So, I wanted to update what I finally decided on - which was out of left field. I figured, what
the Hell? If I ruin it, who cares, and I'll learn a bit in the process (which has been the

Good to know on peeling the fruit - live & learn. I've thought about the apricot extract, but
to be honest - the couple times I used it, I don't think it did much of anything. I don't
remember it addi...

I brewed an APA, sort of an apri-hop type clone last fall. Brewing went fine, and then I

the apricots, thr...

If it is going to have a structural failure, it will do so at the weakest point, not

Great info guys - thanks a tun! :DI will def. try the screw / spring thing on the FB. As I said
earlier the FB kind of folded on one of the outer edges - not the middle where you'd expect if

Smee,Good point - you very well could have solved the mystery. If all of the liquid was pumped
from below, there would be nothing there to help support the weight.I guess at the end of the
