I'm interested in a fermenter if you decide to split it up. Please let me know if you

Saran wrap isn't going to provide much of a seal because it's so thin. I don't understand how
teflon tape would work, either. Why not cut a nice gasket out of silicone sheet?

I was really curious as to whether a torque wrench would work because I didn't think
foot-pounds translated to pounds of pressure. 50 foot-pounds applied with a torque wrench is a
lot of force for tho...

I think a spring between the plunger and the follower would work. The plunger is the screw on

making this modi...

I'm pretty sure this design is not going to work with the spring either on top of or below the

part of the FB....

The new MT is done! It's a 20 gallon Concord pot with a Jaybird false bottom. I ordered the
false bottom about 1/32" - 1/16" big so I could grind it to a perfect fit as these pots are
sometimes not pe...
