Wow thatís great, question do you have a cylinder or rectangle? Ours is rectangle and it doesnít extend the full length of the bottom in it, it was designed for a cylinder tun but we only had a rectangle. Iím thinking we might need a longer hose.

I have the circular one. So because i have a pretty high efficiency, i an able to get more volume hoping into the fermenter.

Itís small but it would probably work just fine. Bringing it up to 10 kgs of grain is pushing it in my opinion, that would be a pretty thick mash. However, 1x 50 quart cooler, 6 ft of 1/2" copper pipe, 3 copper "T"s, 4 copper elbows and a 2 inch long brass faucet with copper nipple cost me approx 60$ CAD.

That may be true but my DIY skills are less than zero. I donít even allow myself to own a single power tool. I just donít trust myself with an electric drill.

I believe that my mesh screen is off of a dishwasher hose. I think you can buy them for about $15. Then you just have to work it off after cutting the ends off.

For that price, Iíd go with the one I suggested for the extra volume. And, of course, so you can be more like me.

Though youíd still need a SST ball valve and Bazooka. Donít like the looks of that plastic tap, nor not knowing what theyíre using for a "wort separator". Quality has its price.
