Denny, is this just a really cool (pun intended?) toy in and of itself, or do you think it will be somehow be a significant advancement in your "no lift" brewery makeover?

I'd rather have questions I can't answer than answers I can't question.

Time will tell.  I brewed yesterday and it was totally no lift with my current setup.  Pump strike water from kettle to mash tun, gravity feed mash to kettle, pump from kettle to 10 gal. corny already in chest freezer.  This was more of an opportunity....Drew and I were asked to beta test.  What could I say?

That's awesome, and I look forward to hearing your impressions.

You could have said what you say to me, how you don't believe in automation, and a cooler is just fine.  ;)

Well, that's not really my attitude.  A cooler is just fine, but so are other methods.

I am looking forward to what you learn from this! I'd also like to hear more about your current no-lift setup and how the two compare. Staying tuned in...

The only thing that will change is that I'll ferment I n the conical rather than a 10 gal. corny in a chest freezer.   I have a pressure xfer kit for the conical, so I can still use CO2 to xfer finished beer into a corny for serving.
