the only thing I would need besides that is a french drain in the concrete just in front of the brew table so I can just spray and clean everything in place, great job

long and short of it, 4.25 gallons of boil off seems WAY excessive!

Tungsten mentioned he went from 8.25 to about 4.5 gallons, so 3.75 gallons boil off. Still high if he was only boiling for an hour. I do 1.9 gallons/hour myself.

Sorry it's been a while since I checked in here, but it is not 3.75 gallons of boil off. Also making up a part of that is:

Cooling shrinkage
Loss to chiller/pump (I recirculate and getting the rest out of the chiller is difficult)
Loss to bottom of pot

When you factor all that in plus the fact that I only do 90 minute boils, I pretty much end up at 2 gallons/hour.

Thanks! I wish I had considered a drain when we built the house in 2016, but unfortunately I didn't. Plus I didn't know the location just yet. Then again, after brewing in a garage for years I have somewhat perfected how to minimize spills, and cleaning the equipment is easy now that I have a sink in the brew area!

Quick update: I finished a minor project that had been on my brewery to do list for years. Nothing earth shattering but still something that'll be really helpful and can't come off the way tape or marker does.

Ok, that sounds more normal and is pretty much bang on with my boil-off rate.

Little trick i figured out to help reduce leftovers in the pump+chiller (i use a duda plate chiller) is to push it out with O2. I just hold my O2 line up to the kettle outlet and crank it up on high until it pushes all the leftover wort out.
