Well - and Wow -
Certainly very ingenious.
As for the filtering - for the Wino's out there, and I am sure that it could be used for beer too, is a product by Buon Vino. I have the Mini Jet filter, cleans 5 gallons in about 20 minutes. My 6 gallon Carboys take less than 25 minutes, and it is Crystal clear -
Typically these run at a high price, I got mine from an online store in Canada,
all the US online stores were running at 165->200 for the unit, my Local brew store has it for $225.
I paid just over 150 for it - and that included shipping from canada
