    Transfer from fermenter with a pump

    Hey Guys, I'm trying to work out the best way for me to transfer out of my FVs while leaving them in place. I'm using 54 litre stainless pots as my FVs and lifting them out of the chest freezer isn't a great deal of fun. I also still have a spare 150L stainless pot I'd love to use for...

    Hi Guys, Just got a new air pump for aeration of the wort, but the air coming out of the pump has a real rubber smell, obviously from the diaphragms. Is this going to effect the wort? Do I need to take the pump apart and try and wash the diaphragms? Cheers.
