I thought I'd throw mine in. I vectorized a picture of me giving a thumbs up and I think I've finally decided on the brewery name listed. I did a test of the label with ink-jet, and as anticipated,...

I'll be utilizing the same system on a 2L level. It should hopefully be enough to get at least a few mL out of a full pound of hop matter. The setup will be nice to have for reagent distillation and...
