    Breweries (at least in the US) use caustic cleaners and acidic (typically phosphoric) or heat
    sanitation.

    1) that's awesome. 2) How have I never thought or bridging two of these like that middle

    Completely agree Martin, I hate seeing it on store shelves.

    1) Volumes don't make sense. To get 7.25 gal strike, and 6.65 run off you'd have an absorption
    rate of 0.6 gal/lb. This is a very hard squeeze. 2) Target batch size is the volume transferred
    INTO the ...

    get it centered I don't have any issues.I've used various magnets,bar, neod, hard drive...

    You really can't crush it yourself without a mill. You might see some benefit to double milling
    at the lhbs if possible.

Wasn't sure where to post this - maybe this will do the trick. New brewer here with a few successful extract batches to my credit. Planning on my first BIAG session this weekend and wanted to thank you for your kick ass calculator! I played around with others out there, but none made as much intuitive sense as the Priceless one has. I am really hoping to use the heck out of it in the coming year as I refine my process.

Once again, sincere thanks for your efforts!
