Just thought I would throw the idea out there for you DIY'ers.

It's tough to beat braided stainles though.
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had brewing....you don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?

72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"

If I was going to try anything, I'd consider a stainless-steel window screen instead. That thought has crossed my mind before.

Stainless Steel window screen exists right? Or am I crazy?

Make beer, not bombs.
