Double sized batches

Recommended Posts

Lusty and Titan were spot on with the extra weight. With the ferment temperature a little high I decided to put the FV into a tray of cool water. That was an interesting challenge to say the least. I got there but it was quite an effort.

(Further note to self: put FV in tray before adding the water)

I did double-batches (60 litres) many years ago when I was in my 20's.  I seemed to manage the size and weight back then.  Now, it would be a prolapsed disc for sure! 😮

I know what you mean, BS.
I'm in my 50s now but I'm a large fella so I can handle a bit of lifting. Having said that, I think I just need to manage my process smarter and I should be ok. ie.
1. Put the swamp cooling tray down first.
2. Put the FV in place before adding the bulk of the water.
3. Have more than 6 litres of fridged water on hand for temp control.
It's all a learning curve but enjoyable at the same time.

Thanks for the input, Titan. I'm all over that one. My swamp cooler tray is quite low and sits below the tap. I just have to top it up with water frequently.

Cheers.
