anyone have an issue with the port plugging / not flowing very much? The first batch I did with this new bottle it worked fantastic. I pitched on top of the yeast cake, so this is now the 2nd batch in this same bottle without a cleaning in between.
I hooked up the hose, pulled the valve open and it started flowing, but I did get some yeast. It slowed down after awhile and ran VERY slow the entire racking. I had to lift the whole bottle up higher as the beer got lower and tilt it to get it to finish. I bet it took 15 minutes to finish moving all the beer.
The yeast cake was pretty well set in the bottom, so I wonder if it was plugging up the outlet. Maybe I need to tilt the whole thing in the opposite direction for awhile to let it slide out of the way? Or maybe, just not rack another beer into these containers?

I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?
