    I couldn't fit an 8" so I ordered a standard 6x14 center hanging mount unit.You'll be fine. I
    worked with Chad on the original design and he's now making a bunch of them. Top notch customer

    So if you end up with a low FG like above its best to mash higher next time? I did a belgian
    with a 20% sugar addition fermented around 156 to try to get fg around 1.014 and it stopped at

    yup, i'm with you on that one. you should control your FG by recipe and process before
    fermentation, not by artificially stopping fermentation mid-way through.If it looks like you're
    going to miss you...

    I'll have to measure the ID of my immersion chiller, but what is the turn around for custom
    units?It depends where Chad is at in a production run but I've never waited very long for a
    filter from him....

    Ok, just to throw it out there to you all.... Has anyone thought about or played with Ozone for
    this application? I've seen some academia on the subject but would like to know if anyone else
    has consi...

    Yeah. Was reading this recently, They recommend a Nitric/phosphoric/detergent rinse which
    cleans and eliminates beer stone. You'll definitely want the nitric acid for beerstone removal.
    Not sure if ...

    Do you really need big starters? Sure you can make a small amount of yeast (too small for your
