Its supposedly a early Mr Beer (Or possibly Mr Brew).. It was given to me and although odd.. I like it.
Lots of head room
Nice and light
Clear see thru
Nice large 8" screw on top (w/ seal)
Top fits a standard air vent.
My colander fits in the opening so I can strain off the hops and such..
It even has a spout on the bottom about 3/4" off the bottom (Like on a bottling bucket can simply screw off for cleaning)
Been trying to find info on it and haven't so much as a wiki mention. Just what I was told and what a few here have said.. Which is the first sentence
Anyway I went and rigged something up.. removed the top of the air vent and put a 1/2" hose to it and ran it to a glass of water sitting next to it in the sink. filled it up about 2" enough for the water pressure to equalize the air pressure.. burping about once a sec now.. about the same rate the top was burping on the vent. If it blows up now it should just dump overfill the glass and go right into the sink.. That should work right..?
BTW got to love Craigs' list.. haven't cleaned my garage yet, but found that stainless steel service sink that fit perfect on there for $100.. and It came with the faucet. Be it I had to change the faucet arm to hold a 3/4" garden hose fitting but can't complain for $100. I had to replace the sink as it was too grubby to use for any sort of brewing activity and it was broken to the point of not being able to hold water. Hopefully I can make the rest of the room into a brew room once I get the garage cleaned up.
