Just pulled the pin on an upgrade to my brewery, as anyone who has read my other thread is aware I have done a bit of BIAB and brew a little bit of beer as well as all grain Mashes for whiskey
Have been using the equipment I have to its limits and been sacrificing ease of use/efficiency because of it. Maxing out my batches at about 23L into the fementer and about 20L of drinkable or distillable product
New system is going to use my 50L milk can with an inkbird pid for my HLT ill be getting an adapter from Punkin when he is back from China for the triclamp drain to 1/2" BSp and then using a bsp to camlock fitting on top of that
I am getting a new 50L 304SS MLT
Have upgraded it to a triple layer bottom and a better false bottom, will also be insulating it with some clark rubber insulation (will lose less then 1C in an Hour)
That with a Blichman autosparge should really help my batch sparging
Boil kettle will be a 50L 304SS pot (Considering going to a 70L pot atm for added headspace)
And will be adding an extra 2200w element (Total heating power is 4400w)
Should do me 40L batches with 80-92% efficiency if I do it right Aiming of 80L in 8Hrs ready to ferment
Later on ill get another 50L HLT with Herms
Just wondering who else has a similar setup as well as documenting what im doing :)
I've also got enough grain coming to brew 600L of beer :)
Planning to do a few whisky batches as well :D
Gear should be ready around the 15th of July so hoping to get it around then.
