    Super Moss Issues

    I know this is an old post, but I will also confirm the Super Moss issues. Unfortunately I found out with our pilsner that Super Moss was not as effective, will definitely be switching back.

    Wheat Beers

    I've found with our hefeweizens that towards the end of the keg there will be excess foam on top, which would make its way through the line even before the keg was finished. This was when we were...

    DIY Option

    There's also the option to build your own from window air conditioners. Cost each would be $300-400. Works the same way as a normal glycol chiller. You'll just have to search around if this is...

    What I meant was that if you didn't even have stir plates and just fermented three 20 liter batches that you would have enough yeast from that. If you incorporate a stir plate into this, you might be...

    The periphery speed can be set to the same speed, the difference then would just be the length of the roller which is what would give the higher throughput. The peripheral speed is just the RPMs...
