The viscosity of water changes a bit more than 600% between boiling and freezing, so I can see why it would weep during use and not at room temperature. At operating temperature, all the system...

I think he's just saying that straining it won't be of any benefit. Yeast sediment will slip right through. There's nothing wrong with using a keg.

Siphon it. Pouring will stir up a lot of sediment and introduce oxygen, both of which are to be avoided. I use a racking cane because it's handy and I already had one.

I think it's interesting that this topic came up. I, too, used EC-1118 that had just expired. I had two packets and pitched both just in case it was weak from age. It still took off in about six...

Three 4gal buckets will net you 12gal total. If they actually hold 4.25gal each, then 12.75gal total.

It's pretty easy math, but Optimators will do that... :cross: ;)

I don't think any of the available stainless gas tubes are going to easy to modify. It would be easier to have your machinist hookup just duplicate the plastic one out of SS.
