We are proud to bring the world's most complete homebrewing program to the Windy City, and this year's program promises to be our best ever. Our Advanced Homebrewing Course instructional team of Ray Daniels, Chris Graham, Randy Mosher and Chris White will once again lead homebrewers through 5 days of classroom instruction and hands-on activities that will take students from basic homebrewing to understanding the full range of practices employed by award-winning brewers.

Date: Wed, 21 Apr 2010 09:53:44 -0500 (CDT) From: slaycock at discoverynet.com Subject: Matt's thoughts on a grainger pump Matt asks about a diaphragm pump for transferring brew. My first thought Matt is whether the diaphragm area can be completely void of any air pockets to keep from the oxidation problem which can occur during transfer. Also, as far as a pressurized air source you could use C02 from a 20# cylinder if you had to. I know its expensive and the CFM or air volume required to activate the pump may be way too high for C02 to be feasible, but we do have a pressure source with our C02.

These pumps tend to really pulse their flow and its not all that gentle. A better recommendation would be to find a Peristaltic pump. They do pump with a much more even action and flow and also are self priming. I don't have one, but have used many of these pumps for groundwater sampling. I understand that they can be expensive. Be sure to get one that has variable speed so that the pumping rate can be varied to the task and can be started slow and sped up. Martin Brungard Indianapolis, IN Return to table of contents
