Subject: Pumps, Revisited
Date: 1990-01-22 00:17:36 GMT
In HOMEBREW Digest #1 (volume II, perhaps?), a gratifying number of
folks steered me towards small, inexpensive, drill-driven pumps to
recirculate water through my wort chiller. I am grateful to one and
all, but a chance observation yesterday made the water-saving
question suddenly less imperative. While chilling a batch of IPA, I
suddenly realized that perfectly good steaming-hot water was coming
out of it, and by golly, I still had stuff to sterilize!! So, all
utensils into the lauter tun/hops back, along with some bleach, for
a nice, hot bath. After the requisite time, I drained the still-hot
solution into the carboy. Normally I would have used a seperate
batch of hot water for these chores, but now I'm getting a second
use from the cooling water, and recovering some of the heat, as
well! I'm tickled.
By the way, new security measures have been taken here that are so
effective that even I can't use my own login, so it'll be a spell
before I'm able to see anything later than HBD 1, though I can still
post "in the blind" from another machine. I'll miss you all, and
hope to get this resolved before I've fallen too far behind.
