    IMO the best plastic fermenter available is the new fermenter by Coopers in Australia (I assume
    its available in the US somewhere).Its a thoroughly well thought out vessel made by one of the
    world's l...

    No, but yeast doesn't "erase" oxidation anyway. No, but yeast removes the oxygen which can

  • Posted in thread: Tri-Clamp Sight Glass - will it shatter? on 01-21-2015 at 01:32 AM

    slightly expanded. ...

    If you were pouring a new concrete floor for a shed or house you could set a long length of
    copper or stainless tubing within the concrete. Concrete is a great heat sink. Pump hot wort in
    one end, col...

    sounds like you are talking about pumice maybe..No, pumice is a naturally occurring material.

    Seems like you bought the version made for the European market (and here in Australia too we
