A question for the larger brewers out there (1BBL brewlength). What
size is the outlet grant on your kettle. How long does the chilling
require? I ask because I intend to take a 1" or larger outlet and
divide it into several 3/8" copper lines to chill in parallel (Mike
Zenters idea, thanks Mike). Any experience as to geometries and
sizing of the manifolds would be appreciated. One thing to remember
is that a 1" outlet with ball valve only gives about 1/2 to 3/4"
effective throughput due to ball valve construction. If anyone is
chilling in parallel, how long are the runs and what is the diameter
of the chilling lines. Thanks in advance.
