Is it strange to anyone else that you've got people saying they have done tons of batches and never experienced any loss in utilization and then others that say it couldn't have been worse??
Now I can understand people have different setups but come on, we are talking about something with not a whole lots of variables here. Most everyone is using keggles, mostly 5-10 gallon batches, same hop spider more or less. Could a vigorous boil have anything to do with it? Or maybe some are using different kinds of bags...I'm stumped here.
I have bought everything to make one and will be doing my own tests on a simple pale ale here soon. I went with the kiss method and am gonna rock a copper pipe straight through a reducer. Cost me all of 9 bucks.
Anyone have any ideas on how one guy can say he gets perfect utilization and another saying he gets almost nothing? This makes zero sense to me.
