    I got one that sounds about like that from the fish lab at my old university about a year ago.
    Strong bleach for 3 days, strong acid for 3 days, rinse a bunch. Seemed fine, but I traded it
    to someone ...

    Sounds like a water bottle, with the threaded top. I'd use it but I have little regard for my
    own well being, in general.Definitely NOT used for water. Water has always been 5 gallons, even
    when glass...

    I just got a free(cost a bottle of wine) carboy from a friend's customer. Unsure what was in
    it, And it's different. Kind of a blue glass color, holds about 7 gallons, and has what appears

    I've been using the 2Kw system here in NZ since it started and I couldn't be happier to be
    honest. For someone like me, who lives in a small apartment, it's great....I think you all
    missed my point, u...

    Wow, that's quite the rant, very impressive. I was skeptical of the boil-off too but after
    showing the video that was posted on the Kickstarter page to several folks in my HB club who
    said it looked s...

    Either I missed it or nobody explained the important factor here to the original poster here.
    It's NOT how much current you draw during normal use. It's the current that the circuit breaker
    will trip ...

    I know this post is off topic (back to the original topic actually) but today's article really
    missed the mark for me. I am not trying to berate the author or devalue the hard work that has

    I looked at your kick starter page; there are two immediate problems with this:1. Yeah, you can
    probably boil (barely) 5 gallons, but most 5.5 gallon batches (to get 5 in the keg) will have
    about 7 ga...

    Nothing wrong with the fotek; BIG problem with the Fotek counterfeits. There are pics on how to
    tell if you have one.

    To the original post - pumps are rated for flow and head(height of pumping, friction losses
    basically). At zero head, a pump may do 3 GPM; at 10 ft of head, it may do 0 GPM. So if you are
    going real h...
