Gravity works well with mine. The slower rate of flow ensures effective cooling from 215 down
to 50 degrees. I use my old IC as a pre-chiller in a bucket of ice water.

+1 to the Good Humans from Shorts.Their Bellaire Brown is pretty bland, but the Good Humans is
a great seasonal that I always look forward to.

This sounds like a good excuse to start brewing in 5 or 6 gallon carboys.I triple dog dare that

Just picked up a couple sixers of Short's Good Humans - it's a seasonal double brown dry hopped
ale.Love most everything that comes out of Short's Brewery.

Posted in thread: Hop Union 1# bags- resealable? on 12-22-2013 at 08:42 AM
That's what I thought based on my belief that they use a thicker mylar style bag. I always
transfer my hops to foodsaver bags when I break into a pound bag.
