I used bobbm's method, it worked very well. I don't know how to do the inside.

My first beer has been fermenting now for 1 week. I made a simple yeast harvester out of 8" of 1.5 IS dia tubbing, 2 1.5" tri clover nipples, 2 1.5" caps, gaskets, and clamps. I figure that it is about $20 worth of parts.





It looks like I will be able to harvest a decent amount of WL060 American Ale Blend. Question, how long should I leave it connected before taking it off?

Thanks!

Once its full as it appears in the picture, I would disconnect it and store.

It looks great, but why have an additional leg? Three legs can never wobble, 4 can. Were you concerned about strength?

I wanted it to be 1" taller than normal and it was recommended to go with 4 legs. I have "felt" mine and a 3 leg one at their place. Mine is definitely more stable.
