Cheers and happy brewing
In both it shows some great ways to collect only yeast/scrub and minimum beer/wine!!

I have been using 2 conicals like this for 5 years and haven't had any issues. They are perfectly fine.

This is mine and it is working great. I just finished my second batch. It is so easy to use. I am now thinking about getting a second one.
