That might work. I use one of these.

Bryan, I'm pretty sure I've asked, but that is even with purging the bottles thoroughly first, right?
Yup.. "Purging" doesn't really work when its not under vacuum. Its more like "gas mixing", and the higher the pressure the more the mixing.. I forget the exact amount but even when purging a keg like 25x will still leave you with .4ppm or so.
Agreed! Gases don't behave like "blankets". Well, maybe in certain situations they do for a short period of time, but definitely not in this case.
Bryan, do you plan to post a parts list (sorry if you did and I missed it)?

I've heard rumors of some guys who've been able to malt their own grain here but the more knowledgeable folks I've met here think there's something sprayed on the barley or some kinda kilning process to stop the barley from malting.That's a crime against nature right there.
A lot of homebrewers perform a whirlpool as part of their chilling process, to speed it up. Even if they didn't, it would seem cumbersome to remove the chiller and drop that filter down into the wort without disturbing the break cone.Whirlpool should be performed after chilling and removal of the immersion chiller.I had the same thought!I'm considering this. Think it would work with a siphon instead of a dip tube and bulkhead?The first glance made think it was an air filter from a carbureted car back when. Maybe a vendor had excess tooling to make these?
If one uses an immersion chiller, wouldn't it get in the way of that?
I don't understand how it works. Whirlpools push the break out to the sides where gravity pulls them down and to the center. If that things gasket is on the bottom, how is break getting in the middle?It would have to be added after the whirlpool, but that would be difficult, at least for clumsy brewers like me.

Will you please post a parts list for your set-up? I also brew Denny-style but want to adapt it for LODO.Sure, here is an Amazon wish list containing all the fittings. Some are no longer available, but at least you can see the specs. The foam board and foil tape are just what you can find at any hardware store.
I don't think what they call lemonade is as sweet as 7-Up, do you? I force-carbonate lemonade and use that. It makes a pretty good match for the Radlers I've had in Munich.Shandies are generally not brewed, Leinenkugel notwithstanding. Shandies are usually mixed in a serving glass by adding beer to lemonade.
I've not brewed with huckelberries before. If they are like blueberries you will need at least 1 lb/gallon for a huckelberry beer.
And traditionally, it's a soda like 7 Up. It's referred to as lemonade in other countries.
Okay, I tasted this again today, one week into lagering. The green apple is gone--thankfully--but there is a little sweet flavor that I would describe as candy or sugar. Remember those little straw candies they used to sell? They were paper straws filled with sugar. That's sort of what I'm getting from it.
