You will need shanks that are the wall thickness plus a minimum 1.5”, 2” is better. I like Rite Brew. Great prices and inexpensive USPS first class shipping.

Does your tun have a dip tube that draw from below the false bottom? If so, the amount left after draining is the extra or dead space. Hopefully it would be a quart or so.

$10 more plus wire and labor. The inkbirds get great reviews.

You can wire a socket to the Ranco if you want to stick with them. Going this route you can use a quality extension cord for the wire and split it in the middle. Plenty have done this before the inkbirds hit the scene.

My freezer has a light as well. I didn’t care enough and simply set it up with an outlet and plug the freezer in. This is the best option for resale as “reverting” is nothing more than unplugging.
I have one of these stuck to the outside of the lid for peeking. They are frequently free with a coupon and the batteries last over a year.

I would use 1/8” wall for gas, beverage side is less important. The ID of gas isn’t important outside of what will work with your fittings. I used the 1/8” wall for beverage side but switched the the 1/16” wall because it is easier to manage.

Did you do any sample blends first or did you just go for it and dump the entire soured/brett portion in?

Not a fan of hoppy beers on nitro. Nitro is all about texture and mouthfeel. The thick foam chokes off the aroma.

I was mistaken. $85/12lbs.  That’s one source. Haven’t looked too hard.

Good for you. Don’t sweat sanitation before you start chilling.

What is considered a decent price? Locals around here are asking $80+ for 10lb jars.

Just read this last night. Bottling lagers with Brett. I want to give it a shot, but I’d like to have an example first.

How many people remove their line? Never seen that.

This isn’t about the OP. You made a recommendation that many others would determine is unsafe. You and others can do whatever they hell they want, but somebody should point out he stupidity of your recommendation.

Now excuse me while I make toast in the tub.

BLC is the same thing as drain cleaner.
