Exhausting Mash Tank


Recommended Posts

So we are looking at some options to exhaust our Mash Tanks outside to help alleviate some grain dust collection and humidity build up in our facility.


We currently use 1 tank and are in the process of adding another, and know that this will double the grain dust as well as the heat during milling/mashing.

 

Does anyone have any good ideas/tips for this?

Whatever you decide, if it ends up going outside you sure as shit should make sure there’s an airlock (think of airlock on a five gallon bucket fermenter) so bugs don’t crawl back inside seeking warmth and food. You also need a way to CLEAN that exhaust, or it will be a massive point of  contamination. I heavily advise against this, as someone who removed external exhaust capabilities from our build out. Cheers.

Cleanliness is my main concern as well. I just know that contamination would become an issue here.

What did you guys do in lieu of exhausting?

Just keep up on cleaning the grain dust?
