What to do with my hose?

Post by Mad_Scientist » 2 years ago

I am looking for a better solution on how to secure my tubing during recirculation. :think:

This thermoplastic tube has a mind of its own. It jumped out when I wasn't looking and wetted (with water) two of my tool box drawers.

MS, if you have some Copper pipe that bends, you could make a J-type pipe bend, and put the " Straight J" under the Bungy Cord and hang the "Curve J" over the Keg, and insert the Hose thru it.

Or not, JMHO.

How about a fitting thru your lid?? Closed lid mashing?

I used to use big clothes pegs but a metal j is a much better solution that I also ended up using

Richard - Did you sort this problem out at all?

Those racking cane holders are only $2 BTW, but if that is too expensive I have heard of others using "bulldog clips" from office stationery.
The tubing is threaded through the metal ring part.

This is still a work in progress :sleep:

For summertime brewing with lid off, I am thinking of adding another hook eye bolt or share the one I
already have to help secure this stiff hose up to that point, then a piece of "J" copper.

For wintertime brewing, lid on, but that would mean I would have to drill a hole in my nice 25 cent
lid I got at a garage sale.   :lol:
