    Totally get it - Usually this ends up being the CLT pump that can't afford to go down for even a short interval. I have found this to be my best argument for pump uniformity (as much as possible) and...

    Also just want to mention that the 3-A is a sanitary standard and represents a certified product (like a UL registration). There are many many companies and products that will carry this symbol, and...

    Seems a bit expensive for a plastic NEMA 4 enclosure. I am fairly certain that they would not charge you much more to flip one of these over to three phase. Its not a huge changeover.

    Id recommend you crush the rye first as it is usually much smaller kernel size. You'll need a fairly tight gap. Then you can then open up the gap for the barley afterward to prevent over-crushing the...
