    Brewed today, photo's as requested.
    002.JPG Start of transfer. 004.JPG still going but slow
    005.JPG Finished 008.JPG Good clear wort into fermenter.
    006.JPG Again a lot of hops also break material left in fermenter.
    Quite happy but very slow, I can speed things up by pulling the vertical until wort is closer to the bottom wort temperature 24 c

    Just getting the photos and the brewers' account of the brewday. Might have everything by tomorrow as the cameraman was not in yesterday or today.

    Grmblz what can we do for you? Happy to meet and show you that we are not the bad party that you so obviously believe we are. We were badly wronged and had no choice but to do what we did. Lots of brewers are made happy with our efforts and ultimately that is what this forum is about. Let me know how we could make you happy and if its something sensible and within our reach I will try my best. If you are just here to stir shit then so be it and I will leave you alone and concentrate my efforts to make Keg King a great business that home brewers will be happy to work with. What do you have to lose by talking with me? Only your incorrect illusions.

    I believe Keg-King and Keg-King CEO are two different people :)

    However not sure about any of the other accounts they have set up which are now coming to light ;)

    I suppose the only downside is some reluctance to murky the nice clear wort when pitching the yeast.:)

    So the one part i can't quite work out on your setup in the other thread is the long vertical piece? Could you please enlighten the ignorant?

    Had no choice in the past as we were blocked and not for anything we did wrong. Will you ask the same of all the others who do this? Think you know who I am referring to. What else can I do to make life more pleasant? Maybe a discount on a gen 3 fermenter when they arrive later this month? You might be pleasantly surprised.

    Hi Jayred. Our fermenters do have embossed markings from 18L up to 30L and also in freedom units (gallons) for our American brethren. For brewers wanting more increments, probably the least invasive and easiest solution is using graduations on an ss paddle or ss rod that you can remove rather than trying to engrave anything onto the fermenter walls. Brewers could also fill or dispense from the ferementers while they're positioned on a scale.

    The vertical piece was for just in case it didn't work, instead of having to siphon out the wort to the fermenter I can just stretch the spring. Or as a thought I have had since is to lower the vertical into the wort to get a decent flow until I couldn't get it any lower then just let it drain filtering through the spring.
    I will be keeping the vertical helix as a surety.

    I was expecting to see this in the Guten thread, seems the 3 stooges are haunting this one.
    Anyhow it looks promising.
