After thinking about the bags, I elected to go this route because I thought the bags would make my beer cloudier. Here's why. The bag is going to have folds where the yeast will settle all the way up the sides. When you rack from a bag, the yeast in the folds is going to fall away and cloud the beer. I of course have no proof this is the case, but I believe the theory to be correct.

Any chance of getting a picture of this? The sump setup I mean.

I know that this is an old post, but I need one of these. Know where I can get one? My chest freezer is 16" diameter and 30" tall. I am going to be doing 10 gallon brews.

Holy Zombie Thread!

Sorryfor the revival- but I have one of these and plan on brewing my first 10 gallon batch this weekend in it. Scored it for $5!

I'm excited for big batches now, but I have no clue how I am going to brew it, I only have one 7.5 gal kettle. Hmmm...
