I think those are both the same pot. One is calling it 9 gallon the other 32 qt, neither completely accurate. They are actually 8.75 gallon if filled to overflowing. I have 2 of these pots and got...

Squeezing will not increase tannin extraction since the tannins that are soluble will already be dissolved and the insoluble portion doesn't become more soluble by squeezing it. It is rising temp...

Yeah, I honestly don't see a big difference in clarity in the long run so may stop using them once I run out of my current batch. But they are so cheap and easy to use that I have been just tossing...

Personally I would stick with your original recipe as you listed it since that is what you came up with, and it looks pretty decent. You can modify it from there on subsequent brews. The only...
