The idea is to attach a 5 gallon hop back to a 200 gallon open fermentation vessel and circulate fermenting kombucha through the hop back at a rate of about 5 gallons every several hours over several days so as not to cause any sort of current in the ferment or greatly upset the yeast.

The question of will it fail aside, can it be done? Is thee a pump or a method slow enough?
Tap: DIPA, oaked Baltic porter, XXX pale ale, dark IPA

Bottle: vanilla kombucha, oaked puh-er kombucha, blueberry kombucha,

Primary: rose hip kombucha, oaked honey and oolong kombucha, hopped kombucha brewed with green tea infused with cab. grapes
