) proved to be essential.
I’ve made some progress with the design changes I detailed in post 1 of this series. I was able to implement the design, but in testing, it failed to give me the result I was hoping for. It has informed a revised design that I hold hope for working, however.
