If I had time to build another one, I might consider it! I built mine using information from Bobby_M's video. It was actually super easy and cheap to do myself. I used the 30x30 mesh he recommends in...

Chilling in-kettle is the issue for sure. I have done 10 gallon batches with 9+ oz of hops using my homemade one (Bobby_m style) with no issues whatsoever. Flowed like there weren't even any solids...

I am not sure about replacing them, but:
If they work and if they seal, then don't mess with them! No need to replace a functioning thing with another functioning thing.

Correct, as usual. You will need to keep a pressurized environment in place if you wish to maintain carbonation when filtering an already carbed beer. When I did it, I had an extra day between...

I also highly recommend a clear filter housing. It enables you to see the condition of your filter element, and the level in the filter housing. For some reason,...

In looking at some sites, there are apparently more housing size options then I was aware of. Most describe the one I have as "10 inch large filter housing". There is apparently a short 10" housing...

A note on de-gassing the beer: This is definitely true. I usually keg the beer, top it off with only a couple pounds of CO2, chill it, filter it, and then carbonate it. HOWEVER: I have filtered a...

I only use it for 1 filtering session, which might include multiple beers. It is usually a single 10 gallon batch in two corny's. That is about all the filters can handle before they start getting...

I have been filtering all of my beers (especially the dry hopped ones) through a canister filter with a 3 micron element (nominal/cheap). It adds about $1.10 to each brew, but I have found it very...

Although still important, sanitizing becomes less important as the beer ferments due to the increase in ethanol, which is basically a sanitizer.

I have not ordered from them yet, but will be soon. I want to brew a lot this winter, so I will probably just stock my freezer with several varieties soon.

It tastes like eating hops... :eek: I would like to try and fix it... It was fairly expensive, too. Like $102 with shipping.

The final batch was 11.5 gallons, so using that:

((14.5*84)-(11.5*66))/3 = 1.153 Correct?

This beer is actually already fermented. I would prefer to do a small mash/boil instead of using DME. Same thing really, but sticking to the all-grain theme.

I recently brewed what was supposed to be in Imperial IPA. Very malty and very hoppy. The goal was to be similar to a Stone Ruination. However, after the brew session with my new sparge setup, I...

No insulation, glass pot lid.
