Hey all, so I have decided on setting up a HERMS and am about to start construction. I am still battling with a few ideas though.
I took my old imersion chiller and converted it into the coil for the HERMS. It is 5/8 OD copper which I put some compression fittings on and will have camlocks on the outside of my keggle.
I have a 120v 2000watt element which I'm thinking of hooking up to a johnson a419 or similiar with the thermo probe attached to the T on the inlet to the HLT where the coil is connected (hope this makes sense). I figure this way, it will get the best temp reading. Also, I am considering drilling the hole for my element on the bottom of my keg (so the element passes through the center of the coil)
Any comments or suggestions?
