Interesting project I found on youtube.com Wile preparing and repairing all my brewing gear. One item i have lacked is a keg washer. While serving beer in kegs is the most efficient way for me. I have not had an efficient way to clean kegs.
- 600 gal/hour pond pump
- 3/4″ pipe (2 ft section cut to size)
- 1/2″ pipe (2 ft section cut to size)
- 3/4″ T fitting
- 3/4″ cross fitting
- 3/4″ slip to 1/2″ threaded elbow
- 3/4″ to 1/2″ reducer
- Two 3/4″ caps
- Male 1/2″ threaded to 3/8″ barb
- 3/8″ tubing cut to size
- 3/8″ barbed T fitting
- Two 3/8″ barbed swivel nuts
- Six worm clamps
- CO2 and liquid keg disconnects
- Two five-gallon buckets
- Lid with 6″ diameter hole
I use one step cleaner as part of my cleaning process. Having a setup similar to this would be ideal for a small brew-house setup. I found Matt’s Matt’s Keg Washer on the American Homebrewers Association website.
Made a visit to the hardware store . I am in the market for a small pond pump. I am going to try a smaller size pump. as i am cheap and not willing to spend 69.00 dollars. The pump I am thinking about is a 275 GPH Pump .
275-GPH Submersible Fountain Pump
- Ideal for medium fountains
- Adjustable flow control
- Ideal pumping height of 3 to 5-ft
- Connects to 3/4-in or 1/2-in ID tubing
- 16-ft cord included
Who am I kidding I think I will go with the next size up. If i am going to do this lets do it right. This Pump will be the one I get. Se ya next time.
The lift of the water will only be two feet . I already have the buckets and the PVC so i should be ready to put it all together.
