Default Brew porn, or my new gear

Got a bunch of new stuff in recently and got to use it on its inaugural batch yesterday. My calcs were a little off, but I expected that since I had never done an actual batch with it yet and had only done runs with plain water.

On to the pics!

10 gallon BoilerMaker


Inside of the pot w/ my 950W heatstick:


New (well, used) 10 gallon cooler mash tun:


SS screen in the mash tun:


More coming...

March pump mounted to an old desk drawer. It sounds weird, but it's portable and it works. The pump is connected to a remotely controlled switch so I can flip it on and off via a control I keep in my pocket.

Mr. Buford:

Quite an impressive collection. Sometimes I wish I had a pump. I have the Brewmometer, though and found I needed to calibrate it when it first arrived. Once set, however, it keeps good temperature. One warning: be sure you don't let the level of water in the pot drop below the temp probe unless you turn off the fire. Don't ask me how I learned this.
