    We recently built a shed-roof outdoor bandstand at the pub. With just the bare plywood roof deck and exposed rafters, the sound was absolutely horrible. We used cheap, unfaced fiberglass batt...

    If you're using a DO meter, skip the foaming agent. That would just make it look like beer, not take up O2 like it.

    I've been considering the same thing as I have a mysterious source of O2 in our...

    For bottling/canning, you will need tanks with a higher pressure rating than is normal for fermenters. A 2 Bar rating would be about right.

    For the voltage question, higher voltage means lower amperage so smaller wires.

    To control the speed of the pump, you'll need a 3-phase pump. A proper variable frequency drive will be capable of...

    Still a mystery.

    I replaced all the bottle seals. Our TPO still sucks.

    Where the hell else can air be getting into the bowl? I have no leaks whatsoever. I've replaced every seal I can. I've tested for and/or...

    Good points, Unferm.
