    Scratch that. The reducer is 2" female to 3/4 inch female. I added a barb in between that and
    the valve.

    I cant remember for sure, but I think I got all the additional parts from Ace hardware locally.
    The 2" male to 3/4 inch female reducer shouldn't be too hard to find. I added the pipe clamp
    around the ...

    Here's a photo of my setup. For reference, the crossmember on the stand is just above the 1
    gallon line.

    I usually do 20 or 25 gallon batches. With the dump/collect/dump schedule I suggested above
    I've never had the trub collect much higher than about a half gallon (about 4-5 inches up the
    cone). I've ne...

    Your setup is very close to what I have, same stand, it appears.My racking port is about 6-8
    inches up from the base of the cone, slightly below the 1-gallon line (at about the 3/4 gallon
    area). I don...

    Mine's mounted vertically (the fermenter sits in the basement bathroom, directly above a
    drain). The racking port is at about 45 degrees but I generally try to dump or collect before
    the trub reaches ...

    I have a 30 gallon with a 3/4 inch dump at the bottom, occasionally it takes a minute to begin
    flowing, but I've never had it clog up entirely. I think you'd be okay going to 1/2 inch.

  • Posted in thread: Upgrading to 20 gallons batches - advice please on 07-11-2013 at 10:45 PM
    When I moved from 10 to 25 gallon batches I quickly realized that cleaning and sanitizing five
    carboys was a royal pain in the A. Also, racking to kegs too forever. The best purchase I made
    was a 30 g...

    How big a hole are we talking? Couldn't you just use a step bit and a drill?

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. 30 gallons of boiling water is going to be a tall order, but
    I'm going to give it a go with hot tap water and bleach.
