Got out and brewed this morning, giving some new riggings a proper test. This includes the volume gauge.


^7g as poured from 7 Ozarka jugs served as convenient calibrator . I was quite excited to see the final bit of the last jug barely break over the gallon marker. Spot on.


^Did BIAB today, and lost about a gallon with the grain. You can just see the top of tab 6 under the surface of the wort.


^This morning sent splendidly. Nothing unexpected happened, and I managed all of my target numbers.

Cheers.

Did I miss where you described how you made this or is it just as simple as "i used a hack saw and a file"?
