Thank you sir! I used to run a business that made stickers and shirts, so I was able to cut these out before I sold it, haha. The vinyl doesn't stick too well to the case, though...

Brewing today. Did a slight mod. All the talk about splashing wort made me think about adding a piece of hose to the outlet. Simple piece of silicone hose pushed over the camlock fitting in the lid. Seems to be working fine, no splashing and there is good swirling going on in there.

crazy - I am brewing on the mini today as well! I also made a couple mods as well. I switched over to camlocks, hooked the pump directly to the kettle (eliminating a hose), re-did the numbers on my site glass.

Starting up the boil. Getting a nice hotbreak. I use the stove to bring it up to boil temp faster. Seems to help yield a better hotbreak as well. This is my first time with the new hop filter. Brewing a Citra/Nelson Sauvin IPA so I'll try and put it through it's paces.

Lookin good jammin! Let us know how you like that hop filter. I'm brewing Wayne1's blue moon clone for the second time, hit the exact same preboil sg as last time. Don't know if its coincidence or not, but I got by far my best hot break on this setup. It foamed up a lot, had me scarred for a bit!

Thanks, JRB!

Great to hear about your consistency - that's a really big deal in my book. I will update you on the hop filter for sure.

Cheers!

PS: relax'n on the couch while I brew, love it.
