    I did something similar to this awhile back with a 30" sprinkler riser, sprinkler head, 1/2"

    Polystyrene and polyiso rigid insulation boards are both qualify as a vapor barrier. Just put
    the boards on the inside of the framing and use silicone sealant at all the seams. If you want

    What's the reasoning behind a space right next to your burners for a steel fermentor? You could

    the outside you could use another o-ring or just throw some bond breaker tape on there and be

    Dissimilar metals in contact can cause galvanic action where one material begins to corrode the
    other, they can eventually become fused together. fix, just grab 2 rubber washers or o-rings

    Brewing a high gravity beer like a Dubble will stress the yeast. I would not reuse that.I
    generally go this route when brewing a big beer, and to echo other posters, it's a better
    practice to harvest ...
