What are your cheap homebrew strategies? [R]

What do you do that is maybe a little outside the norm because you don’t want to drop more money on new equipment or you’re looking to save money where you can?

For instance, my kettle has a 7 gal capacity, which is too small for my 6.5-7 gal pre-boil volume (without a boil over or watching it like crazy, ready to cut the flame at any moment). Instead of buying a new kettle, I keep about a gallon of wort to the side while the wort in my kettle gets to a boil. Once I feel comfortable adding more, I’ll add that gallon to the kettle little by little throughout the boil.

I found heating things up can be done relatively cheaply, but cooling down can be more expensive. For heating above ambient I have used an Ice Cube cooler with an aquarium heater. You can get by using the temperature controller on the heater, but eventually you'll want to invest in a proper thermostat like the Inkbird. Put the carboy in the cooler, put in water and set the heater. As long as ambient temperature is lower than your target temperature this will keep it nice and steady. The additional water will be enough thermal mass to prevent any rapid temperature changes. I also eventually bought a cheap aquarium pump to keep the water circulating so there aren't hot spots.

So I know usually atos are protected with relays and I know usually they use 12 volt supplies, at least the low end ones do. So out of curiosity, what if I get a small USB powered pump (so 5v) and use the float switch. It isnt 12 volt or 120. Any thoughts?

I made one using a tiny pump from amazon. Just spliced it and added the float switch. Ran it for a year with no issues.

You will need a pid temperature controller, water pump, and heating unit, as well as some basic things (a bit of sheathed wire, things to cut and strip it, screwdriver, electrical tape) to wire everything up. The controller and heater can be substituted for cheaper components. You should also get a resistance thermometer (search on ebay, it's like $1) to get higher accuracy than a thermocouple.

Circulation/filtration question [R]

Aug. 14, 2018

My 10 gallon is very heavily planted, and I love that, but I'm a little concerned that the plants might be limiting flow and filtration. Stocking is at 76% according to aqadvisor. Right now I have an Aquaclear 20 and was wondering if it'd help to upgrade to a 30 or 50? Are there other ways to improve circulation in a small tank?

Nope. Just needs power. This is the one I use.

Just FYI, never run it outside of the water; it must be submerged when plugged in.

I’ve had a few grows now in my little 2x3 tent, getting about 6 oz from it. I wanted to do something bigger. My friend came over and in a couple hours and $200 threw up this room so I can lock the door and keep it secure so its legal. This gave me the ability to have a much larger 5x5 tent.

One plant, strain is casey jones, one of my favorites. Next time I think i am going to find a strain called duct tape, but its really hard to find so I may not get lucky.

I use 1120 actual watts in LEDS, I am hoping to get 20z from this grow.

The automated water system was way cheaper than I anticipated, and actually works pretty well. I might try blumats for my next grow, but so far I am happy with this set up.

Misters and tubing: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071KKZ543/ref=ohauidetailpageo05s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The misters I took out a little plastic piece in the nozzle so its really just sorta squirting, there wasn’t enough pressure for a mist, but the flow is weak, at about a gallon per 15 minutes, so I set the pump on a timer to run twice a day for 15 minutes. I might tweak this to more after I improve my run off situation a little bit.

Lazy growing: Ebb and flow hydroponics [R]

July 4, 2018

Hey guys. I've been messing around with hydroponics over the last few years, and with the post on the front page about watering while on vacation I figured it was a good time to do a quick write-up on how to turn your spacebucket or tote into a flood table (ebb and flow hydroponics). Flood tables are a great intro to hydroponics because its a hands-off and low-tech method and plants remain movable.

flood and drain kit

drill-bit thing

installed

Connect your pump. The bigger tube is the return back to the reservoir. The water level will never run higher than the bottom of the return fitting, even if you let it run for an hour. Here it is filled.

Your plants will suck the water up from the bottom of their pot, just get a timer, and flood multiple times per day. I use coco and ran mine for 3 periods of 10 minutes at a time. I changed my water reservoir every 2-3 weeks or so. No need for an air-stone either as the water recirculates going back down.

Here is a youtube video to give you some more information.

Question about ATO alarm and the turning off the return pump during feeding. [R]

11 months, 3 weeks agorussell_m posted submission on ReefTank.
June 28, 2018

So, I just grabbed an ATO system (the Hydor ATO) with a generic 80GPH pump and some tubing. Hoping to get an ATO set up for my 75G - just had one question about the logistics.

The Hydor system in particular uses a low, high, and ALARM bench-marker to trigger the pump on and off. Looks like this. Plan to have a resevoir next to the tank, the ATO in the return section of my sump, and the line from the reservoir running up to my display's overflow (to help combat siphoning).

