    It was a toss up of Spike or SS Brew Tech. Both had some better options than the other. They were shipping the 10 gallon fermentor but I ordered a 15 with a few changes so I am waiting still to see what they will or won't do. If they won't do what I requested then I will jump to the SS Brew tech

    For the capacity your looking at... stick with Spike. I was looking at the 1 bbl brite tank from SS. I really liked how Spike uses all tri-clamps. And the ability to drop in a CIP ball for cleaning is handy! With the SS you have to buy an adapter plate from Stout. You can't be too clean/sanitary!

    I have recently started making my own cold brew. I start with coarsely ground beans. I'm using Major Dickenson's blend from Peet's. I am adding just under 2 cups of coffee beans to 10 cups of water. This is combined in a large plastic container and set in the fridge for 24-48 hours. My problem has been filtering the brew. I have used a wire mesh sieve lined with cheese cloth, but this is still just a bit too porous as I end up with sediment at the bottom of my pitcher. I have also tried coffee filters, which are much cheaper, but the filter gets clogged and it takes a much longer time to filter my coffee this way.



    Any suggestions?
    I also employ the use of a "Coffee Sock", google it.
