    I use my MegaPot 1.2 as a mash tun. I have connected the "Universal False Bottom" to both my

    I was looking at the Alpha Ruby system for over a year. It was the perfect design for my setup

    cleansers and I ...

    30-40G mash and boil kettles for 15-25G batches. However the price was a *bit* out of my reach.
    Fortunately I...
