    You don't need to completely fill your wash tank. I put 10 gallons in mine, add the acid and check the ph after it has circulated for 10 minutes or so. I add more acid if needed and let it circulate...

    Do you have a final gallon total? From what you've posted it looks like you made a lot of syrup.

    The second pass on my 250 slows down too but it still puts out close to 200 gph of 18%. I love the...

    My season usually ends because I run out of weather, not buds or off flavors. It looks like the fat lady is warming up her vocalizer!

    Mike I bought a Yamada 1/2" pump for my hand pump press. I don't remember the model number but do remember that it had Teflon diaphragms. I have since replaced that press with a larger press that...

    If you are buying a brand new press get one with a diaphragm pump on it. Gear pumps are being phased out and a press with a diaphragm pump will be easier to sell when it's time to upgrade again. I...

    I use a Red Lion 2" pump into a 1 1/2" hose and it works good. I used to use a Honda WX 10 into a 1" hose and it took forever to pump 100 gallons. The 2" pump takes minutes to do 100 gallons.
