Hands On: More Beer’s Inline Thermometer + Whirlpool Chiller Time Trial

Here’s a look at MoreBeer’s inline thermometer setup a try.  This is an all stainless setup, with stainless quick disconnects that allows you to place a thermometer inline at any point in your system.

The heart of this unit is a Fermentap Dial Thermometer


Top View.  You can see the all stainless construction and the stainless quick disconnects


Thermometer Calibration Screw

I found the inline thermometer to be well built.  It also served it’s purpose well.  It allows you to check the temperature at a specific point in your process.  I think because liquid is moving past this thermometer, you’re getting a great picture of what the temperature actually is at any given point.

I used this to monitor my chill progress.  Video…


My apologies that this video is a bit shaky at points.  You can watch it for 9 minutes and 12 seconds or just realize that it took 9 minutes and 12 seconds to get to pitching temp.

My batch was about 5.25 Gallons.  It took 9 minutes and 12 seconds to get to 68 degrees.  Add a couple more seconds on from turning the hose on to starting the video.  Ground water temp was 57.7 degrees.  I’d say those are dandy results.

Results will vary based on groundwater temp.  In my initial trials, I was able to get 5.25 gallons of boiling water down to pitching temp in 5 minutes.  Of course, water is easier to chill than wort.

My setup is a 50′ copper immersion chiller (similar to this one) with a recirculation arm along with a this high flow March pump.

Beer & Wine Filtering Kit for Ball Lock Setups – $42.99

1548

Product Description – Here  Use coupon code BEERDEAL to get this discount.

About: The beer filter gets installed inline between two ball lock Cornelius kegs using CO2 pressure to push the beer out of the full keg through the filter and into the clean keg. This kit is designed to filter out particles down to 1 micron, which is considered fine filtration. At one micron the beer will be clear after filtration provided you do not have a starch haze. Filtering also accelerates the conditioning process to just a few days. Most of our customers who use the filtering kit find that they; keg beer, chill it overnight, filter the next day, carbonate, and are drinking clear beer in a couple days. For those who want to bottle beer without sediment, filtering combined with the use of a counter pressure bottle filler will allow you to put crystal clear, carbonated beer into bottle. The beer filtering kit comes with one 10″ filter housing, a 1 micron 10″ spun poly sediment filter, fittings for connection to the filter housing, 3′ of beverage line, clamps, and two beverage out ball lock quick disconnects.  [keep reading]

More about Torpedo Kegs

from MoreBeer… “Set your sights on a brand new Torpedo Keg! The sleek all-stainless design represents a new era of homebrew kegs. With features like welded stainless handles, the ability to stack with fittings in place, amazing quality and a great price we think these kegs will become the standard by which other kegs are measured.

Quality First
The first thing we at MoreBeer! check out is interior welds. We’ve spent a decade rejecting kegs made overseas because the interior welds have never met our standards. If a weld is not perfect and shows evident burn marks along with nooks and crannies it cannot be sanitized effectively. Torpedo kegs are laser welded and exceed our standards for quality. The weld quality is possible because these are the first homebrewing kegs made by an ISO certified commercial keg manufacturer.

Cool Features
Torpedo Kegs were designed to stack with quick disconnects in place which is a cool feature for some brewers who have vertical space in their refrigerator. We also like the rolled stainless steel handles. They are comfortable to grab and will never come off like some rubber handles can over time. In and Out is etched on the keg posts for easy identification which is very handy when you are connecting lines in a refrigerator or kegerator and trying not to make a mistake. The lid fits very tightly which is great for sealing, however we found that having some CIP Keg Lube film on hand to apply to the gray keg lid feet is a good idea.”
