Yes, it's a dense foam weatherstripping, and it ended up being a lot denser than I expected. I
was expecting it to compress, and was worried about getting the hinges attached. I added 125
lbs of weigh...

looks awesome!just curious - what kind of weather stripping did you use between the collar and

Have you experimented with a finer crush? That can make a huge difference and isn't as big of a

Just following up on this. The beer was indeed burnt. :(Couldn't even remotely pass it off as

fine holes. Would that still affect trub?It has condensed a lot. It's at the 1/2 gal mark, of a
