The 300 series of stainless steels were createded for the brewing industrie. Before 300 series stainless, tanks sprung leaks.

I'm in the process to. From what I read so far. It looks like when you're 2/3 to 3/4 throuh ferment you add the Brett. But as you said " It seems it's 'anything goes; try anything' in the world of funk/sour "

Has anyone tried the sour strarter that was in Zymurgy artical "Funk with less Fuss" (March/April 2011). I would like to make a sour beer . This seems easier than going with Brett. Whats the best way to go.         Thanks  Vin

If you can use this control for heating and cooling . On inside cover when removed will show how to change from one to the other. I hope this helps.

Just wondering if your starting a fire in the barrel your going to melt the food grade liner out of it. Use a regular barrel strip paint off and paint with high temp stove paint. Or is a food grade thicker material?

Price depends on the way you run the coil in deep trench or drilled hole. Here's a guy site . Pete runs it and very informative. He can probably give you info for your area. Went to a couple dems he did. His house is the test site on south st. Also check what tax credits your town, state might give you.

Once my 3 year family membership runs out I'll probably just get two of the lifetimes for my wife and I but a comparable price break would be nice.
  Why not just get the family lifetime =700. instead of 1200. for you and your wife unless im reading it wrong.

Equipment and Software / Re: I bent my rod
« on: October 18, 2010, 10:47:32 AM »
You can straighten the rod but you will need to be able to determine how it's bent. That can be accomplished by spinning the roller and finding the high spot.  This is typically done on vee blocks with an indicator but you can also do it on a very flat table but you will need a way to find the high spot. Once you've determined the high spot, you will then need to tap it with a hammer (gingerly) to bring it back into the axis of rotation. Then spin it again to find the high spot and tap with hammer.  This can be repeated until the runout of the spindle is in check. will need to return it to the supplier for rework and/or replacement

+1    Also check the bushings on the crank side From what you said 1 or 2 migth be shot.
