Recirculating in the mash tun! For my home brewing mash tun I use a Blichmann 20 Gallon Boiler Maker Brew Kettle with the Blichmann false bottom. I use a home brewing march pump that then recirculates my wort through a digital RIMS unit that I made which maintain the mash temp for me. Since I am brewing in a stainless steel kettle and not an insulated cooler, I need to regulate the mash temperature. During the 60 minute mash process I constantly have the wort circulating which helps clear it as well as boosts efficiency by circulating the hot wort (typically at 151F ) over the grain bed. I use the MoreBeer Ultimate Sparge Arm for my wort recirculation . Is is the best sparge arm that I have ever used and never jams up!
For today is project I welded up a old decommissioned 5 gallon brewery keg and made myself a new home brewery stool with an adjustable height seat.
I had bought a cheap stool for the base materials and cut it up to be used for parts. The items did not fit together perfectly so there was a good deal of cutting, grinding, welding and finishing. All in the project took about 3 hours but I am happy with the results. Having the ability to adjust the height on the seat comes in pretty handy depending on what project I am working on. The additional legs around the base of the keg adds some stability to the stool in case one of my friends has had a few too many!
The tools that I used to make my brewery stool were a mig welder, grinder, hack saw / cut saw, wire brush, hammer and a little sand paper for finishing. If you would like to make your own brewing throne, brewery stool, keg stool or keg seat and have any questions, please feel free to ask or leave a comment. I am always happy to help out!
Wrapping up brew day! Brewed something that I am calling an American Oktoberfest Ale. If it does not come out tasting terrible I will be happy to post the recipe for anyone who might be interested in it!
