I've been making Biodiesel for a few years. After taking a little more then a year off (moved to new house, had a kid etc. etc.) I've gotten back into brewing and need to dry wash now.
I've made my first batch and used a 1"clear water pump from harbor freight to mix magnesol in my first 10 gallon batch (had the pump recirculate. Some how, in my research I missed some people saying this was a bad idea. I plan to filter using 10-5-1 micron filters, will this do the trick or have a junked the batch?
Also I have a Eccentric fill rite pump. Would that be better for mixing or is a Diaphragm pump mandatory. Thanks in advance for your help
IIRC Magnesol was relegated to the obsolete pile dues to it being so finicky/difficult to filter. Try doing a research on wood chip purification in this forum. The method has been proven true, is inexpensive and renewable.
Some, like myself, have opted to place a wood chip drum in front of lead/lag resin tanks for added filtration.
