HLT upgrade7462 viewsAutomated HLT filling. This was done using a simple two stage controller. The sensors are home made as I couldn't find anything off the shelf. These were made up of 1/2 inch BPT nipples welded top and bottom with plastic end caps used in rural irrigation to electrically isolate the probes from the keg which acts as ground. These caps were boiled in an electric jug for 15 minutes to test for heat and they stood up well. The probes used were stainless steel screws and nuts. Corrosion and electrolysis can be a real problem with this sort of gear.

6715 viewsTurning a 60 litre Sankey keg into a 85 litre one. The need to brew triple batches to fill 3 corny kegs I found the 60 litre keg was a tad to small which didn't allow for evaporation and head room for hot break, this is how I approached the problem. I cut the middle out of a damaged keg scavenged from an apple orchard.Taz
Picture_044.jpg
5490 viewsI cut my existing Sankey boiler in half (gulp) then welded the bottom half to the salvaged keg, then finished the weld off inside grinding and polishing. I needed a torch in the bottom for this.Taz

5532 viewsAdd the top, weld into place grind and polish inside. Stainless Steel will rust if the surface is not polished smooth so a bit of work is needed to bring the welded areas up to a good finish. The end result was a good sized boiler at a cheap price.Taz

Orval Clone next to an Orval3006 viewsThis is a picture of an Orval Clone I have made next to a real Orval. Mine is a little darker and stronger (it boiled down further than I predicted as I fixed my brewery burner). Overall it is a darn good drop and has those farmhouse brett characters of the real thing. It should get better with a bit of age. My head isn't as dense on this photo as the real Orval but is improving the longer it sits in the bottle. YUM.bhami

Waxed Orval Clones2470 viewsI plan to keep about half of my Orval Clones to see how they age over the coming few years. To prevent oxygen getting in through the crown seal I have waxed them. bhami
