They're fairly big and unwieldy with little solid metal wheels that get caught on the smallest obstacle. Ok if your brewery floor is clean and smooth I suppose.
Quite slow to lift too as they are basically a bottle jack pumping up the arm.
Hello @Paddy Melon , I live in Yokine and do BIAB.
I'm only about 4-5 brews into All Grain, so by no means an expert.
Planning on doing a Coconut Porter in the next couple of weeks and you're welcome to come over and help me muddle through. :)
We have a similar law that needs changing in WA.
My local Brewery (Seasonal Brewing) can sell their own brewed beers from the tap without any worries, but any beers from other breweries on their guest taps have to be bought with food.
It's ridiculous and extremely frustrating for them.
Probably a bit late to do anything now short of fishing it out and adding some weight, but when I've used magnets in the past I've put a couple of stainless steel teaspoons in the bag to weigh it down.
Unfortunately in my experience the bag does not seem to sink of it's own accord otherwise.
When you have a stable gravity reading over about 3 days you should be ok to bottle.
Do they predict a Final SG?
It still seems quite high at the moment though it may have some non-fermentable sugars in it to maintain the sweetness.
