    I did a search on this forum, to see if anyone had posted comments on Morebeer's improved
    conical, but came up dry. I received my 14.5 gal. unit last tuesday, and did my first 10-gal.
    IPA batch in it ...

    The only reservation I had about Jaybird's FB, was the size of the perf-holes. The 11 1/2"
    domed one I currently use in my combo/MLT-BK has 3/32" holes, which keeps most of the debris
    from my pellet-h...

    Hmmm !Cyberbackpacker raises an interesting point. As I mentioned in my 1/16/10 post, the hole
    pattern in my "all-purpose" domed FB is 3/16" dia. on 1/8" centers, more precisely, a "diamond"
    pattern, ...

    Jay,Thanks for the update. Three pieces, all welded! Let me count my mad-money, and I will PM
    you when I'm good to go. BTW. for IslandBoy's benefit, I did a quick conversion check, and
    found that your...

    Ah yes --- to be young again!!Well folks, last month, I ordered one of B3's 2.0 14-gal.
    conicals, burt for me it was a matter of survival. I have home-brewed for over 19 years
    fermenting in 7 & 5 gall...

    Jay, thanks for the update. I get the impression, from reading the posts on this thread, that
    most of your customers are putting your FB's into converted kegs. I measured my old keggle
    today, and foun...

    Jay, here comes one from left-field. I have an old converted keg, that I used many years ago as
    an MLT, but it had a mickey-mouse screen that sat on top af a set of pins, about 2" above the
    bottom of ...

  • Posted in thread: Air-drying on frames: how to keep the dirt out on 07-27-2009 at 09:39 PM
    Thanks for the input. The window screen sounds like a good approach. Since my frame is made of
    redwood, it is very soft & I can tack the screen in place with staples, then remove it when the
    hops are ...

    Greetings all!Did a search, but couldn't find the answer to my question. My Fuggles are about
    ready to pick, and I was planning to air-dry the cones in a 2'x2'x6" square frame with a 1/4"
    mesh hardwar...

    Being a newbee at the hop-growing game, I hesitate making a comment that will keep this thread
    goinglonger than nessesary, BUT on 5/05/09 I submitted a thread on broken tips, that drew
