I don't have issues with cold break (well the proteins and such). I have hop pellet matter issues. Cold break in the fermenter is supposed to be good for the yeast and I've hear excessive filtering...

Good luck my friend. You are in for a bag of hurt regarding filtering. Completely insane if you don't use a hop spider/paint strainer or something like that. Now I am using biodiesel filter bags...

Mine is a 1725 RPM 1/3 HP that gives me 100 in-Lb torque at 172 RPM with aid of a 10:1 ratio gearbox (reducer). This...

Kick but man. I like it.
