    False Bottom For A Rectangle Esky

    Hi there, I am looking to upgrade my Mush Tun. Previously I used a SS braid, however I would like to get a square SS manifold to replace the braid. Does anyone have a heads up for an off the shelf manifold that would suit a 55L esky. Cheers Iggy

    Big 2 Week Starter

    Sounds like it's gone into the attenuation phase after initial fermentation. Should be fine to directly pitch if you use it immediately. If not then spilt it again and add fresh wort to get it building to Krausen once more. In a perfect worl its best to pitch at high krausen, however I beleive...