My question is... Everytime I feed I shut down my return pump and my sump usually fills with an extra ~2 inches of water. This is just going to trigger that alarm every single time eh? Does anyone else have a method to combat this or tips on how to get around it?

11 months, 3 weeks agorussell_m posted comment on ReefTank.
June 28, 2018

This is the one I grabbed. Like I said super generic, but I really only need it to do one thing, and if I get a year out of it, $8 is a pretty reasonable replacement cost. Looks like it is AC, though, so being constantly turned off and on like that will probably affect the parts. Maybe only running a very short amount of time each day would help with that.

Removing oil with sous-vide? [R]

1 year, 4 months agobziddy posted submission on Bowling.
Jan. 31, 2018

Been digging through threads about DIY ball de-oiling, and haven't seen this done anywhere else, so I figure to post here to see if anyone else has tried to sous-vide their ball.

Equipment: * Hammer Black Widow Dark Legend * Anova Sous Vide Cooker * Rubbermaid 14L Toughneck bucket

Procedure: Submerge ball, add a few squirts of dishwashing liquid, cook at 125F overnight.

By morning the water was a dingy gray, but the ball was suck-oil-from-your-skin tacky. Rolled a few practice games that evening, and couldn't believe how well it worked; it felt as close to new as I can remember. Can't wait for league night!

I ran the sous vide cooker through a fresh water + dishwashing liquid cycle afterward to (hopefully) remove any residual oil. It seems to have worked, and any food would be cooked in a bag so there shouldn't be any contamination.

Thoughts?

Jan. 31, 2018

OR....this is a good idea....

Get a rubbermaid tub, fill it up with water, put your circulator in that with no ball/soap. Get it up to temp, put the ball in a 5 gallon bucket inside the tub with water from the tub, soap, and a cheap fish tank water pump. Kind of like you cook a creme brulee, but cook a bowling ball. When the water in the bucket gets gunky, toss the water, wipe the ball, replace the water in the bucket with water from the surrounding tub and refill the tub to replace the water you just put in the bucket. Keep doing that. You only ever run clean water through your Circulator -- and the gunky soap/water goes through your cheap fishing pump.

This one would do the trick: https://www.amazon.com/VicTsing-Submersible-Aquarium-Fountain-Hydroponics/dp/B00EWENKXO/ref=sr15?ie=UTF8&qid=1517429961&sr=8-5&keywords=fish+tank+water+pump

I'd like to put a small pump like this one into a standard small plastic basin like that.
The basin will be filled by rain water.
When there is enough water in the basin, I'd like the pump to start and transfer the water in a tank.
I didn't find so far any cheap way of controlling the pump. And any pump with the sensor included is way too big and too expensive.
Would you have any suggestion?

if you're going to do herbs and what not then you're going to want to make a bell siphon. It's flat out black magic lol basically, the water will fill at the same rate but once the water level hits a point, all the water is sucked out. you need that because herbs can't just have their roots sitting in water 24/7 unlike lettuce. I think this is a great starter video for the general idea of how things work. The hard part about tank aquaponics is that you really don't want a lot of weight just sitting right on top of tanks. I've seen a ton of people do it on /r/aquaponics but idk, it seems like a disaster in the making and tends to not look nice (although I'm a hypocrit for saying so lol my set up isn't exactly classy but it was more proof of concept because I wanted to see it working in person). so what I would do if I were you is find a grow box that you want and then build it as a shelf above the tank so you're not applying extra pressure to the class itself. Then you can get yourself a small water pump (this is the one I got. it's about the size of my palm), some hosing and you should be on your way :) sorry I'm not that great at tips or tricks. it depends a lot on where you want things, what you want to spend, ect. Are you planning on fancies or single tails? Typically they recommend slightly over stocked tanks so like I would do 4-5 fancies in a 55gal for a proper aquaponics but a 50gal is a bit small for single tails.

3 years, 9 months agoSept. 9, 2015

I have watched a few tutorials and read a few posts about getting started. Now that I'm feeling almost ready to build my first system I am looking for tips specific to my plans.

I am planning to buy a 10 gallon 10" x 20" aquarium to use for my fish. From there I will buy a plastic tote and install a bell siphon, housing the whole thing on a metal rack shelf (with wheels if budget allows me to get fancy). For a 10 gallon fish tank of goldfish, how do I do the math to figure out...

How many gallons per hour do I need to be cycling?

How many plants can my system support?

Which size plastic tubing do I need?

How much horsepower will my pump need to cycle water?

