I've been working with Chad the last coupe days. Will have a 17in 6-7in OD in 400micron on order by the end of the day.

Thank you for this great info Marc! This thread is a prime example of why this site rocks. I've already emailed Chad to get a quote for my next brew (an RIS)

Just ordered a 6" diam x 10" to fit into my 10 gallon megapot in 300 micron, so we'll see how it goes

You are very welcome. I agree that this site rocks, I find that there are different types of homebrewers and HBT has a lot of similar folks who not only enjoy brewing but also tinkering and engineering to have the best, shortest brew day possible!

how do users of the 400 micron feel about it? is it letting too much gunk through (especially with regards pellets)?

anyone compare the 400 to the 300?

i'm leaning towards the 400, since i'd like to have good water circulation/exchange.

I've been following this thread for awhile now, read all the posts - no one's done a comparison except for 200 vs 300 and 200 seems a tad small

If only my co-workers were as prompt and efficient as Chad. I got the quote and invoice within minutes of my emails. Now I just have to wait for the 6x11/300 screen to arrive!

Well, I ordered mine on Tuesday, got it in the mail today.

Welds look ugly as hell (off-colors, etc), but overall it seems sturdy and there's a ton of weld spots, so nothing's coming loose; seems the guy uses two mesh screens instead of one, the whole thing feels solid in the hand.

I threw it in the dishwasher, it'll get clean next time I do some dishes, and I'll test it out in a few weeks when I have some primaries availabel

When a "debate" degrades to off topic bickering, it's time to move on. When it degrades to namecalling, the thread risks closure due to forum rule violations. Racial, ethnic, and sexual slurs are absolutely not tolerated and will net you at least a temporary ban, no questions asked (in this case, one week). Further activity of that sort will result in thread closure and permanent bans.

Carry on, keep it on topic, and no more antics.
