Here you go. HBT won't allow this extension so I uploaded it to my site.

Smuth10,

Thank you that's exactly what I was looking for! Saves me from trying to figure out the formulas.

Do you currently use a system like this? How do you like it?

I built my system based off of this thread. It is pretty much exact and works like a charm. I didn't want a completely automated system, so this was perfect for me. I actually like doing a lot of the work as I think you learn more. I just wanted to make it easier to control temps and transfer the wort around and this fit the bill for me. It really is great, just make sure you spend extra time sealing the bottom of the HLT around the element.

Yes I would agree I think that this system is going to work very well for my needs right now. I am in the process of building another system which is a whole lot more complicated than this one and have basically stopped since I have researched this one.

If this works like I think it will this will most likely be my only system.

Also you are correct I had some leaks around the element and ball valve in the inside of the cooler during water testing. I just added some silicone sealer to the element and valve and that did the trick.

You posted that just in the nick of time. I was brewing yesterday on my system and previously I would just kinda guess at volumes and temps. Thanks kindly.

NP. Just glad I still had it. Now that I am used to the system I don't find myself using it anymore. FWIW.

I am getting out of the hobby and have this system. I will be posting it up in the for sale section hopefully soon. I have the excel spreadsheet formula also if anybody needs it.
