Pledge: Brewing Pump and Piping

From London Hackspace Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Currently we operate a three tiered brewing setup using gravity to feed the vessels. This is rather cumbersome, requiring lots of space, setup and heavy lifting.

I'd like to buy the required pump, silicon hosing, taps and quick disconnects to allow us to have all 3 vessels on a single flat table. The goal being to eventually build a flat workbench (box steel frame?) for the tuns.

We can start with one pump and consequently re-use the hoses as we won't be able to mash out whilst sparging. eg. HLT->Pump hose can be re used for Mash->Pump. Likewise Pump->Mash(no end fitting), can be used for Pump->Boil
