Hi Kevin,
I am wondering about something:
Since tannins are tannic acid, it seems to me that if your pH starts out low and then rises during your sparge, that you have already extracted all the acid/tannins. A pH of 7.0 is neutral and anything below that is acidic. If pH is low and then rises, you have gone from acidic to neutral to basic.

You are right, in my haste I "mis-spoke"//mis-wrote in regards to the pH rising, and not falling.

Default BM No sparge

I did a simple ESB recipe with no sparge technique.
I filled the pot to 25L mark. Had total of 4.8kg grain.
With no sparge technique I obtained 21L of wort.
The mash efficiency was exactly 70%.

I assume the displayed temp is the process process temp of the SB.

Has anyone measured the actual mash temp within the grain cylinder at multiple locations during a run to see how close it is with the displayed value?

I am curious to see how consistent the mash temp is at various locations during a run using the SP design/process.

Just received my 20L the other day, and finally did my first brew on it yesterday.
Thanks to the OP and to all that contributed, its been a blast following your experiences.
Here is a few pics from brewday:

Awesome, Getafix! Did you fashion that blanket for it yourself or did you buy it? What is it made of?

Thanks, put an old camping/yoga mat to better use. Looks like very small cell neoprene.

Here is the cord that came with it.


I swapped that out with a heavyduty computer cable, which then plugs into an extension cord which ends in a 30/50 Amps plug.


30/50Amps.


The wiring was a breeze, and can plug into my stove or dryer outlet.
