Very insightful Kaz. I never thought about losing that much volume to break material. Is that something more common in all grain as opposed to extract? Also, when referring to the second loss in volume via bottling, is that mainly from the yeast cake forming?
The more I find out the more questions start running through my head. I will definitely be getting a 10 gallon pot now though!
