I'm wondering, has anyone attempted to replace the ball valve in this thing? I'm wondering if I can get one of the Blichmann Linear Flow valves to fit in there. I really like that valve on my Boilermaker G2. I'd be interested in doing this to use the Blichmann QC on the valve for the Foundry.
I got the 10.5gal Foundry, but I was able to order a Wilser bag by just specifying which unit I had. I'm pretty sure he's already got the dimensions for the 6.5gal Foundry, but you can email him to be sure.
Did you order directly from the Anvil website? I ordered mine from there on 6/22 and haven't gotten a notification yet. I also got the small batch adapter ring, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it...
When you cut the slits into your manifold, what did you do to make sure you removed all the burrs on the inside of the tubes? I just build a manifold myself and I was able to get a file inside the tubes to remove the burrs, but I'm a bit worried that I missed small bits of copper.
