TFFV back to back stripping run

Postby Ned » Tue Aug 25, 2020 7:46 pm

Just some advice please.
I usuallly only do a stripping run on 43 litres of TTFV into the 50 litre boiler on the 4" Neutraliser
Just wonder what is the best attack for doing 75 litres at a time as I have 75 litres currently fermenting.
I would like to do back to back, so not sure of the logistics. Do I let everything completely cool or just close down after the run, empty the boiler and refill.
Any help would be appreciated Thanks

equipment: 4" 4 Plate Bubbler with 500m packed section/blockhead and 50 litre milk can. Only the best.

What do you do with the waste from the boiler as if put down the drain not good to put hot liquids in drains as could cause problems if have enough and if using a hose to drain may not like the heat.

Outside if the drain issue (I pick some weeds to kill), run as soon and hot as you can safely handle things, conserve the energy used to heat everything

If you have a wort chiller coil (? I seem to recollect you being big into AG) consider using it to preheat the next wash with the condenser output - reduce the flow to the pc and (carefully) run it near the edge of overpowering for a nice hot output for the coil

A spare keg or empty fermenters hold hot dunder well too - gets a good cleaning too

I usually give the heat elements 5-10 minutes to cool and then drain through a HD 1” garden hose and then 20mm clear-reinforced hose to waste by gravity out the side of the shed.
The reverse heating coil of copper pipe sounds like a great idea especially this time of year.
Just run the waste through a coil in the fresh low wines and then out.

Great memory, unfortunately its not an imersion chiller its a counter flow chiller, but food for thought.
Its a shame top waste all that energy.

Not down the drain. Put into buckts and when cool, pour onto the lawn.
Has not done it any harm.
I think somementioned use it as a weed killer, when hot. Great Idea

I think it might have been from the fuck-up thread.
I seem to remember one member pouring hot dunder out near their fence post and it killed the grass.