I am considering using a sump tank as well but I know with the smaller systems it isn't totally necessary. I am also considering supplementing the air supply in the tank with a bubbler. The system will probably live in my attic so it will as have a water heater to keep the fish alive and a grow light to keep the plants happy. Anything else i'm forgetting?

Thanks already for your help!

If heavily planted filtration will probably take care of itself if there's only shrimp in it... water circulation may help move nutrients to all the plants better though. You could simply use an air stone to provide a bit of circulation. You could also try a very small powerhead like this one which I have in a 9g tank: http://www.amazon.com/VicTsing%C2%AE-Submersible-Aquarium-Powerhead-Hydroponic/dp/B00EWENKXO -- but even with flow turned all the way down you will still want to probably deflect the current with that and maybe wrap the intake with some sponge/foam material. I do notice this powerhead gets a bit warm.

I made this chamber to control my fermentation temperatures, inspired by Adit's foam model. I use an aquarium pump from the left cooler to cool the chamber, and an aquarium heater on which I disabled the thermostat to heat. I don't like the model I bought, so I won't link it. It is insulated by readily available foam insulation. The major difference from Adit's is use of a siphon to move warm water into the cold cooler, rather than having to cut into the ice chest. This makes it possible to use the ice chests for other things.

It holds temperature pretty well. I fermented in it a couple weeks ago, and I'm kettle souring a gose in it right now, and the temps have been stable all night!

I have been using my CFC for about a year now and I'm actually beginning to regret the purchase. While it works really well (cools me form boiling to ~60F in ~20 mins) It is a HUGH pain to get set up (about an hour). Between running hoses, getting it cleaned, sanitized, etc... I'm not ready to give up yet though.... So my next idea is get rid of the hose water and recirculate and bucket of ice water through it. I am already recirculating my wort though using another pump, so I would need to buy another pump specifically for this. Not looking to spend too much money, just something simple to pump cold water through the chiller... Any suggestions on a cheap pump capable of this?

It did not push enough water though and ended up taking about an hour to chill my 6 gals of wort. So I didn't save any time... yet. The one I purchases was 80 GPH, I see that OSU_CSM had a 200 GPH one. Do you think that is sufficient to go through 25' of a CFC? Should I look for a bigger one?

Using a technique I found on here to use a beer cooler for Sous-Vide cooking, I cooked two beautiful cuts of steak: 1 - 8 oz, 22 day dry aged ribeye; and 1- 8 oz prime tenderloin. Here's how they turned out:

https://imgur.com/a/PGl1U

I simply salted and peppered the steaks and placed them in the zip lock bags. In the bags I added 6 sprigs of fresh thyme, crushed garlic, and some basting oil. Then I heated water in a large pot to 140 degrees (I had to do it three times to get enough water). Then I added the bags to the cooler. After an hour in 140 degree water a quick sear to both steaks and I was in heaven.

This is so easy and every needs to try it.

I may actually improve on the design a bit and add a small circulating water pump like this, though I may have to think about this design a bit since I'm not sure that the pump will like the warmer water it would be dealing with..

Wednesday Q & A!

Have we been using some weird terms? Is there a technique you want to discuss? Just have a general question? Welcome to the Wednesday Q & A!

Read the side bar and still confused? Pretty sure you've infected your first batch? Did you boil the hops for 17 minutes too long and are sure you've ruined your batch? Well ask away! No question is too "noob" for this thread. And no picture is too potato to be evaluated for infection! Seriously though take a good picture or two if you want someone to give a good visual check of your beer/mead/pumpkin gin.

Also be sure to use upvotes to vote on answers in this thread. Upvote a reply that you know works from experience and don't feel the need to throw out "thanks for answering!" upvotes. That will help distinguish community trusted advice from hearsay...at least somewhat!

apartment brewer checking in! A friend of mine turned me on to the method she uses for her immersion chiller (and I've seen around the internet a bunch) and it works great. 20+ft of copper coil, two vinyl tubes to attach, a submersible pump (kinda like this) and a bucket. attach one vinyl tube to pump and coil, other end goes from coil to sink. Fill a bucket, put pump in bucket and go to town. After 5 or so minutes the water coming out of the tube into the sink has cooled to where you can put it back in the bucket (adding a few frozen water bottles to the bucket) and reuse the water.

no need for garden hose or crazy business!

Does anyone use a powerhead above your CO^2 diffuser? If so, what kind? [R]

I really just need a way to distribute the CO2 around the tank. It seems to be sitting in the same corner as the diffuser.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the help though! I have amazon prime so I tend to go for the free 2 day shipping
