Kal-

I have one quick question for you. Since you're using the stainless steel table now, how did you mount the chiller and the pumps to the new brew stand?

Hi Chris!

The chiller is mounted using two size 8 x 5/8” metal screws into one of the reinforcing cross beams - see near the bottom of this page: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/wort-chiller?page=5

The pumps were never mounted to the table. I use the same wood stand as before, mentioned here: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/pumps?page=5
Only difference is that I painted it silver to match. You can see it in this video: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bdn5713BAtg/?taken-by=theelectricbrewery

Welcome to the forum!

Kal

So much for my normal attention to detail. I see you thought of everything and included it in the text. Thanks for the quick reply, I'll try and read closer next time!

Cheers!

No worries! There's a lot of text there and it's completely normal for skim and look at pictures mostly. I should probably throw a picture up to make it more obvious as you're definitely not the first one to ask. Cheers!

Hey Kal, I have a question about the Micromatic Stout Faucet. Their website says to not pull the faucet more than 45 degrees. Is that how you pour? Do you need to do a push back on the faucet at all at the end of your pour? With this 45 degree limitation, do you find that you can be the only one to pour form the faucet for fear of damaging the diaphragm? I suppose I could have called Micromatic with these questions, but wanted to go to you as a trusted and knowledgeable source Smile

I'm really not sure why the 45 degree limit exists. I've sometimes pulled all the way (and locked it) and sometimes not (where you have to hold it). Works both ways. I believe I used it for years pulling all the way, and then someone mentioned you weren't supposed to so now I try not to. You don't have to push back, at least I don't.

I wouldn't be concerned with others using them.

Kal

That's an interesting thing for them to say... I feel like every time I get something on nitro in a bar, they are pouring it with the handle at 90 degrees - forget about 45!
