once the receiving vessel starts to fill will help reduce splashing. And hopefully the pressure

I'm looking for a self-priming pump that can pump fermented beer from my basement to the first
floor (about a 25ft lift). The beer will be non-carbonated and unfiltered. It'll be at around

I ordered some 2x2 stainless mesh (.063" wire diameter) from McMaster. I'll let you know how it

strains. I'm ...

Well if Fermentis says it's no good at ale temps I'm not sure why you'd assume any different.
If you have an aversion to swamp coolers, then can you lager at all? If not, why are you trying

I don't want to mess with the swamp cooler technique, but thanks for the advice. I just want to

I trying to brew something similar to a lager, but I don't have lagering capabilities. I can
only ferment at 65-68 degrees. I'd like to use an actual lager yeast, not a steam beer yeast
and I was look...
