Off subject, but do you know where I can get plans for a non-appleseed reactor, 20-40 gallon? have seen pics before of a 55 gallon drum with a cone bottom. also thinking of using dry-wash instead of water. where does this fit into the process? I have at least one other person to set up a small co-op. thanks again.

Very cool. Is it affordable enough for the average home brewer to own?

To new. They haven't priced it out yet, but I have a request for pricing in, and I'll post my price here when I find out.


Trent, check out my gallery to see my first non-appleseed processor. I use magnesol to clean my biodiesel. First I recover the excess Methanol, then mix in the Magnesol. After mixing for 30 min I filter out the Magnesol.

Nope, not yet.........After Earl passed away last year the family decided that they wanted me to run the entire ranch [6,000 acres] so I've just been tooooo busy! I am going to try and get it set up this summer.
